I adore chicken wings. I don’t know what it is about them that makes them so popular. If you think about it, you get a tiny amount of meat on a wing.  Maybe it’ the sauce or just the magical combination of sauce and chicken.  Chicken wings just seem to be universally liked.  You don’t have to live without them when you are on a diet or eating healthy.  You can’t eat the whole basket but you can certainly enjoy a few of my Chocolate Malta Chicken Wings.

Going to a party, let alone a Super Bowl party, while on a diet, can be a special kind of torture.  You can either save all your calories for the party; or eat before in hopes you won’t eat much there.  If I have saved all my calories for the party, then I am so hungry that I could win an eating contest with how fast I can stuff the food in my mouth.  If I eat before, all the delicious food taunts me.  The smell arouses my taste buds and then tries to over ride my head saying “don’t eat it”.  I can hear my taste buds saying “eat it” and my brain saying “NO!”.    I always try to bring a dish I can eat.   Chocolate Malta Chicken Wings is the perfect dish to bring.  It still “feels” like Super Bowl food.  They are still a little indulgent but much better than their deep-fried counterparts.

I feel like I have tried every single trick in the book when it comes to dieting.  It is such a mind game.  I’ve tried telling myself  “Nothing tastes better than thin”.  Oh hello, thin does not have a taste, doesn’t work for me.  I’ve tried “Just do it”.  Just do what?  Eat that?  I’ve tried to tell myself I won’t remember what I ate this time last year; but I will still feel bad about my weight.  Oops, I do remember what I ate for the big game last year, darn food memory.  I’ve tried to think that this is about being healthy so I can have a long life for my little one.  You would think that works but then my husband has another health issue and I’m back to putting me on the back burner.

Up to last year, I had been doing really well getting the weight off, slow and steady.  Last year, I totally caved to the stress of my husband’s heart condition.  It really took everything I had just to get through which left no energy to deal with my own issues.  This year I am putting myself first.  I’m trying to put eating healthy and exercising on the top of my list.  That means planning.  I am an obsessive planner which can stress me out.  I have to plan out breakfast, lunch and dinner to successfully eat healthy day in and day out.  So I’ve got to try not to be so obsessive about it but still do it, got to get my type A personality in check.  This should be interesting.

    All time favorite OXO tool is the slanted measuring cuts. They stay level and you get an accurate mearsurement. Thanks OXO and Food Done Light!!

  2. Charlotte Moore says

    I like lots of their things, but really like handheld grater/zesters. I would like the sifter I saw with a top on it I am sure. I would love to win this. What a great giveaway.


  3. Annamaria says

    What is my favorite OXO tool?? That is a trick question!! Any of them that I have purchased have been wonderful. Great quality that holds up well and is a good price. But I must say my favorite OXO tools are the avocado tool and the egg slicing tool with the swivel.

  4. Stephanie Christon says

    I don’t own any OXO products yet, but I think I would really like the slanted measuring cups. Thank you!!

  5. Charity Cram says

    I really like my OXO can opener! The can opener I had broke and I had used an OXO one at a family member’s house and had to get the same one =)

  6. Ann Marie Mones says

    I like so many of their products, it is hard to choose my favorite! I have been looking for a good quality salt grinder lately, and the Lua Salt Mill looks great, so that is my favorite OXO product, and I hope to get one soon!

  7. Louise says

    I love these recipes :). I find it to be a joy to make meals at home for my husband and I to enjoy. To win these items would truly be a blessing for us.

  8. Rona K says

    I love all their products that I have. The one I probably use the most is the angled 1-cup measure. I’ve been looking for the 2-cup one.

  9. Anne Webster says

    I love the 2 cup angles measuring cup. It is so easy to read. They are accurate when it comes to liquid measuring. The measuring cups are great too.

  10. Stephanie F. says

    I love the OXO turntables that you can put in cabinets. You wouldn’t believe how much it helps with organization and sanity. I have my spices and cooking oils in a cabinet by the stove.

  11. Thomas says

      Thanks so much Thomas. I love hearing from people that read my blog. So glad you let me know you were out there.

  12. joni Owada says

    I love the garlic press. I need one for peeling and chopping them by hand as I am doing, is so not working well for me.

  13. Tabatha Foy says

    I don’t currently own any OXO products but I would love to try them. I would especially like to try the salt and pepper grinders. Thank you for this opportunity!

  14. Kelly O says

    I love the oxo hand dishsoap cleaner I have. It was fun to see all the products they have!! So many to choose from!!

  15. says

    Now I’m curious to try that chocolate malta BBQ sauce! :-) It’s hard to moderate calories and such especially when some foods that are not as good for us are so tempting. Hunger doesn’t help. It does feel good to indulge though. Thank you for sharing these wings with us!

    • Christie Daruwalla says

      Thanks Dionne. It’s a fun recipe. At least I can enjoy a few wings. I might have to keep my one splurge meal for superbowl.
