Are you looking for a delicious and GERD-friendly chicken wing dipping sauce for your traditional chicken wings, veggie chicken, or roasted cauliflower “wings”? Look no further than this creamy and flavorful sauce, which is perfect for those who are looking to avoid added acids in their diet.
Our chicken wing dipping sauce is made with fat-free or plant-based sour cream, that is not only delicious, but also a healthier alternative to traditional dipping sauces that can be loaded with fat and calories. Honey adds a touch of sweetness, while parsley, dill, and marjoram lend a fresh and herbaceous flavor that perfectly complements the savory taste of roasted chicken wings.
For more flavor, we’ve added celery salt and turmeric, the latter of which not only gives the sauce a vibrant yellow color, but also provides anti-inflammatory benefits.
Chicken wings without an acid and pepper-based hot sauce or tomato-based barbecue sauce don’t have to be boring! Simply give them an acid reflux friendly chicken wing dip that is a unique and delicious sauce.
Plus, you can prepare it in only one step… simply stir everything together and you are done. The flavors do get better if you let the sauce chill for 30 minutes, but that is the perfect amount of time to bake some wings!

Sour Cream – The perfect base for this chicken wing dipping sauce making it thick and creamy and adds a nice tangy flavor. Use a dairy-free sour cream if you are lactose-free. Follow Your Heart and Kite Hill both make excellent dairy-free/vegan sour creams.

Honey or Molasses – Calms and balances the sharp, tangy flavors.
Celery Salt – To add depth of flavor and tie everything together!
Turmeric – Gives the sauce a vibrant yellow color, but also provides anti-inflammatory benefits.
Coconut Aminos – Creates a light sauce and adds a tangy, savory, nutty flavor.
Fat-Free or Plant-Based Milk – Allows for that perfect creamy consistency.
How to Bake Chicken Wings
Baking chicken wings is a simple, hassle-free, and lower-fat way to prepare them versus deep frying.
To start, preheat your oven to 400°F. Spray a sheet pan with vegetable oil spray to prevent sticking.
Pro Tip: For the crispiest skin, pat the wings dry with paper towels before seasoning with a generous amount of salt.
If you are not sensitive to pepper or garlic powder you can also season with those (otherwise, there’s plenty of flavor in our acid reflux friendly chicken wing dipping sauce).
Next, place the wings on the baking sheet, making sure to leave space between them so they can cook evenly.
Finally, bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the skin is crispy and golden brown, flipping them halfway through to ensure even cooking.
How To Air Fry Chicken Wings
Air frying will make you even crispier wings with less fat than baking.
Start by patting the wings dry with paper towels.
Next, season generously with salt and place in your air fryer in a single layer.
Pro Tip: You may be tempted to stack the wings up, but you will get much crispier results if you air fry in two smaller batches instead of one large batch.
Finally, air fry at 400°F for 18-22 minutes, until crispy and golden brown.
How To Check If Chicken Wings Are Done
Regardless of how you prepare your wings, the best way to check for doneness is with a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest drumette. Make sure you get a reading of 165°F right up against the bone.
How to Serve Chicken Wing Dipping Sauce
I will always recommend serving this chicken wing dipping sauce with lightly seasoned chicken wings, but it’s so good and would be great served on top of baked potatoes or as a dip for fresh veggies.
Store any leftover dip in the fridge for up to 5 days. Enjoy!
