Q: My father-in-law, despite being a trim, fit guy, has chronically high cholesterol and has required open heart surgery in the last year. He sticks religiously to the Mediterranean diet his doctors have prescribed and is doing quite well. The only problem is this diet deprives him of the one food he loves best — Buffalo Chicken Wings with Blue Cheese dressing.
With family gatherings and football games coming up, I would love to find a delicious, heart-healthy way to recreate this treat for him but my online searches haven't come up with much. Do your savvy readers have any suggestions?

But they are still fried. Are you looking specifically for a baked recipe? Readers, can you help her out at all?
