This party-ready chicken wing recipe will not disappoint, especially if you make and serve the blue cheese dip on the side.
4 ounces crumbled blue cheese
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup hot sauce (such as Frank's RedHot)
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon sugar
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 pounds chicken wings, tips removed, wings separated at joints
How to Make It
Make dip: In a bowl, combine blue cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar, lemon juice and garlic powder, stirring well. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and chill for 2 hours.
Make wings: Preheat oven to 450ºF. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil. Place a large cooling rack on top of sheet and mist with cooking spray.
In a small pan, combine ketchup, hot sauce, vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, sugar and butter. Cook over low heat, stirring, until well combined and smooth. Pour into a bowl and let cool.
Pour 1/4 cup of sauce into a small bowl; cover and set aside. In a large bowl, toss wings with 1/2 cup sauce until coated. Place wings on rack. Roast for 10 minutes, then brush with more sauce. Roast 10 minutes longer; brush with more sauce. Turn wings over, brush with sauce and roast 10 minutes. Brush with more sauce and roast for a final 10 minutes.
Remove wings to a large bowl and toss with reserved sauce. Serve with blue cheese dip on the side.
I have this planned for tomorrow nights dinner, so in the interest of saving a bit of time I made the blue cheese dip tonight. This was a new one for me as I have never made it, but we had just recently came in to quite a bit of fresh blue cheese crumbles and decided to give it a go. This was absolutely delicious! Can't wait to see how the wings turn out.
This was good - but too much trouble. I'd look for a recipe to be stewed in the crockpot next time. The blue cheese sauce is delicious, and I have plenty left over to dip veggies in this week. I didn't quite get the chicken hot and spicy enough for my husband... he added sri racha sauce to the dip, and he was ever so happy!
