Buffalo Chicken Wings W/ Blue Cheese Dip

"These wings are baked, not fried, which simplifies the prep. The recipe was adapted from The Anchor Bar in Buffalo, the bar where these wings were originally served."

  1. I have made a gazillion recipes for wings and so far this one is the very best! Baked the wings at 400° for 30 minutes, then poured off the grease, turned them over and returned them to the oven for 10 minutes. They were perfect. Did not make the dip, but will at a later date when the diet allows. Thank you so much - This is a keeper and will definitely go into my WOW cookbook.
  2. Ok, I used the sauce and the baking method tonight on some wings. No dip. I had no vinegar, so I used some Worcestershire sauce instead, same amount. My wings didn't crisp up, but the flavor was great. I will use this recipe again after I get vinegar and see if my wings crisp. Might give the dip a try too. (I usually don't do anything to my wings dip wise.) It's a keeper though, thanks for sharing!
  3. I’ve made this so many times. I LOVE it. I didn’t have any wings tonight, but I sliced up some chicken breasts and baked them as if they were wings. So good!!! Now. The dip. I’ve always used pre-crumbled blue cheese but I bought a block and crumbled it myself. OMG. It’s a game changer in all the right ways. I had a lot of leftover dip so I will probably use it for another recipe in a couple days
  4. My first recipe I've tried on here and this was so easy to make and it was absolutely right on with the taste. Will be making this again. Never again will ever buy already made. Thank you!
  5. We had the DGSs (very picky eaters) visiting so was looking for something they'd eat and yet was easy to make and decided to try this recipe that I've been saving for some time. It was perfect, went together so easy and fast and the flavors are spot on. Not to spicy for the kids yet very flavorful. Baking in the oven made them so much easier than other wings I've done and we had a great dinner on the table in no time that was enjoyed by all. I followed Marie's advise and trained the grease then returned to the oven and they were perfect, not greasy at all. Didn't make the dip, just used a bottle that I had in the fridge (said I was in a hurry) and while I'm sure the home made would be better, this was still very good.
