READY IN: 1hr 10mins




  • Wings:
  • Disjoint the chicken wings and discard the tips. Rinse and pat dry. The wings must be completely dry to fry properly since there is no batter or breading.
  • Preheat the oil in a deep fryer or a large deep pan to 365°F.
  • Add the chicken wings a few at a time to the hot oil. Do not allow the oil to cool as the chicken is added. Deep-fry for 6-10 minutes or until crisp and golden brown. Drain well by shaking in the fryer basket or a strainer.
  • Blend the butter with 1/2 bottle of hot sauce for medium-hot wings. Add additional hot sauce for hotter wings or additional butter for milder wings.
  • Combine the wings and the hot sauce in a large container. Let stand, covered.
  • Serve the chicken wings w/ Bleu Cheese Dressing and celery sticks.
  • Blue Cheese Dressing:
  • Combine the mayonnaise, vinegar, dry mustard, pepper, and salt in a large bowl and beat until well blended. Mix in the blue cheese.
  • Add enough cold water gradually to make the dressing of the desired consistency, whisking constantly.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • Makes 3 1/2 cups.
