INGREDIENTS

  • 1 TBL garlic powder
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne
  • 4 pounds chicken wings
  • 3 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 pound blue cheese, crumbled (about 1 cup)
  • 2 scallions including green tops, chopped
  • 5 teaspoons vinegar
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Tabasco sauce
  • 8 ribs celery, cut into sticks

STEP BY STEP

  1. Heat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Mix together in a paper bag the garlic powder, pepper, salt and cayenne pepper powder
  3. In a large bowl, toss the thawed wings with the cooking oil
  4. Put into the paper bag and shake until coated – save any excess powder in the bag
  5. Arrange the wings in a single layer on two large baking sheets.
  6. Bake until just done, about 35-45 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile create your dipping sauce: In a medium glass or stainless-steel bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, blue cheese, scallions, and ONLY ONE teaspoon of the vinegar
  8. To coat your cooked wings, in a large bowl, combine the ketchup, the remaining 4 teaspoons vinegar, the Tabasco sauce, and the remaining powder from the bag – ALTERNATE:  Simply use Frank’s Red Hot Cayenne Pepper Sauce
  9. Add the wings and toss to coat.
  10. Serve the wings with the celery sticks and blue-cheese dressing alongside.

MENU SUGGESTION

  • Pair these wings with more finger food. Corn on the cob would go nicely.
  • Roasted potato wedges are a good alternative and can be cooked alongside the wings.
