Here is a great dish for the weekend! We all love chicken wings right?
There is a restaurant here in town that serves several kinds of chicken wings. One of my favorites, is the Dirty Blue. Oh boy, oh boy, are they good! The wings are coated in a spicy wing sauce with a hint of blue cheese flavor. I just love them and decided to make my own sauce.
Yes!!! I did it. I like mine way better. I don’t normally like the bottled wing sauces…too vinegary for me. But it works for these wings. Not only are they so good, they are super simple. Now, if you are not a fan of blue cheese…….really? Hahaha, you could always substitute it with Ranch dressing. Those are so good too. Or, why not use Ranch dressing and throw in some blue cheese.
Ok, let’s get started.
Spicy Blue Cheese or Ranch Wings
enough sauce for 24-30 wings
wings (flats and drummets)
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles **see below for Ranch dressing version
4 Tblsp milk
1/2 cup wing sauce
2 Tblsp butter, melted
Heat oven to 425. Place wings on a foil lined baking sheet. Bake chicken wings until they are thoroughly cooked, about 45 minutes.
In the mean time, make the sauce. In a food processor or blender, mix together the wing sauce, blue cheese and milk. Blend until smooth. Pour into a sauce pan with the butter, over medium heat. Once heated through, turn heat down.
When wings are cooked, dump them into a bowl or deep dish and pour the sauce over them. Give them a toss to coat completely. Serve immediately.
**Ranch Dressing version:
Heat 1 cup of Ranch dressing in a sauce pan with 1/2 cup wing sauce and 2 Tblsp. butter. (no milk necessary)
