Yield: 20 - 25 chicken 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°. 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 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 with Bleu Cheese Dressing and celery sticks.
For Bleu Cheese Dressing:
Combine the mayonnaise, vinegar, dry mustard, pepper and salt in a large bowl and beat until well blended. Mix in the bleu 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.
Fun Fact: Buffalo wings are named after the culinary dish from, Buffalo, New York. The local residents of Buffalo generally refer to them as “wings” or “chicken wings” rather than “Buffalo wings.” Classic Buffalo-style chicken wing sauce is composed of a vinegar-based cayenne pepper hot sauce and butter. Buffalo wings are traditionally served with celery sticks and blue cheese dressing.
