A bar-room staple, these fiery little chicken wings are basted in a hot-pepper sauce, then cooled with tangy blue cheese dip.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1 pound chicken wings
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 4 tablespoons minced onion
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar
- 1/2 cup blue cheese, crumbled
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a large frying pan or deep fryer, heat oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Fry wings for approximately 8 minutes. Transfer wings to a paper towel and let drain. Season with salt and white pepper. After the wings have drained, place them in a large mixing bowl.
In a small saucepan, melt butter or margarine. Stir in hot pepper sauce. Pour mixture over chicken wings, toss to coat the wings. Place wings in a baking dish.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes.
While the chicken wings are baking, make the blue cheese dressing: In a medium size mixing bowl, combine mayonnaise, onion, garlic, parsley, sour cream, lemon juice, vinegar and blue cheese. Blend the mixture well. Arrange the baked chicken wings on a serving platter. Serve with blue cheese dressing.
