Serving Size: 8     Preparation Tim: 0:35

Categories: Appetizer


  ¾           cup bleu cheese, crumbled

  ½           cup mayonnaise

  ½           cup sour cream

  1            tablespoon milk

  ½           teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

  1 ¾       teaspoons salt

  ½           teaspoon black pepper -- freshly ground

  16         each chicken wings

  8            tablespoons unsalted butter

  1            teaspoon cayenne pepper

  1            teaspoon Tabasco sauce


Make the dipping sauce: Place the blue cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, milk, Worcestershire sauce, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and black pepper in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Process until almost smooth; set aside. Meanwhile, preheat the broiler. Cut the chicken wings in thirds, cutting between the bones. Discard the wing tips. Lay the chicken pieces in a baking pan, and set aside.


Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the cayenne pepper, Tabasco, and 1 teaspoon salt; stir to combine. Brush onto the pieces of reserved chicken pieces. Place the chicken about 3 inches below the broiler, and broil until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Turn the chicken pieces over; brush with butter mixture, and return to the broiler until golden brown, about 5 minutes more. Remove from the broiler, and transfer to a serving platter. Serve the chicken hot or at room temperature with the dipping sauce.
