Buffalo-Style Chicken Wings Recipe

Buffallo-Style Chicken Wings

Buffalo-Style Chicken Wings Recipe
Recipe Type: PoultryAppetizersBlue CheeseChicken Wings
Cuisine: Mid-Atlantic (Buffalo, NY)
Yields: 4 to 6 servings
Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 15 min

Blue Cheese Dressing (see recipe below)
24 (about 4 pounds) chicken wings
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 cups vegetable oil
4 teaspoons butter
2 to 5 tablespoons hot pepper sauce or to taste
1 tablespoon white vinegar
Celery sticks

Make Blue Cheese Dressing first and refrigerate at least 1 hour before using.
Cut off the tip of each chicken wing and discard it. Cut the wing in half (cutting at the joint) to make two pieces. Wash and dry the chicken wings (they need to be very dry to be fried crisp). Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
In a deep fryer or large pot, add vegetable oil and heat to 400 degrees F. or until the oil starts to pop and sizzle. (Note: The oil should be able to cover the wings and still maintain the same temperature.) If using an electric fryer, set the temperature to 425 degrees F.
Add half of the chicken wings and cook 10 to 15 minutes or until golden and crisp, stirring occasionally. When done, remove from the hot oil and drain on paper towels (do not pile the wings in a bowl, because the fat will cool and congeal before it runs off). Repeat with remaining chicken wings.
