Wing Ingredients:

  • 16 chicken wings, about 3 pounds
  • ¼ pound unsalted butter, melted (1 stick)
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 teaspoons Frank’s Hot Sauce, or 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce (see Gr8 Notes below)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

Blue Cheese Dip Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups crumbled gorgonzola or other blue cheese
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • ¾ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt
  • ¾ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Celery sticks and/or other veggies for dipping


  • Turn on your broiler.
  • Line a baking sheet with foil.
  • Cut the wings apart into thirds so that you have a wing and drumette and a wing tip. Discard the wing tips. Lay the wings and drumettes on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Add the cayenne, hot sauce and salt to the melted butter and stir to combine.
  • Brush each wing with the butter mixture.
  • Time to broil the wings. Set the baking sheet about 3 inches from the heat. Broil for about 8 minutes.
  • Flip each wing and brush the other side with the melted butter sauce and broil for about 4 minutes more or until done.
  • Process all the ingredients for the Blue Cheese Dip in a food processor or blender or with an immersion blender and mix until almost smooth.
  • The wings can be enjoyed either warm or at room temperature. Add fresh cut veggies to your tray with the wings and dip and Enjoy!


Gr8 Note:

The amount of hot sauce is up to you. Add more or less based on your taste. This recipe is for a medium spicy wing.

Gr8 Do Ahead Tip:

Make the Dip up to two days ahead of time, cover and refrigerate.
