Simple, delicious hot wings with cool blue cheese dip and celery.



Canola oil, for frying
chicken wing parts (12 wings separated into 2 pieces)
1 12-oz
bottle cayenne hot pepper sauce, such as Frank's
stick butter
Several dashes Worcestershire sauce
Several dashes hot sauce, such as Tabasco
Blue cheese dip, for serving
Celery sticks, for serving


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 325ºF. Heat 3 inches of canola oil in a heavy pot to 375ºF.

Step 2

Add half the chicken wing parts to the oil and fry them until they’re golden brown and fully cooked, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels. Repeat with the other half of the wing parts. In a saucepan, heat the cayenne sauce and butter over medium-low heat. Add the Worcestershire and hot sauce. Let it bubble up, and then turn off the heat. Place the wings in an ovenproof dish and pour the hot sauce over the top. Toss to coat, and then bake in the oven for 15 minutes. 

Step 3

Serve with blue cheese dip, celery sticks… and your favorite cold, fizzy beverage.
