When there is football on tv, there are chicken wings either! Game night Buffalo wings are oven grilled wings! We season chicken first with olive oil and then we grill them in the oven until crispy! We still need to test these wings in our airfryer, but this will be soon coming on our blog as well! Whenever I am in a restaurant, I always want to try chicken wings! I have tried many, and many didn’t came thru my test! Most Buffalo wings tasted fat, vinegar was dominating and not a good taste!
Also I have had wings from the famous restaurants like Wings stop and Buffalo wild wings. Buffalo wild wings have their own great desert heat seasoning. With that, they are one of the best in America. I am still missing a great dip sauce with their wings! There is one restaurant who is the best with wings! That is the Cheesecake Factory. Their chicken wings never taste fat! Very good seasoned and served with blue cheese sauce. That’s the type of chicken wings I am going for!
Cleaning chicken wings
Creamy blue cheese dip
Before preparing chicken wings, it is important to clean and remove extra fat. What I’ll do is to rinse all chicken wings in a bowl of water. Then I fill the bowl with water and leave the chicken wings in there with 2 tsp of vinegar or lemon juice. Then rinse it off again and dry each wings with kitchen towel. When all wings are dry, you might see hair! Some people don’t care, but we do care! So we check every wing and burn the hair off! These wings are ready for seasoning!
There will be no Buffalo wings with a good and creamy blue cheese dip! Besided dipping wings, you can also dip vegetables into blue cheese dip. For this recipe, I am using a mild blue cheese type. Roquefort is very sharp. When you like your wings extra spicy, you can use this type of blue cheese. My favorite is St. Agur. This type of blue cheese is from France and is creamy. Blue cheese can be pricy when you deal with import cheese. I like to have it fresh, so I will always by blue cheese in a cheese shop.
When you don’t know what type of blue cheese you can use for this recipe, please don’t hesistate to ask. Our catering works alot with cheeses in general. A good blue cheese dip starts with the right type of blue cheese. Another ingredient we never use is sour cream. For this we use Crème fraîche. This product is neutral and doesn’t come with artificial flavors. Crème fraîche makes our blue cheese dip very creamy!
Serving game night Buffalo wings
Many Buffalo wings recipes, you see Buffalo sauce cooked with a lot of butter! Sometimes 2 sticks of butter on a small amount of Buffalo sauce! We use less butter for our recipe and made it functional. We sautéed on low fire first sambal (which is hotsauce in a paste form). This gives extra pepper aromas to the Buffalo sauce. When the sauce is ready, toss the wings into the Buffalo sauce and they are ready to serve on any game night or party
