I have been a fan of Blue Cheese Dressing my entire life so, believe me when I say this recipe is amazing. It just doesn’t come this good in a bottle and many online recipes just can’t be trusted. Some bloggers get you in the vicinity of a decent dressing but there always seems to be something missing. Am I right? Well, not here, no sir/mam. I’ve got the best recipe right here and it’s great on salads, used as a dip with veggies or chicken wings.
Smooth or Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing
These days you can buy blue cheese already crumbled and ready to go. If you’re buying it by the brick, however, you’ll have to break it down and crumble it with your hands or slice it with a knife. If you’re going for a chunky recipe, just eye ball the pieces and prep them to your preference and size. If you prefer a creamy dressing, just break down the blue cheese to a size your blender or hand mixer can handle because that’s the only way you’re going to get a creamy Blue Cheese Dressing with out mixing for hours by hand.
Blue Cheese Dressing or Dip
Last week I filmed my version of Buffalo Chicken Wings and I paired that recipe with this Blue Cheese Dressing. The two recipes together are sensational. So good in fact that I bought more wings and ingredients to make the dressing again, yesterday. I used every last bit, of the dressing I filmed, on salads I ate for lunch, all week long. So I highly recommend both of these recipes.
Blue Cheese Dressing Ingredients:
6 – 8 oz Blue Cheese 1 cup Butter Milk 1 cup Sour Cream 1 cup Mayonaise 1/3 cup White Wine Vinegar 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder 1/2 tsp Onion Powder 1 tsp Sugar, maybe more Salt and Pepper to taste
Just mix all of the ingredients together, to make your Blue Cheese Dressing, and be sure to watch the video tutorial.
I can honestly say that these are the best Buffalo Chicken Wings that I have ever made and I would put them against any restaurant’s recipe and feel confident that they’d hold their own. They’re succulent, tender, very juicy with a great texture and the Buffalo sauce is amazing. The best part is that they’re really easy to make, too.
My Buffalo Chicken Wings secret
One of the smartest things you can do for your Buffalo Chicken Wings is add Brining. I show you how to do this in my Grilled Chipotle Chicken Wings recipe and it makes all the difference in the world. The video tutorial in that recipe also shows you how to easily cut the wings into drum and flat portions. I recommend that you take a look at if you’re needing to freshen up on your butchery skills. Plus someone told me that they won a wing competition using my recipe so, it really might be worth your while. And my Wasabi Chicken Wings are to die for, just sayin’!
Brining is just a simple process of adding more flavor to the meat that otherwise wouldn’t be there. I just use a simple salt water brine that keeps the poultry juicy through every bite. I also toss the wings in potato starch and give them a light dusting to add texture to the skin after the wings are fried. You can use corn starch instead, if that’s all you have. My secret ingredient in the sauce is my Blackened Seasoning recipe and it takes this recipe to a whole new level. Also, if dipping is your thing, you should try my Blue Cheese Dressing recipe. I guarantee, it’ll be the best you’ve ever tried.
Buffalo Chicken Wings Ingredients:
12 Wings, cut into drums and flats(24 peices in all)
These Honey Chipotle chicken Wings are, by far, the best wings I have ever had. They are sweet and savory, they are crispy and spicy yet incredibly tender and juicy on the inside. They have best flavor of just about any barbecue sauce and we’ll talk about the secret to that in just a minute. But I definitely think that the grilling definitely takes this recipe to a whole new level. But don’t let that scare you if you don’t have a grill. I think these spicy buffalo style wings would still be absolutely fantastic fried in oil or baked in the oven.
Honey Chipotle Chicken Wings Sauce
This Chicken Wing Sauce is phenomenal. I mean it. I’t fantastic. My secret for this recipe is definitely in the sauce. I use Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce to start, then I add a couple of Chipotle peppers in Adobo Sauce and a fresh clove of Garlic but it doesn’t end there. Since it’s got that pepper spice I balance it out with Tequila and Lime. Now, of course, the Tequila is optional but the lime is definitely essential because it adds that Mexican style flavor everyone loves in their Mexican food. But if you’re not shy, I highly recommend following this recipe to a “T” and add that Tequila. It takes this Honey Chipotle Chicken Wing Sauce to whole new level.
