Spicy BBQ Chicken Wings
- 4 tablespoons minced onion
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 pound chicken wings
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar
- ½ cup sour cream
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup blue cheese, crumbled
- ½ teaspoon ground white pepper
- ½ cup butter
- ½ teaspoon hot pepper sauce
- ⅓ cup chopped fresh parsley
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- Before you starting preparing the wings, preheat the oven to 350ºF or 175ºC.
- Heat the oil in a skillet and drop the wings all at once in the oil. Allow them to fry for 5-8 minutes till they turn light golden.
- Once done, remove them on an absorbent paper and allow the oil to drain out.
- Season the wings with salt and pepper, as they do not have a taste of their own.
- Once most of the oil gets drained out, put the wings in a baking dish. Baked chicken wings are a great alternative for outdoor grilled chicken wings.
- Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan and add hot pepper.
- Pour this mixture over chicken wings and set them in the oven to bake for the next 15-20 minutes.
- As the chicken is baking, make your dressings. In a large mixing bowl, mix mayonnaise, onion, garlic, parsley, sour cream, lemon juice, vinegar and blue cheese. Use a blender to mix all of these ingredients well.
- Once your wings are baked, remove them on a serving dish and pour dressing on top and relish each bite indulgently!
