Brother Bru Bru’s Hot Wings with Blue Cheese Dipping Sauce
12 whole chicken wings
1 ounce extra virgin olive oil
½ teaspoon salt*
½ teaspoon pepper
Hot Wing Sauce
¼ cup (4 oz) Brother Bru Bru’s Chipotle Pepper Sauce
2 tablespoons (1 oz) unsalted butter
4 ounces plain (unsweetened, unflavored) Greek style yogurt
1 ounce crumbled blue cheese
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cracked pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut off the tips from the wings and discard. Separate the drumettes and wingettes by cutting through the joint between them. This yields 24 hot wings. Put the wings in a plastic bag or bowl, pour the olive oil and sprinkle the salt and pepper over the wings and mix until coated. Place wings on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 45 minutes, turning once halfway through (after about 20-25 minutes). When the wings are done baking put them under the broiler for about two to three minutes.
To prepare the hot wing sauce, melt the butter and then stir it and add the Brother Bru Bru’s Chipotle Pepper Sauce together in a bowl large enough to hold all of the wings. Prepare the blue cheese dipping sauce by placing the yogurt, crumbled blue cheese, salt, and pepper into a mixing bowl and stirring them together until well blended.
When the wings are cooked, remove them from the oven, place them into the bowl with the hot wing sauce, and toss until the wings are thoroughly coated. Serve wings with dipping sauce and carrots, celery, and/or apple slices. Source: Cynthia Riddle, brobrubru.com
Tips: Want your wings hotter? Replace all or part of the Chipotle Pepper Sauce (hot) with Brother Bru Bru’s African Hot Pepper Sauce (very hot). Want to take the edge off? Mix the Chipotle Pepper Sauce with Brother Bru Bru’s Chili Pepper Sauce (warm), or use just the Chili Pepper Sauce for a tamer version. *Low-sodium diet? Omit the salt and use Brother Bru Bru’s No/Low Sodium Sauces.
