 20160411 Broiled Buffalo Wings with Blue Cheese Dip


Broiled Buffalo Wings


    • 2 pounds chicken wings, split at the joint
    • 1/4 cup cayenne pepper sauce, preferably Frank's Red Hot, plus more for serving
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    • 3 tablespoons low-sodium chicken broth
    • 1 recipe Blue Cheese Dip (recipe follows)



  1. Preheat broiler.

  2. Place the wings in a large pot and fill the pot with water to cover by about 2 inches. Bring to a boil, then continue to boil for 10 minutes. Drain.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the cayenne pepper sauce, lemon juice, and broth. Reserve.
  4. Transfer the wings to a broiler pan and broil 5 to 6 inches from the flame, until the skin begins to blister and brown, 5 to 6 minutes. Turn the wings over and broil 4 to 5 minutes more.
  5. Transfer the wings to a baking sheet, drizzle with the reserved sauce, and toss well to coat. Place the baking sheet under the broiler for 1 minutes to heat the wings and the sauce together.
  6. Serve with extra hot sauce on the side, and the blue cheese dip.


Blue Cheese Dip


    • 1/4 cup plain Greek-style nonfat yogurt
    • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
    • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
    • 1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese (1 1/2 ounces)



  1. In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, mayonnaise, vinegar, and blue cheese.

  2. Mash any very large chunks of blue cheese with the back of a spoon to integrate it into the dip.
