A miniature version of Southern fried chicken, these breaded wings bake up crunchy and golden. Along with the blue cheese dip, add some raw celery or carrot sticks to round out this casual meal.

  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 lbs chicken wing
  • 2/3 cups buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Blue cheese dip:
  • 1 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 green onion thinly sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Method

Remove tips from wings and reserve for stock if desired; separate at joint. In glass baking dish, whisk buttermilk, egg, salt and hot sauce; add wings, tossing to coat. Cover; refrigerate for 4 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Blue Cheese Dip: In bowl, mash blue cheese with buttermilk until fairly smooth. Stir in green onion and pepper. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

In large resealable bag, shake together cornmeal, flour, chili powder and cumin. Remove wings from buttermilk mixture, letting any excess drip off. In batches, shake in cornmeal mixture to coat; shake off any excess. Arrange on rack on foil-lined rimmed baking sheet.

Roast in 400°F (200°C) oven, turning once, until crisp and juices run clear when wings are pierced, about 45 minutes. Serve with dip.
