Ingredients

  • Safflower oil, for frying
  • 3 pounds whole chicken wings (about 32), patted dry
  • 2/3 cup hot sauce, such as Frank’s Red Hot
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • Blue cheese dipping sauce, for serving
  • Blue Cheese Dipping Sauce
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 1/3 cups crumbled mild blue cheese
  • Coarse salt
  • Chef notes

    You can't go wrong with this classic version of Buffalo chicken wings. They're a crowd-pleasing dish for any get together, and especially great for a Super Bowl party.

    Martha's chicken wings tip: Buy whole wings, with the tips intact. Besides making a better presentation, the tips give you something to hold onto while eating the wings, and they turn wonderfully crunchy in the oven (for the last bite).

    Preparation

    For the chicken:

    Preheat oven to 225º F. Heat 2 inches oil in a large, deep skillet over medium-high until 375 degree F on a deep- fry thermometer. Fry chicken in batches until golden brown and cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined baking sheet; keep warm in oven. Return oil to 375 degree F between batches.

    In a large bowl, stir together hot sauce and melted butter. Add chicken and toss to coat. Serve wings with dipping sauce.

    For the dipping sauce:

    In a bowl, stir together sour cream, mayonnaise, milk, and blue cheese. Season with salt. Refrigerate, covered, up to 2 days.
