  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large frying pan or deep fryer, heat oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Fry wings for approximately 8 minutes. Transfer wings to a paper towel and let drain. Season with salt and white pepper. After the wings have drained, place them in a large mixing bowl.
  3. In a small saucepan, melt butter or margarine. Stir in hot pepper sauce. Pour mixture over chicken wings, toss to coat the wings. Place wings in a baking dish.
  4. Bake 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. While the chicken wings are baking, make the blue cheese dressing: In a medium size mixing bowl, combine mayonnaise, onion, garlic, parsley, sour cream, lemon juice, vinegar and blue cheese. Blend the mixture well. Arrange the baked chicken wings on a serving platter. Serve with blue cheese dressing.

Anyone with any knowledge of cooking, especially if you've ever eaten buffalo wings, would know that a half teaspoon of hot sauce is ridiculous!! The hot sauce is always the main ingredient. It would make more sense if the butter and hot sauce were reversed. I would say you would need close to a half cup of hot sauce. The way true buffalo wings are made is to deep fry them first and then put them in a bowl and slather them with the sauce and serve with the blue cheese dressing. That's it--ask anyone in Buffalo. If a recipe sounds ridiculous, then alter it!

im sitting here cooking these things for the first time and i've been cooking them for like an hour and they are still not done. I am thourughly dissapointed!!!!! Your recipe said 15-20; whats up with that?

The recipe calls for waaaaaay too much of almost everything! After I made this I had enough blue cheese dressing left over to cover at least two large salads! Cut everything in half and you'll do fine. There was also waaaaay too much butter. If you use this much you'll waste at least half. Cut that down as well. Then there's not near enough hot sauce. If you just want buttery chicken wings, I guess the recipe's okay, but if you want buffalo wings - use at least 3, yes I said 3, TABLESPOONS of hot sauce. Outside of all that - it tasted pretty good.

I was disappointed with these. I made them for a party and they didn't go over as well as I hoped. They weren't spicy enough, and seemed to swim in butter. Next time I'd broil them instead of bake, and marinade in the sauce first.

Very good, liked it at all. They are not really spicy though, so it might not be for everyone.

I used this recipe because I thought baking would enhance the crispy/saucy flavor. WRONG! Frying is certainly the way to go--- all the way! The sauce totally lost itself after baking and I'll bet it wouldn't have if I hadn't baked them. But as everyone else has said, the bleu cheese dip is uber yummy!

These are good but the original as per food network is butter hot sauce and red wine vinager.Deep fry to golden brown,drain on paper towels then put sauce in large bowl add wings and toss to coat.

This is pretty good. I altered the recipe tho I used Frank's Red Hot Sauce , which I heated with butter. Do be careful of sodium intake. Frank's is pretty salty and so is salted butter. My lil mistake. The blue cheese dipping for me at least came out awesome. If you don't have a deep fryer like myself or don't want to use a lot of oil. About half a cup in a frying pan high heat. Do not overcrowd your pan it will drop the tem and your wings will be soggy. Basically once you start to see some colour take em out and follow the recipe as is.
