Buffalo Wings

Cook these classic Buffalo wings in an air fryer or on the stove, then toss them in a buttery hot sauce and serve with creamy blue cheese sauce.


Blue Cheese Dressing
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons whole buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)
  • 4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled (about 1 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped chives
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
Buffalo Wings
  • Vegetable oil
  • 10 small (1 pound total) chicken drumettes, patted dry
  • 10 small (13 ounces total) chicken wing flats (wingettes), patted dry
  • 1/2 cup Buffalo-style hot sauce (such as Frank’s RedHot)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
Additional ingredients
  • Celery sticks


Prepare the Blue Cheese Dressing:
  1. Stir together sour cream, mayonnaise, buttermilk, and lemon juice in a medium bowl; fold in blue cheese, chives and salt. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

Prepare the Buffalo Wings:
  1. See note above to prepare these wings in an air fryer. To fry them on the stove, place a wire rack over a rimmed baking sheet. Pour vegetable oil in a large Dutch oven to a depth of 2 inches; heat oil to 375°F over medium. Fry chicken drumettes and wing flats in 2 batches until golden brown and until a thermometer inserted into thickest portion of chicken registers at least 165°F, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to wire rack.
  2. While chicken cooks, bring hot sauce and butter to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium, whisking occasionally. Simmer, whisking occasionally, until sauce is slightly thickened and coats the back of a spoon, about 1 minute. Cover and set aside.
  3. Place Buffalo Wings and sauce in a large bowl; toss until wings are evenly coated. Transfer to a platter, and serve with Blue Cheese Dressing and celery sticks.
