Baked buffalo wings with bleu cheese dipping sauce

No football party would be complete without buffalo wings!

For wings:

What you’ll need:

2 lb chicken drumettes
2 Tbl honey
2 Tbl ketchup
2 Tbl Tabasco sauce
1 Tbl Worcestershire sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with foil. Remove skin from chicken. In a large zipper close baggie mix honey, ketchup, Tabasco and Worcestershire sauce. Add chicken. Seal bag and refrigerate at least 15 minutes but no longer than 24 hours, turning occasionally. Pour chicken coated in marinade onto prepared pan and sprinkle with paprika. Bake uncovered about 30 minutes or until crisp and juice of chicken is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut. Makes about 24 wings.

For dipping sauce:

What you’ll need:

1/3 c cottage cheese
½ tsp white wine vinegar
2 Tbl milk
1 Tbl crumbled bleu cheese
1/8 tsp white pepper (it can be black but I prefer white for this recipe)
1 garlic clove, finely chopped

In a blender or food processor, place cottage cheese, vinegar, milk, half of the blue cheese, the white pepper and garlic. Cover and blend on low speed until smooth and creamy. Spoon into serving dish. Stir in remaining blue cheese. Cover; refrigerate until serving. Makes about ½ cup of dressing.
