This recipe for buffalo wings with blue cheese dip comes from Randy's Wing Bar and they are addictive. To make an authentic buffalo wing you should use Frank’s® RedHot Sauce



  • chicken wings 2kg
  • paprika 1 tbsp
  • cayenne pepper 1 tbsp
  • plain flour 200g
  • salted butter 50g
  • garlic 1 clove, chopped
  • cayenne-based hot sauce such as Frank’s® RedHot Sauce ½ bottle (about 75ml)
  • English mustard ½ tsp
  • celery sticks to serve
  • hard blue cheese (such as stilton) 150g, crumbled
  • soured cream 125ml
  • mayonnaise 125g
  • garlic 2 cloves, crushed
  • lemon juice a squeeze


  • Step 1

    To make the dip, add all the ingredients to a food processor and pulse to combine. If the mixture is too stiff, add a little warm water to make a smooth dipping sauce. Cover and chill.

  • Step 2

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Cut off the chicken wing tips (the very ends of the wings) and discard, then cut the wings in half at the join to make mini drumsticks, and wingettes.

  • Step 3

    Put the paprika, cayenne pepper, a good pinch of salt and pepper and plain flour in a large bowl and toss the wings until they’re well coated.

  • Step 4

    Put the wings on a rack sitting over a baking tray, preferably so they don’t touch each other, and put in the middle of the oven. Cook for 30 minutes.

  • Step 5

    After 20 minutes, while the wings are cooking, put a pan on the hob, on medium-low heat and add the butter. Once it’s melted a little, add the garlic and fry for a minute. Add the hot sauce. The spicier you want your wings, the more hot sauce you should use. Add the english mustard and stir until the sauce warms through and goes silky, then turn the heat down to low.

  • Step 6

    Check the wings after 30 minutes, if they’re not crispy enough, leave in the oven for another 5 minutes. The crispier the better.

  • Step 7

    Once crispy, put the wings into a large bowl and pour on the buffalo sauce, then toss like crazy until the wings are dripping. Serve with the cheese dip and celery sticks.
