Ingredients

5 pounds chicken wings

1/2 gallon peanut or vegetable oil

1 Large bottle red pepper sauce

Gorgonzola Cilantro Dressing:

1 cup mayonnaise

1 cup sour cream

6 ounces Gorgonzola cheese, cut and crumbled -- (6 to 8)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, finely chopped -- (1 to 2)

6 carrots, peeled and cut for dipping

6 stalks celery, cleaned and cut for dipping

Directions

Cut chicken wings at the joint, discarding the outermost bony portion of the wing. Rinse the wings, let dry and set aside. Place oil in a large stockpot and place on stovetop over a medium-high heat. Be very careful when deep frying in the kitchen, and pay careful attention to how the oil looks. If the oil is smoking when there is nothing in the pot then the oil has gotten too hot, turn off the heat immediately and cover the pot if you can. Let the oil cool and start over again. Never place anything in heated oil that is dripping wet unless it is a batter.

Place dried chicken wings in heated oil in batches so that the oil temperature stays constant. Cook the wings until they are golden brown and the meat starts to pull away from the bones. Remove the wings from the hot oil with a slotted spoon into a mixing bowl. Add enough red pepper sauce to evenly coat the wings, and place wings in broiler pan. Crisp wings under broiler quickly and serve with Gorgonzola Cilantro dressing.

Gorgonzola Cilantro Dressing:
In a mixing bowl place mayonnaise, sour cream, Gorgonzola cheese, salt and cilantro. Let sit for at least 1 hour before serving so that the flavors meld together. Serve with carrots and celery along with the spicy chicken wings.

"I followed the recipe exactly-once for Christmas Day, the next time for New year's Eve. Both times it was a big hit, with people asking how I made it. I added some frozen fruit icecubes & I made sure the Golden Circle fruit juice packs & soft drink bottles were in the freezer for a while before I made them, so that they were-not frozen of course-but icy cold. There were a few slivers of ice in the fruit juice actually. Very easy to make, liked by just about everyone. Good recipe to have." - sherri3802
