12 chicken wings (about 2 pounds)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
3 tablespoons bottled hot pepper sauce
2 teaspoons paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Celery sticks (optional)
Blue Cheese Dip
1/2 cup dairy sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced
Cut off and discard tips of chicken wings. Cut wings at joints to form 24 pieces. Place chicken wing pieces in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish.
For marinade, stir together melted butter, hot pepper sauce, paprika, salt, and cayenne pepper. Pour over chicken wings; seal bag. Marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes. Drain; discard marinade.
Place the chicken wing pieces on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat about 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Turn chicken wings. Broil for 10 to 15 minutes more or until chicken is tender and no longer pink. Serve with Blue CheeseDip and, if desired, celery sticks. Makes 12 appetizer servings.
