For this week's Wing Wednesday, I decided to grill the wings instead of baking or frying. These wings definitely picked up the char-grilled taste. While the wings were grilling, I mixed up the sauce to toss them in as soon as they came off the grill and were piping hot. The addition of blue cheese crumbles and celery leaves definitely made these wings "supreme." The crumbles melted onto the hot wings...yum! I also added about a 1/2 teaspoon of chopped chives to the blue cheese dressing.
2 - 3 pounds chicken wings, separated and tips removed
salt and black pepper
For the sauce:
6 T. unsalted butter, melted
1/2 t. celery salt
3/4 cup of your favorite wing sauce
Whisk together all ingredients and set aside.
blue cheese crumbles
blue cheese dressing
Preheat gas grill or prepare charcoal grill for grilling. Place chicken wings on the grill and let cook on medium high heat for 8 - 10 minutes.
Turn wings over and allow to cook for another 8 - 10 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees..
When wings are done, place in a large bowl and slowly pour the sauce over the wings. Toss to completely coat the wings. Place on a serving platter and top with the blue cheese crumbles and celery leaves.
Serve with celery sticks and blue cheese (or ranch) dressing on the side.
