Bobby Flay Does it Again: Grilled Chicken Wings with Spicy Chipotle Hot Sauce and Blue Cheese-Yogurt Dipping Sauce







Oh yum. We haven't been impressed with our local wing place (although I want to find their fry recipes...drool), so we decided to try making them ourselves. Since it was our 1st try, we turned to good ol' Bobby Flay. We were very pleased. The dipping sauce was perfect, although I used sour cream. We both could have used more heat also, so I will kick it up some.

Try it. You won't be sorry.


And for those of you with kids, we left out the hot sauce mixture and just let them dip the chicken and veggies in the blue cheese dipping sauce.

Grilled Chicken Wings with Spicy Chipotle Hot Sauce and Blue Cheese-Yogurt Dipping Sauce

46 chicken wings

Vegetable oil

Salt and freshly ground pepper

Chipotle Hot Sauce, recipe follows

Blue Cheese-Yogurt Dip, recipe follows


Heat grill to high. Toss wings in a few tablespoons of oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on the grill in single layers and grill until golden brown on both sides and just cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes per side.


Chipotle Hot Sauce:
1 1/2 cups red wine vinegar

3 tablespoons Dijon mustard

2 to 3 tablespoons chipotle pepper puree (depending on how spicy you like it)

3 tablespoons honey

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Salt and freshly ground pepper

1 stick unsalted butter, cut into pieces

2 tablespoons ancho chile powder


Whisk together the vinegar, Dijon mustard, chipotle puree, honey, and oil in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Melt butter in a large skillet or a large pot on the grates of the grill. Add the hot sauce mixture and bring to a boil. Whisk in the ancho chile powder and season with salt, to taste. Add the wings and cook, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes. Serve with Blue Cheese-Yogurt Dip


Blue Cheese-Yogurt Dip:
1 pint thick Greek yogurt

3/4 cup crumbled domestic blue cheese

2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion

3 tablespoons finely sliced scallions

Salt and freshly ground pepper


Combine all ingredients in a bowl and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Yes, http://pottslife.blogspot.com/. That's my friend Julie. We went to college together and she is one of my all time favorite girl friends, ever. It is definitely a small world. You must be busy since you haven't been posting recipes much lately. Me too!

Hope you are well. :)
