  1. Slowly melt the butter, hot sauce and vinegar in a medium saucepan, then pour into a large bowl. Mix all the ingredients for the blue cheese dip together with a pinch of salt. Cover and chill until needed.

  2. Trim the end off each chicken wing, then cut each in half through the joint. Tip the wings into a bowl. Add the celery salt (if using), seasoning and enough flour so they’re all evenly coated.

  3. Heat 4 tbsp oil in a large, deep frying pan and add the wings (do this in 2 batches if your pan isn’t big enough). Fry them, stirring frequently, until they are cooked through and browned all over, about 10 mins for each batch. As soon as they are cooked, transfer them to the bowl of butter sauce and stir well. Repeat with the second batch. Serve the wings on a platter with any extra buttery sauce poured over and the blue cheese dip and celery sticks on the side

Bland. Came here for a non mayonnaise based recipe. I would advise people to halve the amount of butter milk as this recipe only makes a milky sauce. A really strong blue cheese is needed also.

Awesome! Easy to make and is truly American tasting! (I'm American, I should know!) my kids love the wings without the hot sauce, served with corn on the cob - fantastic family dinner!

My word! These are much much better than hunger... When i had finished licking my fingers i could do nothing but look for more fingers to lick... i deep fat fried them for a crispier crisp... i will be making these again...

Horribly thin sauce, suggest looking elsewhere.
