  • Summary

    The secret to impossibly crisp skin and juicy meat? Coating the wings in cornstarch and frying twice, first at a low temperature and again at a high temperature. You can make the accompanying blue cheese dipping sauce a day in advance.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup sour cream
    • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
    • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • 3 ounces Danish blue cheese, crumbled (about 1/2 cup)
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
    • Corn or other vegetable oil, for frying
    • 1/4 cup cornstarch
    • 3 pounds whole chicken wings, room temperature, patted dry
    • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 2 garlic cloves, smashed and peeled
    • Pinch cayenne pepper
    • 3/4 cup Frank's RedHot sauce
    • Carrots and celery sticks, for serving
