  • 12 whole chicken wings
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese salad dressing , plus more for serving
  • enough oil , for cooking


  • Slice 12 chicken wings in half at the joint and cut off wing tips. Stir 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 tsp pepper in a bowl.
  • Whisk 1 egg with 1/2 cup blue cheese salad dressing in another bowl. Working with one wing at a time, toss in flour mixture, then egg mixture and finish by lightly coating in flour once more.
  • Pour enough oil into a heavy large pot to reach a depth of 1/2 in. Heat over medium. Add half of wings and cook until deep golden and cooked through, 4 to 5 min per side. Adjust heat as needed.
  • Remove wings to paper towels. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Serve immediately with more blue cheese dressing on the side.

Kitchen Tip:

To check the temperature of the oil, try this trick: Put a bamboo skewer or wooden chopstick into the oil, making sure it touches the bottom of the pot. If the oil fizzes up gently around the chopstick, it’s ready to go.
