with Blue Cheese or Ranch Dip

Tangy with just the right kick of spice, these spicy chicken wings will be a hit with your family or party guests. Serve with a side of blue cheese or ranch dip.

Spicy Chicken Wings

What you need:

2 lbs chicken wings (will serve 3-4 people)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 – 1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons Tabasco sauce
2-3 cloves garlic finely minced (about 1 teaspoon)

In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients except chicken wings.  Add in chicken wings, mix thoroughly then transfer to a Ziploc bag and marinate in refrigerator for at least an hour or overnight.  Remove from refrigerator and preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a baking tray with non-stick cooking spray and spread the chicken wings in a single layer on the baking tray. Cook uncovered for 20 minutes. Turn the wings over and bake for another 20 minutes. Brown under the broiler for a couple of minutes, if desired.

What you need:

1 1/4 ounces of your favorite blue cheese (1 container crumbled or small wedge that you crumble yourself)
8 ounce container of organic sour cream
1/4 pound of cream cheese (1/2 bar)
1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Let the cream cheese soften to room temperature. Mix together all ingredients, cover bowl in plastic wrap then refrigerate for about an hour. Take dip out of the refrigerator about 30 minutes before you serve it. Add a sprinkle of lemon zest to garnish. Serve at room temperature.

Ranch Dip

If you don’t like blue cheese, you can make a ranch dip.

What you need:

1 packet of Hidden Valley Ranch original ranch dip mix
16oz container of organic sour cream.

Mix these together and chill until you’re ready to serve. That’s it!
