Total Time: 45 minutes • Serves: 8
Creamy Blue Cheese Dip
1 small lemon
1/4 cup Schnucks real mayonnaise
1/4 cup Schnucks sour cream
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
Grilled Buffalo Chicken Wings
3 pounds whole chicken wings
Schnucks nonstick cooking spray
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 tablespoons Schnucks unsalted butter (1/2 stick)
3/4 cup Frank’s® RedHot® cayenne pepper sauce
2 tablespoons Schnucks pure honey
1. Prepare Creamy Blue Cheese Dip: From lemon, squeeze 1 tablespoon juice. In small bowl, stir mayonnaise, sour cream and lemon juice until blended. Stir in blue cheese until well combined. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Makes about 1 cup.
2. Prepare Grilled Buffalo Chicken Wings: Prepare outdoor grill for direct grilling over medium heat. Remove wing tips from chicken wings, then cut each wing in half at joint. Thoroughly spray wings with cooking spray; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place wings on hot grill rack; cook 25 to 30 minutes or until wings lose their pink color throughout and internal temperature reaches 165°F, turning every 5 minutes. If wings begin to burn, transfer to cooler part of grill. Transfer wings to large bowl.
3. Meanwhile, in 2- to 3-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in cayenne pepper sauce and honey until well blended; heat 4 to 5 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Makes about 1 cup.
4. Pour pepper sauce mixture over wings and toss until well coated. Serve wings with Creamy Blue Cheese Dip.
