Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Tuck under wing tips. Place chicken wings in a large resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. In a small dish, combine garlic salt, cayenne pepper, black pepper and oregano. Sprinkle over chicken wings; seal bag. Shake bag to coat wings with seasonings. If desired, chill in the refrigerator for 6 to 24 hours.

  • For a charcoal grill, arrange medium-hot coals around a drip pan. Test for medium heat above the pan. Place chicken wings on grill rack over drip pan. Cover; grill for 20 to 25 minutes or till chicken is no longer pink, turning once. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce to medium. Adjust for indirect cooking. Grill chicken as above.)

  • To serve, transfer to a serving bowl or platter with carrot and celery sticks and use Blue Cheese Dressing as a dipping sauce. Makes 24 wings (12 appetizer or 6 main-dish servings).

Blue Cheese Dressing

In a small bowl combine 1 cup mayonnaise, 1 cup crumbled blue cheese (4 ounces), 2/3 cup evaporated milk, 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt and 1/4 teaspoon celery seeds. Cover and chill for up to 1 week. Makes about 2 1/4 cups.
