The Freshman Cook: Chicken Wings!

Nothing says football like chicken wings! We made a few for our football feast party, and we served them with BBQ sauce, Hot Sauce(Medium), Homemade Ranch, and Homemade Blue Cheese. One good thing about serving wings at your football get together?  Everyone loves them!


Fried Chicken Wings

Chicken Wings

Hot Sauce

BBQ Sauce



Put the wings in a deep fryer set at 350 degrees. You

can also bake these in an oven at 400 degrees for 

25-35 minutes if you would rather.

While the wings are frying, cut up the celery and carrots.

 Trim out the celery by cutting off the leaves and the top. 

Slice thick celery down the middle, then slice those slices

in half length wise. 

 It always looks nice if you can make all

the celery pieces as close to the same length as possible.

 Peel the carrots, cut them down the center lengthwise,

then slice into pieces the same length as the celery.


 Time to check on your wings. Check on the temperature 

of the wings. They should be cooked until 165 degrees.

Pull them out and let them drain. 

While they are draining, get your sides all together.

To make your hot sauce a little less hot, melt some butter, 

and add the butter to your hot sauce. Mix together.

Add some BBQ sauce to a bowl, and heat if you want.

Place both sauces, and both dips, along with the

vegetables near your platter of chicken.

 Homemade Ranch Dip


1 cup Mayo

1/2 cup Sour Cream

1 teaspoon Garlic Powder

1 teaspoon Dill Weed

1/4 cup Buttermilk

1 tablespoon Dried Parsley

1 teaspoon Onion Powder

Lets make our Ranch Dip first. We need to let both 

dips sit in the fridge for a few hours before serving them.

Mix together the mayo and the sour cream.

Add the garlic powder, dill weed, buttermilk, parsley,

and onion powder. Mix together until well blended.

Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.

 Blue Cheese Dip

1 1/2 cups Mayo

1 cup Sour Cream

2 teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce

1 teaspoon Dry Mustard

1 teaspoon Black Pepper

1 teaspoon Garlic Powder

6 ounces Blue Cheese, crumbled

Mix all or the ingredients together.

Add the blue cheese. Mix well. 

Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
