1/2tspcayenne pepper(less if you're worried
about the heat level)
1/2tspdried mustard powder
1/4tsp dried oregano
1/4tspdried ground thyme
4lbschicken wings, thawed
completely if using a frozen bag
2Tbspvegetable or canola oil
CREAMY GORGONZOLA SAUCE:
2 -3ozcrumbled gorgonzola cheese
MAKE DRY RUB AND CHICKEN
1.Preheat oven to 400 F degrees.
Line a large baking sheet with 2 sheets of aluminum foil (or 1 heavy duty
sheet). Top that with an oven safe cooling rack and spray it with
non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
2.Combine all dry rub ingredients
in a small mixing bowl, set aside. In a large mixing bowl, add chicken
wings and vegetable oil. Use a rubber spatula to toss gently to coat.
3.Sprinkle in about half to 2/3
of the dry rub mixture and use your hands to massage it into all of the chicken
wings, coating evenly. Feel free to use all the dry rub, but for a
coating like in the photos, 1/2-2/3 of the mixture does just fine.
4.Add chicken wings to prepared
baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes.
1.To your food processor or
blender, add mayo, buttermilk, sour cream, 1.5 oz of the gorgonzola cheese,
garlic, lemon juice, pepper and salt. Process until smooth.
2.Transfer to serving bowl and
stir in remaining gorgonzola cheese. Cover with plastic wrap and
refrigerate until ready to use.
