Drums with Blue Cheese Dressing
This is my
version of the famed buffalo wing recipe – hot and spicy with a cooling, tasty
blue cheese dressing. Here I use drumsticks and roast them instead of frying,
and I swear they are better, as well as being more healthy!
12 Tegel Chicken Drumsticks
2 teaspoons salt
2-3 tablespoons rice bran
3 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon hot chilli
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
Juice from one lemon
Blue Cheese Dressing
100g blue cheese
3 tablespoons sour cream
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Salt and pepper
Pre-heat oven to 230 C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Make deep cuts in the flesh
of each drumstick and lay out on lined baking tray. Sprinkle liberally with
salt and rice bran oil.
Cook for 30-45 minutes or until crispy and cooked through.
While the chicken cooks,
make the sauces.
Chilli sauce: Melt the butter and whisk in the hot chilli sauce,
cayenne pepper and lemon juice. Adjust to your taste. It should have plenty of
heat in it, and the blue cheese dressing will mellow it out somewhat! Set
Blue cheese dressing: Make the blue cheese dressing by whipping all the
ingredients to a chunky sauce. Taste and add salt and pepper to season. Set
Once the drumsticks are
cooked, put them in a big bowl, pour over the chilli sauce and toss until well coated.
Serve with sticks of celery
and carrot and the blue cheese dressing.
