Here is our Chef Stuart O'Keefe's top recipe for the perfect tasty chicken wings to munch down while celebrating International Chicken Wing Day. 

Irish chicken wings recipe

Ingredients:

  • 4 ounces crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh black pepper
  • 1 cup Franks Hot sauce (no substitutions)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh back pepper
  • 2 quarts vegetable oil
  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • 40 chicken wings
  • 6 celery stalks, topped, tailed halved and cut lengthwise

Method:

1. Mix all first 5 ingredients in a bowl, set aside in the fridge until ready to serve.

2. Preheat oven to 200°F. Take wings out of the fridge for at least 45 minutes (this will make sure they cook evenly and more crisp)

3. Place hot sauce, butter, salt, pepper in a saucepan and keep over a very low heat until ready to toss with the wings.

4. Pour oil into a heavy-based saucepan to about 2-3 inches up the sides. Place a deep-fry thermometer to the pan and heat oil until it reaches 370 - 375°F. (if you don’t have a thermometer, buy one)

5. Place cornstarch in a bowl, toss wings in cornstarch and fry in small batches, about 7 -9 per batch. Fry for about 10 minutes. Place on a tray fitted with a wire rack and place in oven to keep warm. Repeat until all wings are cooked.

6. In a large bowl, toss wings in batches of 10 until all coated. Serve with celery sticks and dressing.
