These chicken wings take the classic appetizer to a new level with a marinade that keeps them moist and tender. These wings are also full of flavor.

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes


  • 4 pounds chicken wings (about 24)
  • Marinade:
  • 1 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Tabasco (optional)
  • Blue Cheese Dipping Sauce:
  • 1 cup blue cheese, crumbled
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons milk (about)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste


Combine marinade ingredients together and mix well. Place chicken wings in a large resealable bag. Pour marinade over top. Turn to coat and refrigerate for 2 to 6 hours.

For blue cheese sauce, combine blue cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, garlic and Worcestershire cause in a bowl. Stir until smooth. Add enough milk to give the sauce the consistency of pancake batter. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Preheat grill. Remove wings from marinade and reserve marinade. Place wings on hot grill over a low fire. Grill until done (about 20 minutes), brushing with reserved marinade halfway through the cooking time. Serve with blue cheese sauce and celery sticks.

Very Best Buffalo Wings were great, Member mdezarraga

This is a very good recipe ! I did not make the blue cheese sauce, however the wings recipe was great. I made it without the red pepper flakes ( I didn't have) and without the tabasco. I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. I marinated about 2 hours. They were really good. I left them on the grill a little longer so that they would be a little crispy. I got great reviews from all those at my super bowl get together.
