Last week I kicked off this new ongoing project with Lemon Pepper Wings! These wings are such a popular flavour I just had to give you guys my recipe which includes a homemade Lemon Pepper Seasoning.
What wings do you want to see next week? Let me know in the comments 🙂
Buffalo Wings originated in Buffalo, New York. There are no arguments that Buffalo Wings are a solid part of American cuisine. The wings are un-breaded and usually deep fried or baked before being coated in a spicy sauce made of vinegar, cayenne pepper and butter.
I love the wings both deep fried and baked but baked is obviously healthier and also easier in terms of cooking and all the utensils and ingredients used. My recipe is the baked version.
To make these crispy, spicy chicken wings you will need:
Buffalo Wings are traditionally served with a blue cheese or ranch dip. I like to serve mine with a creamy cool ranch dip – it just compliments the buffalo sauce so well! It’s so easy to make and so much better than store bought! The end results are well worth the extra effort. You will be putting this ranch dip on everything! Plus, you get to experiment and adjust all the delicious ingredients to your taste!
You will need:
Put all of the above ingredients into a bowl and whisk until combined. Simply try and adjust to your taste! You can replace the fresh herbs with dry herbs, just bear in mind this does change the flavour. Give both a try to find out your favourite – let me know in the comments!
Lots of recipes use buttermilk too. I tend to leave it out to make the dip less calorific. The butter milk does add extra dairy tang, but trust me the results are so similar. If you are looking to cut your calories just leave it out, you probably wont notice. When I am feeling extra indulgent I simply add a half cup of buttermilk to the recipe.
This homemade Ranch Dip keeps for up to 2 weeks provided you used fresh sour cream and mayo. You can always add a little lemon juice or vinegar to be extra sure. Simply store in an air tight jar in a cold fridge.
Buffalo Wings are traditionally served with a blue cheese or ranch dip and some cut batons of celery, carrot or cucumber! I personally hate celery but I can vouch for cucumber and carrots!
Don’t miss out on the homemade Ranch Dip and ditch store bought for good!
Today, I served my hot wings with a cool ranch dip and cucumber batons! The perfect combination of spicy, cool and refreshing!
