buffalo chicken & blue cheese

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
after testing several ways, i think i've come up with a good way to make restaurant style buffalo chicken at home. all i need to do now is find a good blue cheese dipping sauce.

im not really looking for a recipie as i want to keep it quick and easy. i will advise you that my way probably isn't the best for you, as far as health goes... but it hits the tongue just right. i just use Tyson Popcorn Chicken which you'll find in your grocer's freezer and Frank's RedHot Buffalo Wing Sauce.

i've bought a few different blue cheese dressings at the store and all of them seem to taste like a combo of chalk, plastic, and wax crayons chilled! price really isn't an issue... just something already prepared and tasty to ease my fly by night cravings! Help... my chicken awaits!

Ya know there are several out there. Some thin some thick and many in between. I have been a fan of a certain "Southern Born" wing joint since I first visited Florida in '84. They had used Naturally fresh product and was always my favorite for home use too. The reason being is that it has a better shelf life than most home-made products. I have several versions of a bleu cheese dressing so if you are intent on making your own try this one.

3 cups Hellmans Mayo
2 cups Buttermilk
1 cup Sour cream
1 tbsp fresh ground pepper
1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 tbsp pureed poached garlic cloves
2 tsp L&P Worcestershire
2 tbsp pureed poached onion
1 tsp Tobassco sauce
1 1/2 cups crumbled bleu cheese. (prefferably a good brand but not doesn't need to be Maytag quality).

Combine all ingredients except for bleu cheese in an appropriate size mixing bowl until smooth using a wire whip. Scrape sides of bowl frequently too. After mixture is smooth add bleu cheese and mix in with rubber spatchula. Be careful to not break up all the bleu cheese. Chunky is good.

Pour into any sealable storage container and refrigerate until needed. Shelf-life is approximately 5 days or the expiration date of the buttermilk.

Hope this helps.

easy sauce to go with buffalo sandwiches

Per your request. I have used this numerous times with Hot Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches. I usually have these ingredients in the fridge. . .I will also add a big piece of romaine lettuce and a nice cut of red onion.
Hope you like this!

2 cups sour cream
4 scallions, thinly sliced
1/2 pound blue cheese, crumbled

When you are talking Blue cheese sauce, or dressing, don't even look for something in the chilled section of your super! It's so easy to make enough for one binge just like "fancy" said, A really tasty Blue, and some sour cream sets you up for wing heaven!
Pig out!

Well, actually, Marie's brand blue cheese dressing is not bad at all.

However, if you're a stickler, you could make the blue cheese dressing from Cook's Illustrated which we like a lot:

2-1/2 oz blue cheese
3 Tbsp buttermilk
3 Tbsp sour cream
2 Tbsp mayonnaise
2 tsp white wine vinegar
1/4 tsp sugar
2 cloves garlic
salt and pepper to taste

Mince garlic cloves in mini-Cusinart. Add two-thirds blue cheese, other ingredients, process to creamy paste. Add balance of blue cheese, pulse to just combine, leaving cheese in small lumps.

Great for salads- should work just fine with Buffalo Wings!
