Buffie Wings & Bleu Cheese Dip

Blue Cheese Dressing
2 tablespoons minced yellow onion
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
1/4 cup minced parsley
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1/4 to 1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
Salt to taste
Black pepper to taste
Ground hot red pepper (cayenne) to taste

Chicken Wings
20 to 25 chicken wings

Vegetable oil for deep frying
1/4 CUP (1/2 stick) butter or margarine
1/2 to 1 (2-ounce) bottle Louisiana hot sauce
12 to 18 celery sticks

1. DRESSING: Mix all ingredients in medium bowl, cover, and chill 1 hour or longer.
2. CHICKEN WINGS: Halve wings at "elbow" and discard tips. Do not dredge, crumb, or batter wings. Deep-fry in 2 1/2 to 3 inches 375 degrees F. vegetable oil in a saute pan or deep fat fryer until crisp and golden brown on all sides-8 to 10 minutes. Drain well on paper towels.
3. Melt butter in small saucepan and blend in 1/2 to 1 bottle hot sauce, depending on how "hot" you like things.
4. Place chicken wings in large bowl; pour hot butter sauce over wings and mix well.
5. Arrange wings on deep platter and serve warm with celery sticks and Blue Cheese Dressing for dipping. Don't forget to put out plenty of napkins-Buffalo Chicken Wings are deliciously messy!
