Directions

Special equipment:
a deep-fry thermometer
  1. For the dipping sauce: Whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, blue cheese, buttermilk, chives and garlic in a small bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. For the wings: Fill a large wide pot with about 3 inches of oil. Attach a deep-fry thermometer to the side of the pot and bring to 375 degrees F over medium-high heat.
  3. Meanwhile, toss together the wings with 2 teaspoons salt and a few grinds of pepper in a large bowl. Sprinkle the cornstarch over top and toss to coat thoroughly.
  4. Working in batches, fry the chicken wings until golden and cooked through, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined baking sheet to drain. Return the oil to 375 degrees F between batches.
  5. Whisk the melted butter and sriracha together in a large bowl. Transfer the fried wings to the bowl and toss to coat. Serve with the dipping sauce and celery sticks if using.
