  • 2.2 lbs chicken wings


  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder

  • ½ cup unsalted butter

The Blue Cheese Sauce:

  • 5 oz blue cheese
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 1 clove of garlic crushed
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice


  • Separate your wings into flats and drumettes using a sharp knife.
  • Dry the wings with a paper towel, the dryer you get them the crispier the skin will be, and place in a bowl.
  • Mix the seasoning ingredients together, add to the bowl and toss to coat the wings.
  • Get your BBQ up to temp of around 450°F plus for air frying.

  • Take the wings off the heat and place in a bowl. Add the hot sauce and stir gently to coat the wings.
