- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup buttermilk
- 1 (1-oz) pkg ranch dressing and seasoning mix
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- 4 oz Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
- 3 lbs chicken wings
- 1/4 cup rice flour
- 1/2 cup cayenne pepper hot sauce, room temperature
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
To prepare the dipping sauce, combine the sour cream, mayonnaise, buttermilk, ranch dressing mix, and lemon juice in a small mixing bowl. Fold in the Gorgonzola and refrigerate until ready to serve.
To prepare the wings, heat up oil in a deep fryer or a Dutch oven to 375°F.
In a large mixing bowl, toss the wings with the rice flour until coated.
In 2 batches, fry the wings in the preheated oil for 10–12 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted in the wing reaches 165°F. Transfer them onto a baking sheet lined with paper towels to sop up any excess oil.
While the wings are frying, whisk together the hot sauce and butter in a mixing bowl large enough to toss the wings in.
Once both batches are complete, put the wings into the mixing bowl with the hot sauce mixture. Toss until coated and serve with the prepared dipping sauce.
