Creamy Gorgonzola Dressing:
2/3 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup Gogonzola cheese, crumbled
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced

2 cups vegetable oil
2 pounds chicken wings
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
1/4 cup hot pepper sauce
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 small bunch watercress, washed, trimmed for garnish, optional


1. Prepare Creamy Gorgonzola Dressing: In medium bowl, combine all ingredients until well blended.
2. Prepare Chicken: In deep fryer or large, deep skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat to 375 degrees F, testing with thermometer. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Add chicken to oil and fry, turning occasionally, until golden and crisp, about 10 minutes. Remove wings with tongs and drain on paper towels. After draining, transfer wings to large bowl.
3. In small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add hot pepper sauce and vinegar. Pour mixture over wings and toss to coat well.
4. Arrange wings on serving platter, garnish, if desired, with watercress and serve with Creamy Gorgonzola Dressing.

When preparing the chicken wings, cut them into two pieces at the joint and either discard the tip or save it for making chicken stock. When frying, add chicken wings in small batches to avoid overcrowding.
