      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      If you are using a Thermomix® TM6 measuring cup with your Thermomix® TM5:
      For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.

Recipe's preparation

    Blue Cheese Sauce
  1. This can be prepared up to 2 days before use. 

  2. Put butterfly into bowl.  Add all Blue Cheese Sauce ingredients and whisk sp4/15 secs.

  3. Store in the fridge in a sterlised air tight container/jar until cooled. Clean and dry bowl.

  4. Chicken
  5. Preheat oven to 220 degrees.  Cover a baking tray with baking paper and a put a wire rack over the top. Set aside.

  6. In the large heavy based pan/pot add oil approx 5cm deep. Heat to approx 190 degrees.

  7. If using wings break into nibbles.  Pat down nibbles with absorbant paper. 

  8. Season nibbles with salt and pepper. In batches cover with conflour and deep fry until golden. 

  9. Place cooked nibbles on the wire rack prepared earlier and place in the oven. The nibbles will continue to brown in the oven.

  10. Continue until all nibbles are cooked.

  11. Glaze
  12. This can be made before or whilst frying nibbles. The glaze needs to be warm so I would leave it until closer to the end of the frying of the nibbles.

  13. Add butter to bowl and melt 2mins/50degrees/sp2.

  14. Add the rest of the glaze ingredients and heat 3mins/60degrees/sp1.

  15. Leave in bowl until ready to use.  If glaze has cooled reheat 1min/60degrees/sp1.

  16. Assemble
  17. Put chicken wings into a large bowl or thermoserver and drizzle glaze over chicken.  Toss nibbles in the glaze to evenly coat.

  18. Serve with blue cheese sauce to dip.

Chicken nibbles are chicken wings that have been separated.  Tips have been removed, drumettes and flats are separated.  This can easily be done with a cleaver, poultry scissors or a large sharp knife.

As I made these for my family I used sweet chilli sauce and a pinch of cayenne pepper. If you want very spicy buffalo wings use hot sauce instead of sweet chilli and use more cayenne pepper. 

Sticks of celery go nicely with these buffalo wings.

This recipe can be easily maqde in a TM31 or TM5.

    Thank you for sharing this recipe - it was a real hit!

    I did make a couple of little changes though with mine - as I didn't want to deep fry my wings.

    The first thing that I did differently was to steam the wingettes and drumettes for 15 minutes in the varoma and then let them cool in the fridge. Then I marinated the wings in half of the sauce for 20 minutes before putting them on a foil lined tray, and baking on the top shelf of the oven for 12 minutes per side at 200*. This made them deliciously crispy!!! I tossed in the remaining sauce (not the marinade!) before serving.

    Loved it!! I think next time I will double the blue cheese as mine was a fairly mild type. Thank you for this recipe as I've always wanted to try making buffalo wings Big Smile
