Directions
1.
In a large bowl toss the drummettes with 2 tablespoons of the cayenne pepper sauce, 1 teaspoon of the cider vinegar, the garlic powder, and the ginger.
2.
Arrange drummettes on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat 15 to 20 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink, turning once. Drizzle chicken with remaining 2 tablespoons cayenne pepper sauce and 1 teaspoon cider vinegar.
3.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine sour cream, blue cheese, green onion, white wine vinegar, lemon juice, and sugar. Serve dressing with chicken drummettes and carrot and celery sticks.
Tip
  • * Grasp the edge of the skin with a paper towel and pull it away from the drummette.
Tip
  • If you can't find chicken drummettes, start with 12 chicken wings. Cut off the wing tips; discard or save for making stock. Cut wings at joints to form 24 pieces.
