Expert Tips

No change.

Blue cheese gets its characteristic color and flavor from the bacteria used to develop the cheese. The assertive flavor of blue cheese complements the hot spiciness of Buffalo chicken recipes.

Marinate the chicken in the refrigerator up to 1 day ahead. Prepare, cover and chill the dipping sauce while the chicken is marinating.
