Gluten-Free Sticky Super Bowl Chicken Wings with Blue Cheesy Dip

gluten-free chicken wings

What does the Super Bowl, or even just plain-old football, mean to me? Food. Snack food. Finger food, in particular. Here are my wings -sticky, sweet, salty -all in one bite. Dip them in the blue cheese dip and you get creamy and cool, too. Just make sure you have plenty of napkins nearby.


Gluten-Free Sticky Super Bowl Chicken Wings with Blue Cheesy Dip

Yield: 4


12 chicken wingettes, separated at the joint and tips discarded

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Salt and pepper

¼ cup sour cream

2 ounces ( ¼ cup) cream cheese, at room temperature

¼ cup crumbled blue cheese

¼ cup store-bought tangy barbecue sauce

¼ cup honey

1 clove garlic, finely chopped

¼ cup sesame seeds, toasted


  1. Position an oven rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat to 450 °. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil. In a large bowl, toss together the chicken, oil, ¾ teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. Arrange the chicken on the prepared baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mash the sour cream and cream cheese with a fork; season with salt. Stir in the blue cheese and 1 tablespoon water. Refrigerate.
  3. In another large bowl, stir together the barbecue sauce, honey and garlic. Transfer the partially cooked chicken wings to the sauce with tongs and stir to coat. Discard the foil and line the same baking sheet with parchment paper. Return the wings to the baking sheet and roast in the oven for 8 minutes. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and roast until the wings are nicely browned, about 5 minutes more. Serve with the blue cheese dip.

    I dearly love your blog. I want to try every recipe. I included your link and a little information about your blog in an article I wrote for our January Celiac Support Group newsletter. I hope that’s ok (bad time to ask now huh?).

      Hi Johanna, yes, of course it’s okay! Thank YOU for including me…super sweet!

    Wow, those look amazing Silvana. My husband would definitely love these, though he’d be happy to skip the big game 🙂

      Totally agree. I know nothing about football! It’s all about the food…

    Yummo, I like the sound of th cheese sauce too. You do realise though, that is not nearly enough chicken for sharing? I might have to triple that just for my husband!

    • Silvana on January 27, 2011 at 8:27 pm

      Yes, you’re totally right! I double the recipe myself…The cheese sauce is killer!

    Hi Silvana… I love the addition of the toasted sesame seeds to the wings! While I’m personally not much of a blue cheese fan, the rest of the recipe sounds delish! It just might have to make an appearance at our Superbowl shindig.

    Cheers, Pete

    Why is there not a simple way to save these recipes AND print them as a recipe card??

      Hi Dee Dee, I finally have a print feature. Hope it’s not too late!

    I would just like to add that not all barbecue sauces are gluten free so don’t forget to check your labels!

      Hi Jenee, yes, thank you for the essential reminder!

    Right here is the right web site for anyone who would
    like to find out about this topic. You realize a whole lot its
    almost hard to argue with you (not that I personally would want to_HaHa).
    You certainly put a fresh spin on a topic that has
    been discussed for decades. Great stuff, just excellent!
