This inventive spin on Buffalo chicken wings has all the spicy savoriness you'd expect in a much less messy-to-eat package. The cooked chicken gets bathed in tangy hot sauce for that signature mouthwatering burn. But what takes this over the top is how all the usual wing accompaniments—celery, lettuce, blue cheese, and onion—combine in a zesty slaw that cools the palate with every bite. Make a big batch of these for a game day or the Fourth of July and they will be the first nibble to disappear...guaranteed! Got leftover blue cheese? It’s excellent crumbled and added to salads.
