Blue Cheese Dipping Sauce

Blue cheese dipping sauce is the perfect compliment to buffalo chicken drumettes.  And since I recently added an air fryer to my collection of kitchen gadgets it’s the perfect excuse for me to try out the fryer setting.  Especially since I’ve only used my it for warming things up.

When a blue cheese dipping sauce is paired with the spiciness of buffalo drumettes it soothes the heat.   Which gives it less of a bite.  Of course, that’s if you’re a lightweight when it comes to heat like myself.  If you can handle the heat then the added flavor profile from the blue cheese makes for a party in your mouth.

Surprisingly, some may say blue cheese tastes like vomit because of the butyric acid.  But depending on the quality of blue cheese this may not always be the case.  In fact, I’ve come across two different brands, Saint Agur and Salemville, that are really delicious.  So much so that I’ve used this dipping sauce with an assortment of veggies.  Another dipping sauce option is my dill sauce 

Seeing that flour is a no no on keto I substituted coating the chicken with seasoned flour and instead used a blend of seasonings with baking powder.  It only took 24 minutes to get some nice and crispy drumettes.  For a while now I’ve found it hard to find drumettes in the store.  My way around that was to cut and discard the wing tip then cut the joint where the drumstick and wing come together and voila instant drumettes.
