Chicken Wings with Blue Cheese Dip (Keto)

Chicken wings and blue cheese dip: YUM! You can serve this up as an appetiser at your next BBQ, or simply enjoy it for dinner like Funnyman and I did. Adjust the amount of cayenne pepper for the wings to suit your liking, but be mindful that you don’t want any flavours to compete with the luxuriously stinky dip!

Chicken Wings with Blue Cheese Dip (Keto)

Deliciously spicy with a simple but powerful sauce, these wings are a crowd-pleaser at your next BBQ. The macros are calculated that this recipe could sufficiently serve 3 people as a light meal, tapas or appetiser, but Funnyman and I enjoyed the whole lot between us for supper.

Servings 3 as an appetiser


For the chicken wings

  • 500 g (17.6 oz) chicken wings
  • 1/2 TB paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • generous pinch salt

For the blue cheese dip

  • 85 g (3 oz) blue cheese
  • 40 g (1.4 oz) double cream
  • sea salt flakes
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • chopped parsley, to garnish


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan oven). This is 200°C for conventional ovens (or 400°F / gas mark 6).
  • Remove the chicken wings from their packaging and pat dry with kitchen paper.
  • Place them in a bowl and scatter over the paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder and a generous pinch of salt. Get stuck in with clean hands and work the spices into the chicken so they are coated evenly.
  • Spread the chicken wings out on a tray (skin side up) lined with parchment paper and bake in the oven for 30-32 minutes.
  • In the meantime, make the sauce. It couldn't be easier. Simply add the blue cheese and cream to a small pan and heat gently until the cheese completely melts. Allow the cream to reduce slightly, stirring the pan regularly.
  • When the chicken is done, season with sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper. Season with sauce with a crack of black pepper and garnish the whole lot in chopped parsley. Dip the wings in the blue cheese, or simply drizzle it over.
