Chicken Wings with Homemade Blue Cheese Dip
Cooks notes: the gherkins add a tasty pickle flavour to the blue cheese dip while theparmesan stirred through at the end adds saltiness and a little texture to this dip.
Using parchment on the tray prevents the wings and sauce from burning, and stopsyou having to scrub a tray for hours.
