¾    cup bleu cheese, crumbled

½    cup mayonnaise

½     cup sour cream

1    tablespoon milk

½    teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 ¾    teaspoons salt

½    teaspoon black pepper — freshly ground

16    each chicken wings

8    tablespoons unsalted butter

1    teaspoon cayenne pepper

1    teaspoon Tabasco sauce

Make the dipping sauce: Place the blue cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, milk, Worcestershire sauce, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and black pepper in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Process until almost smooth; set aside. Meanwhile, preheat the broiler. Cut the chicken wings in thirds, cutting between the bones. Discard the wing tips. Lay the chicken pieces in a baking pan, and set aside.

Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the cayenne pepper, Tabasco, and 1 teaspoon salt; stir to combine. Brush onto the pieces of reserved chicken pieces. Place the chicken about 3 inches below the broiler, and broil until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Turn the chicken pieces over; brush with butter mixture, and return to the broiler until golden brown, about 5 minutes more. Remove from the broiler, and transfer to a serving platter. Serve the chicken hot or at room temperature with the dipping sauce.
