Buffalo chicken wings with ranch dressing
Wash the wings thoroughly and pat dry with paper towels. Cut the tip off each wing and discard. Bend each wing back to snap the joint and cut through to create two pieces. Combine 2 teaspoons of black pepper, the garlic salt, and onion powder, and rub into the wings.
Heat the oil to moderately hot in a deep heavy-based pan. Deep-fry the chicken in batches for 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
Transfer the chicken to a shallow, nonmetallic dish. Combine the sauces, butter, sugar, and Tabasco and pour over the chicken, stirring to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
Cook the chicken on a hot, lightly oiled barbecue grill plate or flat plate for 5 minutes, turning and brushing with the marinade.
To make the ranch dressing, combine the mayonnaise, cream, juice, chives, and salt and pepper to taste, and serve with the chicken wings.
