As is the case with many signature American dishes, the true origin of Buffalo chicken is shrouded in folklore and conflicting stories. At Blue Apron, we know two things: it’s named for the city of Buffalo, NY, and it’s delicious. In our take on the classic, we’re baking the drumsticks instead of frying them, but we’re sticking to tradition by coating them in a deliciously spicy sauce and serving them with creamy blue cheese dressing. And instead of plain old celery sticks as a side (the usual accompaniment), we’re serving sliced celery and apple in a refreshing, cooling salad.

Buffalo-Style Chicken Drumsticks with Blue Cheese Sauce & Celery-Apple Salad ingredients
  • 6 Chicken Drumsticks
  • 2 Stalks Celery
  • 1 Granny Smith Apple
  • ¼ Pound Celeriac
  • 1 Bunch Chives
  • 4 Tablespoons Hot Sauce
  • ¼ Cup Crumbled Blue Cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons Champagne Vinegar
  • Cup Sour Cream
