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.

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Place the chicken on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to thoroughly coat. Roast, flipping halfway through, 30 to 32 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through (the juices should run clear). Remove from the oven.

In a medium bowl, combine the blue cheese, half the chives, half the vinegar and ⅔ of the sour cream. Stir to thoroughly combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste and set aside. In a separate medium bowl, combine the remaining vinegar and sour cream. Slowly whisk in 2 tablespoons of olive oil until combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
