"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

2 kg (4 pounds) chicken wings cut into drumettes and flats
4 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons garlic powder
Pinch of cracked pepper
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup Frank's Original Red Hot Sauce
1 teaspoon granulated white sugar (optional)
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese softened
1/3 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 cloves garlic minced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Pinch of salt
Pinch of cracked black pepper
Ranch dressing
Blue cheese dressing (RECIPE AS ABOVE) for serving
Celery sticks for serving

Adjust oven rack to upper-middle position and preheat oven to 450F (230C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminium foil and set a heat-proof wire rack inside.
Pat dry chicken wings liberally with paper towels, squeezing out as much moisture as you can. Transfer them to a large bowl.
In a small bowl, combine the baking powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper together, whisking well to combine. Toss wings through the baking powder mixture until evenly coated.
Arrange on rack, leaving about 1-inch of space between each wing.
Bake for 30 minutes; flip and continue to cook until crisp and golden brown, (about 20-30 minutes longer), until golden browned and crispy.
While wings are cooking, whisk together hot sauce, butter and sugar. Toss wings through the sauce to evenly coat.
Serve wings immediately with blue cheese dressing or ranch dressing, and celery sticks.
Recipe Notes
For crispier wings, follow steps 1-4. Then refrigerate wings uncovered overnight. This ensures they are thoroughly dried out.
I tried both methods, and only noticed a slightly crispier texture in the refrigerated wings!
