This recipe from Wayfare Tavern in San Francisco is a simple twist on the ubiquitous Buffalo wings, a dish that has become so much a part of the American culinary vernacular that most chefs have their own variation.
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Toss the chicken wings with the olive oil and season liberally with salt and pepper. Spread the wings on a rimmed baking sheet and roast for 45 minutes, or until they are crispy and golden brown.
Whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise, lemon juice, and chives in a medium bowl. Gently stir in the crumbled cheese and season with salt and pepper.
Arrange the wings on a platter and drizzle with the chili oil. Scatter the radishes and celery leaves over the wings and serve with the blue cheese dressing on the side.
