  1. Fill a large 5 to 6-quart heavy pot with 2-inches of oil. Heat over medium heat until a deep fry thermometer registers 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Working in batches, pat 5 to 6 wings dry with VIVA® towels. Gently drop wings into the hot oil. Move them gently in the oil with a spider or slotted spoon so the wings don't stick together. Fry until crispy and golden, about 7 minutes. Remove to a VIVA® towel lined plate and season with salt immediately. Continue with remaining batches.

  2. Melt butter over medium heat in a small sauce pan with the hot sauce and lemon juice and a pinch of salt. Pour into a large bowl and add wings. Toss to coat well. Remove celery sticks from water and drain on Viva® towels.

  3. Serve chicken wings on a platter with celery sticks and blue cheese dip.

  4. Blue Cheese Dip: Whisk all ingredients together in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.
