Buffalo Chicken Cheese Balls

Total Time:
30 min
Prep:
20 min
Cook:
10 min

Yield:
15 to 20 balls
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
Directions

Have oil heated to 350 degrees F.

Pick the meat from the chicken and discard the skin. Place the chicken in a large bowl and add the hot sauce, pepper, cheese, and scallions, and toss to combine. Roll the chicken into 2-ounce balls, about the size of a golf ball.

Place the flour, eggs, and bread crumbs in 3 separate bowls. Roll each ball in the flour, then the egg and then the bread crumbs. Set aside.

When the oil is hot fry the chicken balls in batches. Cook for about 2 minutes per batch. Remove the chicken to paper towel lined plate to drain the excess oil.

To make the sauce, combine all ingredients in a large bowl and adjust the seasoning if necessary. Serve the chicken alongside the dipping sauce.

Very tasty pretty easy to do I froze them after frying and put them in the oven for a party will be doing them again! love the blue cheese sauce as well. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Should have only used 1/2 the hot sauce (or less) called for in the recipe. Too spicy for our family but otherwise, the appetizer is amazing and will definitely make it again but will temper the heat!!! (Served with some homemade Canes dipping sauce so was able to lessen the heat a bit.) item not reviewed by moderator and published

Mmm these are just yummy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made the recipe exactly as written. The cheese balls were delicious. Really delicious. I did use a Safeway rotisserie chicken, which yields much less meat than the rotisserie chicken I usually buy at Costco. I had no difficulty getting the balls to hold together, and the flavor of the buffalo sauce was perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The only change I made was that I used 6 lbs of boneless skinless chicken breasts because I bought the ingredients too long ago to have kept a rotisserie. I boiled the chicken breasts in stock until they were cooked through and then just cooled and shredded them. Still amazing! item not reviewed by moderator and published
