Buffalo Chicken Cheese Balls

They were very different but good. I will make again with at least one change I will mention.

The recipe called for pulling the meat from a rotisserie chicken from the store but I just used 4 thighs and 2 boneless breast because I had them on hand already.  Cooked the chicken raised direct after marinating in Texas Pete Buffalo sauce.

I will definitely not be using mild next time, they could have used a little more kick.

Pulled the chicken and "discarded" the skin

Seasoned with this stuff, it's a bbq joint where I spent alot of mytime when I lived in Memphis

Then I chopped it fine with my processor, a step I will probably skip next time because it just changes the texture too much for my liking.  It does allow for uniform "balls" though.  Added cheese, can't remember how much maybe 1 cup and a half? Also added more buffalo sauce and mixed it all in and let sit in the fridge to firm.

Added green onions right before I formed into balls.  Dipped each into flour for a light coating, then egg(I used three eggs beaten) then panko bread crumbs.

Deep fry for 2-4 minutes in 350 degree oil.  I did it in my new wok.  It did get a little char on the wood handles, oops.

They turned out crispy on the outside and cheesy chicken goodness on the inside.  Serve with ranch or blue cheese.

    Thanks for posting - I was hoping you would share the recipe! But I have to ask... what is extra mild wing sauce? That's like extra light beer :)

  • They look good. I don't think I could deep fry on the egg. It just sounds like a disaster waiting to happen.

    These look great...

    I have a wok, but I would likely use my DO for the frying. How long did you fry them for?

    Thanks for sharing :)

    Honestly I'm not sure exactly, I waited until they were brown.  Probably went 4 minutes on the second batch because the oil was cooled down from the first which went about 2 minutes or so.
