Buffalo Chicken Wontons with Blue Cheese Dipping Sauce

Crispy Buffalo Chicken Wontons with Cool Blue Cheese Dipping Sauce. YES, PLEASE!

 





 

There is nothing better than spicy Buffalo chicken wings paired with tangy blue cheese! I guess I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with Buffalo wings. I love the way they taste, but I can’t stand getting the sauce all over my hands and face. It drives me crazy! These crunchy little pockets have all that delicious flavor with a lot less mess.

Buffalo Chicken Wontons with Blue Cheese Dip

Blue Cheese Dip:

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • freshly ground black pepper

Combine all in ingredients in food processor. Process for a few seconds, until blended but still chunky. Cover and let chill. ( Dip is best if refrigerated for a few hours before serving).

Buffalo Chicken Wontons:

  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 12 oz. boneless, skinless, chicken thighs
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1/4 cup buffalo wing sauce, such as Frank’s Red Hot
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 pkg. square wonton wrappers
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten with a splash of water

veg. oil for frying

Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add butter to the pan. Coarsely chop chicken. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Saute chicken until completely cooked. Let cool. In a food processor, pulse cooked chicken, green onions, and buffalo sauce, until finely chopped. Remove from food processor and stir in mozzarella cheese. In a small bowl, whisk the egg with a splash of water. On a clean counter, lay out a few wrappers. Brush edges of wrappers with egg wash. Scoop one rounded Tbsp. of filling onto each wrapper. Fold in half pressing out any air. Crimp shut. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add oil to coat the bottom of the pan. When the oil is hot, pan-fry wontons until golden brown on each side. Drain on a paper towel-lined tray. Serve hot with Blue Cheese dip and a side of carrot and celery sticks.
