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.
