They have the flavor of Buffalo chicken dip rolled into a ball and then breaded and deep fried. Dip in either ranch or blue cheese dip. I served these at a Super Bowl party, and the crowd loved them.

Directions

  • Mix the chicken, green onions, Cheddar cheese, pepperjack cheese, hot sauce, and ranch dressing mix together in a bowl; form the mixture into 1-inch balls with a scoop. Place the balls on a large, flat dish; chill in refrigerator 2 to 3 hours.

  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Gently press the balls into the flour to coat and shake off any excess. Dip into the beaten egg and then press into bread crumbs. Place the breaded chicken balls onto a plate while breading the rest; do not stack.

  • Fry the breaded balls in the hot oil until slightly browned, about 1 minute.

pretty good! i didn't use the whole cup of hot sauce and we just had sharp and medium cheddar. only thing i didn't like about them was the cheese inside didn't really melt. maybe it was the cheese i used? we had these for our super bowl meal...went over well! Read More

Made this for a party we went to. Everyone loved it. Very unique and original. Had ranch and bleu cheese dressing to dip them in. Next time I make them I'm going to try adding cream cheese to the mix. Read More

Mixed these up and let them sit overnight. We made half the recipe and I did add a couple heaping tablespoons of cream cheese to the mix. We used panko crumbs for an extra crunch. And I used a fry pan with oil not a deep fryer. They were awesome! I thought the sharp cheddar made them a bit 'saltier' but still awesome. We might try making patties and doing a sandwich sometime. This one is perfect if you love the hot buffalo flavor like we do. Read More

The balls didn't form together at all until I heated up the cheese and chicken mixture and then they worked great. i switched the ranch mix for onion soup mix bc my bf doesn't like ranch then deep fried them. Be careful not to fry them too long because it doesn't take long for them to get burned. But my bf still ate them and wanted me to make them again so I will definitely start making these more often-just less burnt! Read More
