Shredded chicken with buffalo sauce and cream cheese, wrapped up in a warm, crunchy wonton. These are easy and delicious. The perfect appetizer for a party or at home! I like to serve them with blue cheese or ranch dressing.

Directions

  • Melt the butter over medium-high heat in a small saucepan. Remove from heat; whisk the hot pepper sauce and vinegar into the hot butter. When mixture is smooth, set sauce aside and allow to rest for 1 hour to cool and thicken. Stir the shredded chicken into the cooled buffalo sauce, and let stand 15 minutes.

  • Lay out several wonton wrappers, place 1/2 teaspoon chicken in the center of each wrapper and top with 1/2 teaspoon cream cheese. Brush the edges of the wonton wrappers with egg white, fold them over the filling in a triangle shape and press the edged together to seal. Continue until all of the wontons are filled.

  • Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Cook the wontons, carefully placing the wontons 4 to 5 at a time into the hot oil and deep fry until golden brown, flipping as necessary for even browning, about 2 minutes. Remove the wontons from the oil and drain on paper towel.

Cook's Note

The meat can be substituted with just about any kind.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

No one cared for this at all. The pepper sauce overpowered. Very disappointed for our super bowl party.

I am the originator of the recipe. When I make my sauce I use 2 Tablespoons (not teaspoons) of vinegar. It gives it just the right kick! Enjoy!

If you want to bake them instead of frying DO NOT use 1/2 c butter- it makes a huge mess!! I had to blot them off put them on a new pan and then cook them some more so that they were edible. If you are going to bake them use only 1 tablespoon butter- bake at 375- 350 for around 15- 20 mins. I also added some onion in my mixture.

This recipe appeared too good to be true to wait until game day so having all the ingredients on hand we did a preview! I had saved half of a rotisserie chicken from my fav grocery store which cut waaaay down on prep time. Followed recipe didn't change a thing and it is beyond delicious. The vinegar and hot pepper sauce gave it just the right kick. I saw one grand child with one in each hand and wanted to take a photo but had to wait for batteries to be re-charged and by the time I got back to the camera there were not enough wontons left on the platter to take a decent photo! Ranch dressing was the nibblers choice and I was informed that this could be a Super Bowl tradition any ole time I felt like it!!

I love love love to make wontons. they are such a perfect/easy appetizer! These were great i did make a few changes. I did not use the vinegar or butter. I just use franks red hot buffalo sauce. I also put some blue cheese and ranch dressing in the mixture along with some shredded cheese. I do not fry these either i brush some olive oil on them and put them in the oven at 475 for 10 minutes! they come out awesome!

Wow - these are worth the calories! I used only 1/4 cup of butter and it didn't hurt the final product at all. I also sprayed the wontons with Pam after stuffing then sprinkled with kosher salt and baked at 375 for 15 minutes. Served with blue cheese dressing - fantastic everyone really loved them! Next time I try these I will combine the cream cheese with the chicken filling before stuffing the wontons. Great recipe perfect for watching football!

So good!! Just made these for a potluck today! They where the 1st to go! Only thing I did different was that I didn't have time to let the sauce sit an hour so I just added the chicken right after it was done and I didn't fry them I baked them at 350 degress for 10-20 mins. Will deffinatly be making these again very soon!!
