Buffalo Chicken Cheese Balls


Buffalo Chicken Cheese Balls


  • 1 store-bought rotisserie chicken
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce (or to taste)
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 3/4 cup Ellsworth Sharp Cheddar, shredded
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • vegetable oil for frying


  • Heat oil to 350°F
  • Pick meat from chicken, discard the skin, and shred meat
  • Place chicken in large bowl and add hot sauce, pepper, cheese, and green onions and mix
  • Roll chicken into 2oz balls (about golf ball size)
  • Place flour, eggs, and bread crumbs into 3 separate bowls. Roll each ball in the flour, then the egg, then the bread crumbs. Set aside
  • When the oil is hot, deep fry the chicken balls in batches. Cook for about 2 min per batch. Remove chicken to paper towel lined plate to drain excess oil.
