Buffalo Wontons


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.

Original recipe makes 16 servings


1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup hot pepper sauce
2 teaspoons distilled white vinegar
2 cups shredded cooked chicken
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (12 ounce) package wonton wrappers
1 egg white
2 cups oil for frying

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  4. 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.
