Ingredients

Buffalo Chicken Poppers

  • 1 store-bought rotisserie chicken
  • 1/4 cup Frank's Red Hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 3/4 cups sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1/4 cup freshly sliced scallions
  • 1 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 cups panko bread crumbs
  • vegetable oil for frying

Blue Cheese Dip

  • 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese crumbled
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic

Instructions

Buffalo Chicken Poppers

  • Heat oil in a deep saute pan or Fry Daddy to 350 F.
  • Pick the meat off the chicken and discard the skin. Place the chicken in a large bowl and add the hot sauce, pepper, cheese, and scallions, and toss to combine. Roll the chicken into 2-ounce balls, about the size of a golf ball.
  • Place the flour, eggs, and bread crumbs in 3 separate bowls. Roll each ball in the flour, then the egg and then the bread crumbs. Set aside.
  • Fry the chicken balls in heated oil in batches. Cook for about 2 minutes per batch. Remove the chicken to paper towel lined plate to drain the excess oil.

Blue Cheese Dip

  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and adjust the seasoning if necessary. Serve the chicken alongside the dipping sauce.
