Hi guys! I haven’t posted anything in a few weeks, however behind the scenes I have been playing around with different recipes trying to perfect them so I can share with you all. The recipe I’m bringing to you today is a copycat version of Cheesecake Factory’s Buffalo Blasts.

These are really pretty simple to make. You are going to take wonton wrappers, fill them with a chicken, cheese, and buffalo sauce mixture. Next you brush these babies with egg, dip them in flour and spices. Lastly you deep fry them. That’s it.

The biggest obstacle I ran into was making sure not to overstuff the wontons with the chicken, since they are really pretty small. Also, you’ll need to have a delicate hand while you are pressing the edges of the wonton wrappers together, since they are so thin and easy to tear.

This recipe is a great appetizer or game day snack. I served these with a mixture of buffalo sauce and blue cheese, which was awesome.
