Buffalo Chicken Wonton Bites

Can you believe the Super Bowl is only just a few days away? Since my Steelers will not be playing in the big game this year, I’m looking forward to cooking up a few of our favorite football appetizers {I told my husband that if the Steelers did make it to the Super Bowl, we were ordering takeout because I didn’t want to miss a second!} 

Buffalo chicken goes together with football like peanut butter and jelly, and this bite-sized recipe is the perfect simple and quick appetizer that will let you sit back and enjoy the game.

If you have been following along for awhile, you may remember that I shared a similar recipe last year around Super Bowl time. And as much as I loved the bite-sized tacos then, these buffalo chicken ones might just take the cake. The buffalo sauce is creamy and the wonton wrapper give each bite the perfect crunch. 

I know I’m always looking for quick and easy recipes during the Super Bowl — if you don’t have a team in the game, you at least want to see the commercials! What I love most about these bite-sized appetizers is that the buffalo chicken filling and the wontons can be made and “toasted” ahead of time so it only requires about 10 minutes right before you are ready to serve them. 

Buffalo Chicken Wonton Bites

2 cups Rotisserie chicken, finely chopped
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup Frank’s hot sauce
1/2 cup Ranch dressing
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
24 wonton wrappers
Blue cheese crumbles, for garnish
Green onions, diced for garnish

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the wonton wrappers in a mini cupcake pan; cook for 5 minutes to “toast”. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the cream cheese, hot sauce, Ranch dressing and cheddar cheese. Add the chicken and stir until completely incorporated. Add a small scoop of the chicken mixture to each wonton cup and cook for an additional 10 minutes or until the wrappers are just golden brown. Garnish with blue cheese crumbles and diced green onions, if desired. Makes 24 wonton bites.


Do you have any fun plans for the Super Bowl? What food is on your football menu for the weekend? Thanks for stopping by and happy cooking!

  1. I couldn't agree more, buffalo chicken is synonymous with Game Day, especially Super Bowl Sunday; I actually just bought buffalo sauce from HomeGoods the other day because we're planning on making some wings. I love this version, which is especially perfect for a party. We're having our gender reveal right before the game starts, we had completely forgot about the game, haha, since my hubby's teams didn't make it either, but he's just excited to see the possibility of a certain team loosing. Guess, we're from NY, it's quite obvious which one, haha. Anyway, thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having the best start to your week so far!



  2. Yum, yum! These not only look cute, but they look so good! I love anything that has buffalo sauce and ranch! My Falcons are playing in the SuperBowl and I don't want to miss a second either, so I might skip on the cooking this year…I will have to try these some other time! Pinned!
