Buffalo Chicken Bombs
These are crunchy, spicy, cheesy, delicious bites that -- be warned -- are both addictive and a bit heavy. Perfect for the Super Bowl or any other big party.

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes
Servings: 30 bites


  • 3 cups shredded, cooked chicken (see note)
  • 1/2 cup Frank's RedHot hot sauce
  • 4 oz cream cheese (half block) softened
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup sliced scallions
  • 1 cup flour
  • 4 eggs beaten
  • 4 cups corn flakes crushed


  • Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper, aluminum foil, or a silicone baking mat.
  • In a large bowl, mix together chicken, cream cheese, hot sauce, cheddar cheese and scallions.
  • In three separate shallow dishes, place flour, eggs, and corn flakes.
  • Using a cookie scoop, ice cream scoop, or other similar spoon, scoop chicken mixture and form into balls slightly smaller than a golf ball. Dip each ball first in flour, then egg, then corn flakes and roll to ensure corn flakes are covering all sides.
  • Place on the baking sheet and bake for about 25 minutes or until crispy on the outside.
  • Serve with blue cheese, of course!


Rotisserie chicken from the supermarket is perfect for this recipe. Otherwise, bake up some thighs or breasts and then shred with two forks.
