Buffalo Blasts (Cheesecake Factory)

Saturday, April 24, 2010

Buffalo Blasts from the Cheesecake Factory are like little pillows of heaven. They are the best appetizer out there as far as I'm concerned (and here at 2:30 in the morning that's all that matters). My sister and I searched long and hard to find a recipe that simulated that mouth watering taste and have tweaked it to heavenly perfection. We have made these for countless parties and they are always a big hit.

Buffalo Blasts

pkg. of won ton wrappers (around 50), cooking oil (at least 3-4 cups), boneless skinless chicken breasts (3-4),
Franks Hot Wing sauce, minced garlic (about a tsp), and cream cheese (1/2 cup or so)

Method to the Madness
1. Boil chicken

2. Chop chicken into tiny pieces.

3. Put chicken into food processor along with garlic, cream cheese, and Franks sauce
(amount depends on how hot you want them)*

4. Blend until just mixed**.

5. Heat oil. If not using a fryer, be sure to have enough oil to cover the won ton completely.

6. Put spoonful of chicken mixture into middle of won ton and fold into a triangle.

7. Wet the edges of the won ton and seal shut
(I keep a glass of water nearby and just dip my finger into it)

8. Continue until you run out of chicken
(the amount varies with the size of the won ton but you should be able to get about 30-40)

9. Make sure that oil is ready, around 300 - 325 degrees
(you can also tell by dropping some water in- sizzle = hot)

10. Drop in 3-4 won tons at a time cooking until just brown (literally takes like a minute)

11. Continue until they're all cooked.

12. Serve and accept the accolades of praise you will receive.

* always err on the side of caution with hot sauce. It's better to add a little then to make them too hot. Serve them with some sauce on the side for those who truly want them hot.

** if you don't have a food processor, use a blender. That's what I do and it works out every time.

*** I just wanted to see if you would read this :-)
