Spicy Chicken Bites
These are so good! Chicken, hot sauce, and cream cheese all rolled together with a Corn Flake crust. Yummo! They have just enough kick to them, but you could go flamin' hot if you're super adventurous like that. I thought they were perfect.
We had these as our main dish, but I'm thinking I might be making these for our next Super Bowl party. They would be an amazing appetizer!
I will admit I had some troubles getting the balls to stay formed - and they were a little messy! I might try this as a casserole someday. I'll just layer the mixture in a casserole dish, and sprinkle the Corn Flakes on top. What do ya think?
3 cups cooked, shredded chicken
1/4 cup Frank's Hot Sauce (add more if you like it way spicy!)
3 1/2 oz cream cheese, softened
1 3/4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup green onions, chopped
1 cup flour
4 eggs, lightly beaten
3 - 4 cups Corn Flakes cereal, crushed
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. (I used foil, and then sprayed it with cooking spray.)
In a large bowl, combine chicken, hot sauce, both cheeses and green onions. Form into large balls and place onto a separate baking sheet.
Place flour, eggs, and Corn Flakes in 3 separate dishes. Dip each chicken ball into the flour, then the eggs and last the Corn Flakes.
Place onto prepared baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes.
Great plain or with ranch dressing - Enjoy!
