For today’s tailgating recipe I made Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Cakes. Oh my gosh, if you’re a Buffalo Chicken fan, you will love these cakes. They are cheesy, spicy, chock full of chicken and a breeze to make. I got this idea from a restaurant that I went to. They served up Buffalo Chicken Balls that were fried. I took that idea and ran with, it to make a more healthy, guilt-free appetizer that will sure to please any football fan. Whats even better, they taste better than the fried ones that I had at the restaurant.

To make them I took cooked chicken, shredded it and added it to a bowl with cheddar cheese, hot sauce and bread crumbs. Give it a good mix and then shape into patties. You can make any size you like. I went with about a 1/4 cup scoop. Once you shape the patties you refrigerate them for 30 minutes, just so it holds together while cooking it.

To cook it, I added some cooking spray and a pinch of butter to a skillet. Add the chicken patties and cooked each side for about 4 minutes. Make sure you keep the heat on medium, if it’s to high it will burn and the patties will stick. Trust me, I did that on the first batch. Once they were done, I served them with some celery sticks, blue cheese dressing and of course Gallo Family Vineyards White Zinfandel. The White Zinfandel sets off the spiciness of the Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Cakes with hints of strawberry and peach.

    Cook time: 
    Total time: 
    A spicy, cheesy chicken appetizer that tastes like Buffalo Chicken Wings.
    • 1¼ lbs. chicken, skinless, boneless, cooked, shredded
    • 1 cup Franks Hot Sauce) or favorite hot sauce
    • 1.5 oz cheddar cheese, shredded
    • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
    • 1 tbsp. butter
    1. In a bowl, add the chicken, hot sauce, cheddar cheese and bread crumbs. Mix until combined. Take about a ¼ cup of the mixture and flatten it into a patty. (Be sure to wear gloves because the hot sauce can sting). Place the patties on a plate and refrigerate for 30 minutes, you want it to hold together. (NOTE: You can make the patties any size you prefer, small or bigger.)
    2. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat, spray with cooking spray and butter. Once butter is melted add the chicken. Cook each side for about 4 minutes, until lightly golden, flip and cook until other side is lightly golden. Be sure to give enough room in the pan to flip the patties, I cooked 4 at a time. Place the patties on a paper towel to cool for a few minutes. Serve with ranch or blue cheese dressing if desired.
