Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup shredded chicken
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup buffalo wing sauce
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 3 cups Hooters Wing Breading
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 8 7" square wonton wrappers
  • 4 cups canola or vegetable oil
  • celery sticks
  • Blue Cheese Dressing

Instructions
 

  • Start by mixing your filling together in a large bowl – chicken, cheese, and wing sauce
    1 cup shredded chicken, 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup buffalo wing sauce
  • Then, set up breading stations. Whisk together eggs and water in one tray. In a separate shallow dish, stir together Hooters breading, cornstarch and salt in a second tray.
    3 eggs, 3 tbsp water, 3 cups Hooters Wing Breading, 2 tbsp cornstarch, 1 tsp kosher salt
  • On a cutting board or flat surface, lay out one wonton wrapper and spoon 2 tablespoon of the buffalo chicken mixture in center of the wonton wrapper.
    8 7" square wonton wrappers
  • Dip pastry brush (or dip finger) in egg mixture and brush lightly around edges of wrapper.
  • Fold wrapper over filling, forming a triangle, pressing to seal edges. Set aside, and repeat with remaining filling and wrappers. 
  • Do not discard egg mixture.
  • Preheat oil to 350°F in a Dutch oven (or deep dish frying pan) over medium to medium-high. (Temp check with an instant read thermometer)
    4 cups canola or vegetable oil
  • Lay stuffed wontons in Hooters flour mixture, then dip in egg mixture and repeat two more times – you want a really thick double breading! That’s the key to make them just like the Cheesecake Factory!
    Be sure to let the excess drip and shake off between breadings.
  • Fry 2 at a time until golden brown and flaky, flipping occasionally, about 5 minutes. Small batches are the best way to fry these. They are fairly large. Be sure to let the oil heat back up between batches.
  • Place a wire rack with paper towels underneath on a rimmed baking sheet. Put buffalo blasts on rack and set in warm 250 F oven while you’re frying the remaining blasts.
  • Repeat process with remaining pieces. 
  • Serve immediately with celery sticks, and buffalo sauce and blue cheese for dipping.
