I had some leftover chicken and decided to give these buffalo chicken patties a try. I like the combination of cream cheese and cheddar with the hot sauce. We make our own wing sauce using Franks Red Hot sauce as the base; this will be best using your favorite wing sauce what ever it may be. Maybe they need some bread crumbs mixed in to hold them together better; but the flavor is great as it is and after they cool the cheese firms a little so they really are much easier to handle.
Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Patties
1 cup leftover chicken – diced or shredded
1/2 cup celery – thinly sliced
2 Tbs green onion – thinly sliced
1/4 cup wing sauce ~ choose your favorite wing hot sauce
2 o.z. cream cheese
1/2 cup shredded cheddar
Mix together all ingredients except the oil and flour.
Form into patties; I made 6. In large skillet heat about 1/4 inch of oil over medium – medium high heat. Dip patties in flour to coat and fry for about 4 – 5 minutes each side. Remove from skillet and drain well on paper towels; allow to cook at least 3 minutes before serving.
Today Charles made one of my favorites for dinner ~ Hot Wings. I’ve got to share the bleu cheese dressing he makes to go along side. It’s nice and thick and creamy; great for dipping celery and carrots in. Just a short post today ~ it’s been a long day ~ We’ll share more about the wings and our sauces soon!

1 tsp lemon juice
