Servings - 7 servings


  • 2 1/2 cups sharp cheddar
  • 1/2 cup freshly sliced scallions
  • 5 eggs lightly beaten
  • 3 cups Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 cup mild hot sauce
  • 5 cups cooked shredded chicken
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 cup blue cheese salad dressing for dipping


  • Heat skillet on medium.
  • Place eggs, breadcrumbs and flour in separate bowls, like an assembly line.
  • Mix cheese, scallions, pepper, garlic salt, hot sauce, and chicken in a large bowl.
  • Make egg size balls out of the chicken mixture, yep, get your hands in there!
  • Coat chicken balls in the flour, then dip in eggs, and then bread crumbs.
  • Fry balls in the oil for approximately 2 minutes, (you’ll probably have to do several batches of 5 balls each).
  • Set on paper towels to absorb excess oil and then serve warm, dipped in blue cheese dressing.
