Buffalo Chicken Cheese Balls

These make a lot of cheese balls so make sure you've got a lot of people to eat them! There are very delicious but, eat them when they first come out of the oven-- so good! I made these last month for my sister-in-laws baby shower.

2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded 
1/2 cup Frank's Red Hot sauce
4 oz. cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup freshly sliced scallions1 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
a dash of salt, pepper, and garlic salt. 
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups bread crumbs

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease; set aside.
2. Place shredded chicken in a medium-sized bowl. Mix in hot sauce, scallions, cream cheese, cheddar cheese,blue cheese, salt, pepper and garlic salt, until combined.
3. With a small cookie scoop, scoop mixture out and roll into balls.
4. Place flour, egg, and the bread crumbs in three separate bowls, arranged on the counter for dipping.  Roll each ball in the flour, then the egg, then the bread crumbs, until coated well.  (Your hands will get messy). Place each ball on the repared baking sheet.
5. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown. Serve with more Frank's sauce, ranch dressing, or blue cheese.
*Makes about 2 dozen cheese bites. 

Enjoy !!
