    Things To Grab

      Directions

      1. Place a wire rack on a baking sheet; set aside. Pour oil to a depth of 1-1/2 inches into a wok, deep skillet or 5-quart Dutch oven and heat over medium-high heat to about 325 degrees on a deep-fry thermometer. (If you don't have a deep-fry thermometer, stick a dry bamboo chopstick into the oil; if it takes about 2 seconds for bubbles to rise and encircle the chopstick, the oil is ready.
      2. For filling, in a medium mixing bowl combine cream cheese, blue cheese and buffalo wing sauce. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Stir in chicken; set aside.
      3. For egg wash, in a small bowl whisk together 1 egg and water; set aside.
      4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place wonton wrappers on a flat surface. Add 2 teaspoons chicken mixture to center of each wrapper. Brush egg wash on edges to moisten. Fold edges together to form a triangle, pressing to seal. Place filled wontons on prepared baking sheet. When all are filled, loosely cover with a kitchen towel to keep from drying out.
      5. Place panko crumbs, flour and remaining eggs in three separate shallow bowls; lightly whisk the eggs. Dip wonton triangles, one at a time, into flour, then egg; coat with panko. Return to parchment-lined pan.
      6. Working in batches of 4 to 6, slide dipped wontons into the hot oil and fry for 20 to 30 seconds on each side or until golden brown. Use a skimmer to transfer to the wire rack to drain. Serve hot with additional buffalo wing sauce.
      7. Ahead-of-the-Game Plan: Fill wontons as directed the day before; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Remove wontons from refrigerator and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Dip and fry as directed.
