Hot Chicken Appetizers

    3 cups shredded cooked chicken (I use our food processor
              shredding device to do this ~ it works pretty good!)
    1/4 to 1/2 cup hot sauce (to taste ~ really!)
    3 1/2 ounces cream cheese, softened
    1 3/4 cups sharp shredded cheddar cheese
    1/4 cup chopped green onions
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    4 eggs, lightly beaten
    3 – 4 cups Corn Flakes cereal, crushed

  • Preheat oven to 350˚F. 
  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, combine chicken, cream cheese and hot sauce, cheddar cheese and green onions.
  • Roll a heaping tablespoon of mixture into a 1½-inch ball and place onto a plate or separate baking sheet. 
  • Repeat with the remaining mixture.
  • Place flour in a shallow dish.
  • In a second shallow dish, place eggs.
  • In a third shallow dish, place corn flakes.
  • Dip each chicken ball first into the flour, then the egg and ending with the Corn Flakes. 
  • Place on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. 
  • Serve warm with ranch or blue cheese dressing.
  • They freeze well and then you can thaw them out and re-heat in microwave.
