Buffalo Chicken Wontons

7 Feb

OOOOOOO baby do I have a treat for you.

I think the only healthy ingredient in these was the water I used to seal each wonton.

These were obviously a super bowl hit! I followed Jenna’s recipe over at Eat, Live, Run and they came out perfect.

First I deboned/skinned a rotisserie chicken and chopped her up in little pieces. Next I melted 1/4 stick butter over medium heat in a regular frying pan, added the chicken and two cloves minced garlic. Because the chicken was already cooked I heated it through making sure every little piece was coated in buttery goodness.

Next, remove from heat and add 1/3 buffalo sauce. Franks will do but I used this:

This stuff was amazing! Thank you Whole Foods.

Stir in sauce and let cool. Add 2 cups mozz and 1 cup cheddar cheese.

If I ever make these again, I will most definitely  add crumbly bleu cheese to the mixture and not as much mozzarella.

Now is the fun part! Heat an inch or so of vegetable oil in pan over medium high heat. Then lay out your little wonton wrappers and put a scoop in the middle.

Finally eat them all share with your loved ones!

This is the second recipe I’ve made from Eat, Live, Run, check out my channa masala!

I’ll be burning these off for days but oh well … it was worth it.

An Indian Affair: Channa Marsala

I wish I could take credit for the above photo but it’s from the foodie, baker extraordinaire Jenna at Eat Live Run. I’ve been dying to make this but was lacking in the spice department. After a trip to Trader Joe’s and the deli down the street I had everything but the coriander. I had come this far and was not looking back.

Now that’s mine! Bam, spam, thank you mam. Jenna’s recipe was VERY easy to follow and my roommate was laughing at me during the pinceing process. Read the post, you’ll understand.

          Onions take 1.                                    Onions take 2.

Hmmmmm sautéed onions how I love you. If you’re into Indian food then get to the kitchen stat. This is pretty easy to make and pretty healthy for ya. Load up on the spices though. You’ll need: cumin, coriander, garam masala, cayenne pepper and tumeric. 

I put too much cayenne in it, hence the photo below. But I’m a huge wuss when it comes to spicy. I might but another can of diced tomatoes and add to take the edge off.

Much better.

I’ve got to say that seltzer is my new thing. I used to think it was vile, but I’m becoming quite the fan. I feel like it’s healthy soda.
