Buffalo Chicken Wonton Cups with Litehouse Homestyle Ranch

Making Wonton Cups is super simple. My friend was here when I was preparing this recipe and she was shocked at their simplicity. They literally take about a minute of prep time and 10 minutes to bake in the oven.

All you need is a muffin pan. You add two wonton wrappers to each muffin cup making sure to overlap them so they form a cup. The oven will work its magic and bake them up into a crispy shell that you can use to hold whatever food you like.

I love the flavors of Buffalo Chicken Wings, but do not like the mess they make. Save your paper towel and make these Buffalo Chicken Wonton Cups. You can thank me later.

Scooping up Buffalo Chicken Wonton Cups

Feel free to use leftover chicken to make the Buffalo Chicken filling. I used four chicken breasts because I always have them on hand. Just make sure to cook the chicken first before you start preparing this recipe. That’s why I say that leftover chicken of any cut works great.

The Buffalo Chicken filling has a creamy sauce with a kick. The cream cheese and Litehouse® Homestyle Ranch Dressing & Dip give it an extra level of creaminess while the hot sauce adds the spice.

Don’t worry – this appetizer is not overly spicy. I find Litehouse® Homestyle Ranch Dressing & Dip not only adds a yummy flavor, but it also tones down the heat.

My friend that was here when I was making this recipe does not normally like spicy food, but she found this recipe, “absolutely delicious” – her exact words.
