Buffalo Chicken Wonton Cups

The perfect super bowl snack did not exist until this recipe for Buffalo Chicken Wontons Cups! Basically picture your favorite buffalo chicken dip but baked into a crispy wonton cups. It’s cheesy, tangy, and a lot less messy than the dip! Everyone will go absolutely crazy for them.

I thought of making these because I saw everyone making Crab Rangoons as a trend on TikTok. Since the Super Bowl was coming up, I wanted to do something different and make a buffalo chicken rangoon but then I ended up turning it into wonton cups instead and this recipe was born. So much easier than shaping and sealing up every single one! And the best part is no frying involved, just baking in the oven and they still turn out sooo crispy.

The Easiest Way to Shred Chicken

The first step to making this recipe is the chicken! Shredded chicken is commonly used in buffalo dip and there are two methods you can follow.

The first method is boiling chicken breast yourself at home. Just add it to a pot of boiling water with salt and black pepper until cooked through. The secret to shredding it really fast is throwing it into your KitchenAid with the paddle attachment and it does all the shredding for you. Alternatively, you can use a fork or your hands to shred it.

The second method is to just buy a rotisserie chicken and shred it apart so you save some time by skipping boiling the chicken!

How to Make the Filling

Now the flavor is all in the filling and it takes less than five minutes to get it all ready!

Here are all the ingredients you will need:
  • buffalo sauce (my personal favorite to use is the Frank’s Red Hot Brand)
  • ranch
  • shredded cheddar cheese
  • shredded mozzarella cheese
  • cream cheese
  • minced garlic
  • chopped cilantro
  • chopped green bell pepper
  • optional: sliced green onions or diced red onion

Just combine all these ingredients with the shredded chicken and that’s it. So simple.

Shaping the Wontons into Cups and Baking

For equipment, you will need a cupcake tin. First spray the tin with some oil and push a wonton wrapper down into each tin to form a “cup” shape. Pop in the oven to bake at 350°F for 5 to 6 minutes or until golden on the edges.

Then take it out of the oven and add about 2 tablespoons of filling. Add more cheddar and mozzarella cheese on top and pop back in the oven to bake for another 13 to 15 minutes until golden brown and super crispy!

Hajar! Salaam. Happy last day of Ramadan 🙁 I want to make these and I have everything except the cream cheese. Can I leave it out without impacting the recipe terribly? Shukran!

Made these for Iftaar today and my husband absolutely loved them! I’ve made wontons before and I’ve made Buffalo chicken dip and I love that this dip incorporates both! Thanks for sharing the recipe! 🙂

Made these for a Super Bowl party and they were a hit! Pretty easy to make. I will DEFINITELY be making these again!

I made these this evening to try them out before Sundays party aanndd WOW…so delicious. 🙂

Love the recipe but can you share the recipe for buffalo sauce. Since here in my city the sauce is quite costly and not easy to find.

How can I make this kid friendly and less spicy? What can I substitute the Buffalo sauce with?
