  • cup (79g) buffalo sauce such asFrank’s Red Hot Sauce
  • ¼ cup (44g) softened cream cheese mixed to make smooth
  • 1 pound (453g) shredded chicken
  • 2 tablespoons blue cheese crumbles
  • 1 green scallion finely chopped
  • 25 wonton wrappers


To Air Fry

  • In a small bowl, combine the buffalo sauce and cream cheese until the mixture is smooth.
  • Add in the shredded chicken, blue cheese crumbles and green onions to the cream cheese mixture until everything is well combined.
  • Scoop small amounts of the filling into each wonton wrapper. Wet the edges with water and fold to seal.
  • Preheat the Air Fryer temperature to 350 degrees F / 180 degrees C.
  • Lightly spray the air fryer basket with nonstick cooking spray. Add the buffalo chicken wontons in a single layer and lightly spray the wontons with oil.
  • Air fry the wontons for 6-8 minutes until golden brown, turning halfway through cooking.
  • Place the cooked wontons on a plate and serve warm.

To Deep Fry

  • Heat two inches of cooking oil to 350 degrees F / 180 degrees C in a pan with deep sides over medium high heat.
  • When the oil has come to temperature, add the wontons and fry for 2-3 minutes until lightly golden brown.
  • Place on a plate lined with paper towels to drain off the excess oil.

To Oven Bake

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F / 180 degrees C.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment or a silicone mat and add the wontons in a single layer on the try.
  • Brush the wontons with an egg wash and bake for about 10 minutes or until golden in color.


  • Bring the cream cheese to room temperature before making the filling. 
  • Blend the cream cheese and buffalo sauce before adding the remaining ingredients.
  • Chop the shredded chicken into smaller pieces to make filling each wonton wrapper with small amounts easier to do. Large chunks of chicken can be challenging to work with. 
  • Finely chop the green onions before adding to the mixture. 
  • Don’t overfill wontons or they will be difficult to seal and the cream cheese will ooze out during frying. 
  • When folding the buffalo chicken wontons, don’t over moisten the edges or the wontons can become soggy.
  • Add a light coating of oil to your prep area to prevent the wontons from sticking to your work surface. 
  • Cover the filled and folded wontons with a damp paper towel while you continue working. This will prevent them from drying out. 
  • When you air fryer wontons, leave space between them so they don’t stick together and become chewy.
  • Spray the wontons with oil on both sides to get a nice crispy coating.
