There are many different things to consider when you are throwing a party. Perhaps one thing that you would not want to leave out of the mix, however, are the appetizers. Not only do they whet people’s appetites for dinner, they also help to keep the party moving and are a very social part of the gathering. That doesn’t mean, however, that every appetizer is going to bring the same benefits to the table.
This appetizer is for Buffalo chicken bombs and if you haven’t tried anything like this before, you’re going to be amazed with how delicious they truly are. Put these on the table in front of your guests and they will disappear so quickly you will wish you had made more. This is an appetizer that will be served over and over again.
2 cups rotisserie chicken, shredded
¾ cup Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce
¼ cup green onion, sliced
½ cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
3-4 medium/large yellow onions
1 package of bacon
Additional Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce for dipping
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine the rotisserie chicken, ¾ cup Frank’s, green onion, and cheese until well-incorporated.
Cut the top and bottom off each onion, cut in half, and peel off the skin. Separate the onion into layers, then use the larger outside layers to stuff. Save the inner layers for another recipe.
Stuff the buffalo chicken mix between two onion layers, basically making an onion seal around a large buffalo chicken “meatball.”
Wrap each “bomb” with 3 slices of bacon, and secure with toothpicks.
Bake on a wire rack in a pan with sides (to catch the grease) for 30-40 minutes, or until the bacon is fully cooked.
Serve with additional Frank’s for dipping. Enjoy!
