It’s football season here in Kentuckiana, but these Buffalo Chicken Wontons will have you cheering for the best team around: GO AIR FRYER! GO!
A few months ago, Shaun and I purchased this air fryer. This contraption uses hot air (like an oven) that cooks and essentially “fries” food (or bakes!) without the use of oil. Just a spritz on most items is all you need. There’s no need to “preheat” which cuts down on time and the electric bill (love how it doesn’t heat up the whole house!) It has replaced our oven, deep fryer, and in most cases, our microwave. (It reheats leftovers like a dream (think pizza! … and grilled meats!)
This thing has been the most used appliance (besides my Vitamix) in our kitchen. It practically stays up on the counter unless we have company, which more than likely gets brought up in conversation and I pull it out of the cabinet to show it off. Not to brag, but I’ve probably sold more air fryers by how much I promote it on Instagram, and I don’t even work for them! I just love it … and most importantly, Shaun does too. Granted we use it for different things; me, roasting veggies, chicken, potstickers, these wontons. Him, onion rings, french fries, tater tots, brats and sausages.
This thing is a champ. It can tackle anything and I’m constantly asking myself “Will. It. Air Fryyyyyyy?” and 9/10 the answer is YES!
So there’s my review, haha. Now onto these wontons! They couldn’t be simpler. Shaun even took a peek as to what was going on in the air fryer and he thought I bought them! I said, “No sir, I just made these!” He was highly impressed. Now, it’s your turn to impress your friends on game day!

• 8 wonton wrappers
• 2oz precooked, finely shredded chicken (I use a rotisserie chicken)
• 1 small scallion, chopped (optional)
• 1-2 tbsp buffalo wing sauce (more or less for sauciness)
• 1 tbsp water
• In a small bowl, mix together chicken, scallion, and buffalo wing sauce.
• Take a wonton wrapper (in the shape of a diamond ◊) and place a heaping teaspoon of the buffalo chicken mixture in the upper middle half.
• Wet the edges of the wonton by dipping your finger in the water and running it along the edges.
• Fold the bottom corner up so it meets the top corner.
• Press and seal all the edges shut.
• Set aside and make the remaining 7 wontons.
• Spray each side lightly with cooking spray.
• Place them in the air fryer* basket and cook on 400°F for 4-5 minutes.
• Keep and eye on them and shake the basket often to ensure they don’t stick and to evenly brown.
• Once they have a crispy brown outside, they’re done!
• Serve with a blue cheese or ranch dressing, cucumbers, carrots, celery, etc.
*I haven’t, but you could also bake these by preheating the oven to 400°F. Place them on a baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes. Again, keeping an eye on them.
