Chicken Cheese balls

Submitted by Lisa

I had some left over cooked/shredded chicken in the fridge and decided to make these to go along with the easy risotto recipe.
Very quick and easy to make.  You can adjust the flavor by adding a little bbq sauce, or buffalo sauce to the chicken mixture.
They have a really nice crunch!  


1 rotissere chicken (picked apart and chopped small)
1/4 c green onion chopped
1 1/2 c cheddar cheese shredded
salt/pepper to taste

panko bread crumbs
3 eggs


1.  Shred and chop the chicken, put in bowl.
2.  Add cheese, green onions, and salt and pepper.  Mix well
3.  Make balls the size of golf balls and press them firmly together
4.  Gently roll them into the flour, then the egg, then the panko crumbs
(my pictures for this step were black!  So, use 3 different bowls, one with flour, one for the eggs with a splash of water-whisk them, and one for the panko crumbs)

5.  Set aside and let sit for 5 to 10 min
6.  Heat 1/2 inch oil in frying pan.  4 at a time place them gently in the oil and rotate as they cook, until golden brown.
7.  Place them on a paper towel to dry.

**They cook quickly so don't walk away from them!  Adjust heat as you need to in order to prevent them from burning.**
