Buffalo Stuffed Chicken & Goat Balls :)

HAHAHAHAHA!!!! You like the title of this post huh? You think it sounds YUMMY! :) Haha. Let me explain. The Buffalo Stuffed Chicken is like chicken cordon blue with blue cheese and buffalo sauce, and the Goat Balls are goat cheese truffles! See, they're yummy! Enjoy!

Not the greatest pictures of the chicken... sorry...


4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

4 slices deli ham

½ cup blue cheese crumbles

Salt and pepper

1 cup flour

¼-⅓ cup cornstarch (eyeball it)

2 large egg whites, beaten

1½ cups breadcrumbs

3 tablespoons butter, melted

About 3 tablespoons buffalo or hot sauce

Canola or other high temperature oil, for shallow frying

Split the breasts open and cut them across horizontally. Pound the meat out a little, then stuff the breasts with the ham and cheese. Fold the chicken over and press the edges together to secure the stuffed breasts. Season with salt and pepper and coat first in the flour mixed with cornstarch, then the egg whites, then the breadcrumbs tossed with the melted butter and mixed with hot sauce.

Heat a shallow layer of oil about a quarter-inch deep in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, cook the chicken on each side until golden and cooked through, about 6 minutes on each side. Drain the chicken briefly on paper towels and serve.

Goat Cheese Truffles

12 oz goat cheese (or chevre), softened

8 oz cream cheese, softened

3 green onions, finely chopped

¼ tsp paprika

¼ tsp cayenne

Toppings- toasted almonds, paprika, parsley, etc.


Combine goat cheese, cream cheese, green onions, paprika & cayenne. Divide and roll into balls, then roll in the toppings. Serve with crackers.

Now... funny story. I brought this to our "office Christmas party", and I totally did not expect this, but everyone just took a bite out of them and ate the cheese plain! I said "EWWWW!!!!" Get a cracker!!! EAT IT ON A CRACKER!! I can't imagine eating this without a cracker, but they liked it plain... so eat however you enjoy it! :)
