What You'll Need

  • 1 (12-ounce) package frozen macaroni and cheese, thawed
  • 1/2 cup diced cooked chicken
  • 2 tablespoons Buffalo wing sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese dressing

What to Do

  1. Line 2 baking sheets with wax paper. In a medium bowl, combine macaroni and cheese, chicken, and wing sauce; mix well. Place in refrigerator 15 minutes to chill. Using a small ice cream scoop, melon baller, or teaspoon, shape mixture into 1-inch balls and place on baking sheets. Freeze 2 hours or until frozen solid.
  2. In a shallow dish, beat egg and water. In another shallow dish, combine bread crumbs, garlic powder, and pepper.
  3. In a deep saucepan over medium heat, heat oil until hot, but not smoking. Dip frozen balls into egg wash then roll in bread crumb mixture. In small batches, fry balls 3 to 5 minutes or until golden and center is hot. (Keep remaining balls frozen until ready to fry.) Drain on a paper towel-lined plate and serve immediately with dressing.

This is the most disgusting dish Mr. Food has ever made, and he has made many. Everyone should know by now that re-heated chicken takes on a funky taste, professionally called WOF, for Warmed Over Flavor.
