A lighter, healthier twist on a classic appetizer recipe; Skinny Buffalo Chicken Wonton Cups done in 30 minutes!

So, can you tell that I have been a little obsessed with chicken wings and buffalo sauce lately?

Last week I posted Tangy Honey Mustard Wings and Wednesday I posted Classic Buffalo Chicken Wings … lets just say its all in the name of the Super Bowl and call it a day.

But I do have to say that this is the first Super Bowl in a long time that I REALLY could care less to watch and that’s saying a lot. In my opinion both the teams that are playing this year are dirty teams and don’t deserve to be there. It should have been the Colts & Cowboys!

Ok, that’s enough of my boo-whoing!

Back on to Game Day Appetizers!

So, have you had Buffalo Chicken Dip before? A couple of years ago it blew up on Pinterest and became an culinary sensation overnight! Part of the reason the people loved it is the amount of prep time. You literally just throw chicken, buffalo sauce, ranch, cream cheese, and cheddar cheese in a crock pot turn it on and the crock pot does all the work. Serve it with chips and easy peasy!

Only problem is it’s fatty bo batty, especially because this stuff is addicting. If you think you can stop at just three chips your fooling yourself! You will always end up with 15-20!

Why do I talk about all this?

Well, I’m doing you a favor today! (your welcome)

        How do you get your wontons so golden? I just tried this recipe and loved it, but my wontons were a little bit dark brown and dusty looking if that makes sense.
