Everybody do the happy dance. Football season is here.

My favorite thing about football season is the abundance of appetizers that can be found on dinner tables and sports bars near and far. I’ll fill my plate with stuffed mushrooms, crab cakes, spinach dip and more. And Buffalo chicken wings will always find a spot on my plate. They have a special place in my heart. ♥

My first appetizer recipe of the football season includes wing sauce in the ingredient list. Chopped cooked chicken is mixed with mayonnaise, diced cucumbers, ranch seasoning and wing sauce. The chicken salad is then stuffed into crispy fillo cups. Wing sauce is drizzled over each cup and fresh chopped cilantro is sprinkled on top.

Recipe type: appetizer
Serves: 7
Ingredients
  • 2 C chopped cooked chicken (I used leftover grilled chicken and chopped it in my food processor).
  • ¾ C diced cucumber
  • ½ C mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp buffalo wing sauce, plus more for garnish
  • 1 tsp Ranch dressing seasoning mix
  • Chipped fresh cilantro for garnish
  • 15-20 mini fillo shells (1 box contains 15 shells)
Instructions
  1. Bake the fillo shells according to package directions. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  2. Combine the chicken, cucumbers, mayonnaise, wing sauce and ranch seasoning mix. Mix well.
  3. Spoon ½ tbsp of the chicken mixture into each fillo cup. Drizzle the chicken salad with wing sauce and then garnish with cilantro.
Notes
You will probably have some leftover chicken salad. You can either make more fillo cups or you can use it to top crackers or make sandwiches. Sliders would be perfect for using up leftovers!

      Appetizer are perfectly fine in place of an entree! With that being said, I will NEVER turn down a delicious entree! :) Thanks for stopping by, Graham.

      Haha, I only know about Football because my boyfriend told me what all of the plays meant. But I’m much more interested in the food and drinks! Thanks so much for stopping by and for the pin too, Serene!

      Haha, I’m not really into it that much. I like going to games because there is food and beer at them. And I like football parties because, hello, more food and beer. ;) Thanks for stopping by, Francesca!

      Hi Terrie,

      Yes, you can make these with wonton wrappers. Bake the wonton wrappers first and then stuff them with the buffalo chicken salad. Let me know if you have any other questions!
