Tips and Tricks

  • Use cold chicken wing dip. It makes it easier to form the balls.
  • Make sure you freeze the balls before coating with bread crumbs. This makes the balls stay together when frying.
  • If using your air fryer make sure to spray each ball with cooking spray or olive oil.
  • If frying on the stove top use a cast iron pan or a deep fryer.
