Step 1

Have oil heated to 350F.

Step 2

Pick the meat from the chicken and discard the skin. Place the chicken in a large bowl and add the hot sauce, pepper, cheese, and scallions and toss to combine. Roll the chicken into 2-ounce balls, about the size of a golf ball.

Step 3

Place the flour, eggs and bread crumbs in 2 separate bowls. Roll each ball in the flour, then the egg, then the bread crumbs. Set aside.

Step 4

When the oil is hot fry the chicken balls in batches. Cook for about 2 minutes per batch. Remove the chicken to paper towel lined plate to drain the excess oil.

Step 5

To make the sauce, combine all ingredients in a large bowl and adjust the seasoning if necessary. Serve the chicken alongside the dipping sauce.
