DIRECTIONS

  • Place cracker crumbs in a large bowl and set to the side.
  • Cut up and dice chicken breasts into small pieces and put in a large bowl.
  • Add the cream cheese and remaining ingredients to the chicken and mix well and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
  • Heat cooking oil to about 350 to 375 degrees in a 4 quart sauce pan. (Probably an older one you don't mind frying in -- ) If you have a deep fryer with a basket then excellent but who has that? LOL.
  • With a regular spoon scoop out enough mixture to make a 1 1/2 inch ball and dip into the cracker crumbs and cover completely with crumbs. Then gently drop in hot oil until golden brown( about 2 to 3 minutes.).
  • Remove from hot oil and place on vented pan with paper towels to drain oil.
  • Let cool about 5 minutes and enjoy!
