These Buffalo chicken wonton cups are a little different from most Instant Pot recipes because you’re starting out with leftover Instant Pot Buffalo chicken dip and turning it into a completely different appetizer. It’s a creative way to use up leftover chicken, and it’s definitely a quick and easy appetizer that you can throw together at the last minute.

I almost didn’t call this recipe Instant Pot Buffalo chicken cups because you technically don’t need to have an pressure cooker to make them. You can use the leftovers from Crock-Pot Buffalo chicken dip or even start from scratch with shredded Buffalo chicken or rotisserie chicken and a bottle of Frank’s ( or your favorite hot sauce) if you want.

But seriously, you guys, making Buffalo chicken dip in the Instant Pot is so much faster and easier. Even if you don’t plan ahead and you need a last minute appetizer for game day or parties, you can whip these Buffalo chicken cups up in no time.

These handheld appetizers are fun to eat, and they’re easy to make in a muffin tin. They’re perfect for football snacks, parties or whenever you get the munchies!

How to make Instant Pot Buffalo chicken wonton cups

You can make Buffalo chicken cups in a standard 12-cup muffin tin or a mini 24-count muffin tin. I used a mini muffin tin for these since I didn’t have much leftover chicken dip to work with, and I thought mini Buffalo cups would be a little easier to eat.

Wonton wrappers are usually in the produce section of your local grocery store. I usually find them in the refrigerated section next to the pre-packaged salads and coleslaw mix.

Just arrange your wonton wrappers in the muffin tin — I like to layer two in each cup to make them sturdier. Then, add some chicken dip, and top them off with shredded mozzarella cheese.
