Buffalo Chicken Rolls

Share Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Email This Pin This

As I sit here writing, my son is yelling at me. And by yelling I mean whining. And by whining I mean squeaking. He is teething. His body is growing. And he has some potty issues {I'll leave out the details}. These are dark days, indeed.

It's funny the stuff you'll justify when enduring hell on earth these adorable milestones. The other night after an especially long day, I decided these buffalo chicken rolls would be dinner. Tim knew better than to ask questions. Mamma wanted her buffalo fix. And because they're baked, I hereby dub them healthy. Because I make the rules, and I pay the bills. Well, technically, Tim makes the money, but I do the actual bill-paying.

Potato, tomato.


Ingredients:
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • Frank's Red Hot Sauce
  • 1/4 cup Ranch dressing {plus extra for dipping}
  • 2 packs egg roll wraps {but it only takes about 1 1/2 packs}
  • Feta cheese
  • Mozzarella {or Italian} cheese




Directions:


Pre-heat your oven to 400° F. Shred the chicken (I cooked it in the crock pot on low for 6-8 hours), adding extra Frank's hot sauce to taste.




Mix-in the ranch dressing.




Here's a picture of the egg roll wraps you'll use. I couldn't find them, even when the kind Walmart employee told me they were on the "wet wall." Umm...okay. Twenty minutes later I return just to ask her to walk me to them. #jobsecurity




Lay out the egg roll wrap.




Place about a tablespoon-full of shredded chicken on the wrap. As we start, it's important to emphasize that you should not over-stuff them.




Toss on the Italian cheese {or whatever cheese you chose}.







Then the feta.




Fold the bottom corner over the filling.




Fold over the left corner tightly.




Then the next corner and roll towards the remaining corner.




Dip your {clean} finger in water and press on the last corner. 




Fold it over. The water will make it stick.




Place them on a non-stick baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until they are golden brown and crispy.




Wam-bam-thank-you-ma'am. The picture above is how they look when flipped over.




Serve warm with ranch dipping sauce. If you want to get crazy, splash some of Frank's hot sauce into the ranch and mix it to get a spicy ranch.

Now go take these to a quiet location and enjoy. And think of me. And the chaos I'm currently living in.


Love and buffalo,

  4. Can they be made ahead of time and baked the next day? Can they be reheated? I want to take them to a pot luck. I though about making them putting them in frodge and reheating in crock pot but I don't want them to get soggy.

    1. Freeze them immediately & then pop them in oven frozen. It will take them longer to cook but you won't have the soggy problem!

  6. Does the hot sauce make these really spicy?

    1. Hi, Kali! Thanks for dropping by. I didn't find these spicy with the hot sauce. I'd maybe try a few drops separately to see how you react to it so you know how much to put on the rolls.

  8. I mixed the chicken with some shredded cole slaw veggies and it made it a well rounded meal, thanks for the idea!

  9. Thank you so much for sharing! I love finger food but I am always really grossed out by the surprise meat that could be used in the store bought packages (just a silly quirk of mine). I used cheddar instead since its what I had in my fridge and they turned out fantastic. We also froze a couple for the next day and they were still great. I will definitely come back for more inspiration!

    1. I'm the same way! Lol so glad to hear someone else is grossed out by frozen egg rolls. I'm not alone :-)

  10. I'm making these today! In case anyone else has trouble finding the egg roll wraps, my local grocery store (Kroger) had them in the Organic/Health Food refrigerated section. I looked everywhere trying to find them, and just happened to go there in a last ditch effort before leaving. It was the same brand and everything. Can't wait to try them! I will also be adding cole slaw veggie mix to make them a more well-balanced all-in-one meal. :)
