Lets talk about the weather. What is going on? Tuesday it was 65 degrees, Wednesday it was 70. Yesterday was cold and very windy, and today we have snow.
Talk about a roller coaster! I don’t like winter, but I would much rather have some predictable weather than weather that is allllll over the place! The forecast looks like it is going to even out, and be right back to normal temps for
January FEBRUARY! Yikes! How is it already February?
Continuing on with my theme of the week, I have another Super Bowl party snack to share with you! I couldn’t let the Super Bowl come and go without giving you a Buffalo Chicken recipe. I’ve told you before about the chicken wing eating contest I participated in. (<—click to see an embarrassing picture of me with wing sauce all over my face!) Despite that ordeal, I still think Buffalo Wings are one of the best football snacks.
These roll-ups take all the delicious, spicy flavor of a wing, and roll it up into a neat little package. The chicken is spicy, the blue cheese is tangy, and a slather of ranch dressing cools it down and brings it all together. And, bonus: no messy wing sauce all over your face!
Buffalo Chicken Roll-Ups
- 1 package crescent rolls
- 1/4 cup ranch dressing
- 1 large chicken breast, cooked and shredded (about 1 1/2 cups)
- 1/4 cup Buffalo Sauce or Franks Hot Sauce
- 2 oz crumbled blue cheese
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- On a flat surface, unroll the crescent roll dough. Try not to separate the perforations in the dough. Once the dough is rolled out, pinch together all the seams and perforations of the dough to create one big rectangle sheet (as opposed to 8 smaller triangles).
- Spread the ranch dressing evenly on the dough.
- In a small bowl, combine the cooked, shredded chicken with the hot sauce or wing sauce. Mix to evenly cost the chicken.
- Spread the chicken in an even layer on top of the ranch dressing.
- Sprinkle the blue cheese crumbles evenly on top of the chicken.
- Beginning with the long end of the dough, start rolling it up, like a jelly roll.
- Continue rolling the dough until you have a long cylinder, with the chicken, cheese and dressing inside. It is OK if the seams start to come apart. Just pinch them together again, and keep on rolling.
- Slice the roll in half. Then slice each half in half again (you will have 4 sections now). Slice each section in half again (8 section now), and then once more in half (ending with 16 pieces).
- Lay each piece flat on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Sprinkle the tops of the roll-ups with a little bit of cheddar cheese.
- Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until the dough is golden brown, and the cheese is melted.
I promised a Ravens’ themed recipe, and I haven’t forgotten! Stay tuned for a special weekend post!
