pinned it. tried it. {recipe: buffalo chicken wraps}

11 Sep
Dan and I both love buffalo chicken anything. So when I saw this recipe for these delicious looking buffalo chicken rolls from Can You Stay for Dinner, I knew I wanted to try them.

buffalo chicken rolls by canyoustayfordinner.com
{ingredients}
  • 12 egg roll wrappers (roughly 4 square inches)
  • 1 cup cooked and shredded chicken (6 ounces)
  • 1/2- 2/3 cup Frank’s Red Hot Sauce
  • 1 cup crumbled blue cheese (4 ounces)
  • 1 cup broccoli slaw or cole slaw (dry)
  • Small bowl of water
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Blue cheese dressing, for serving
{instructions}
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lay egg roll wrappers on a clean work surface. In a small bowl, stir chicken* (see note below) and hot sauce until well coated, using more or less sauce depending on your spice preference. The meat should be moist with sauce.

  • Begin by placing one tablespoon of the broccoli slaw on the diagonal of the bottom right corner of one of the wrappers. Next, place 2 tablespoons of shredded spicy chicken evenly on top of the slaw. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the blue cheese crumbles over the chicken. Do not overfill.
  • To fold: Fold the bottom right corner over the stuffing mixture so that it covers it completely, with the tip of the corner now pointing to the center of the egg roll wrapper. Fold in the bottom left corner, followed by the right, so that you now have formed an envelope. Roll the wrap upward one time, leaving the top left corner open. Wet your index finger in the small bowl of water and press to moisten the top left corner. Now fold that down on top of the filled roll, sealing it like you would an envelope.
  • Repeat with remaining rolls.

  • Place the rolls on a wire rack set on top of a cookie sheet (or just on a greased cookie sheet) coated with nonstick cooking spray. Spritz each roll evenly with nonstick cooking spray. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the rolls crisp and turn a light golden brown.

  • *Note: To make the chicken, place 1/2 lb of uncooked chicken breast in a small pot and fill with enough water just to cover it. Bring to a boil on your stovetop, reduce the heat slightly, then simmer for about 12 minutes, or until cooked through. Drain and let cool before shredding with two forks, pulling against the grain of the meat.

I loved these wraps. I’m pretty sure we ate them all because they were so amazing. They are definitely something we will make again, probably very soon. I used ranch dressing on my plate to eat them with. Dan used blue cheese. I like either but we didn’t have a lot of blue cheese left so I let Dan use it.
I looked for egg roll wrappers at the grocery store but couldn’t find any. I decided to just use wheat wraps instead. Also, Dan and I don’t really like cole slaw so I just left it out. I would love to try these with the egg roll wrappers but I just need to find them. Any ideas where I could find them?
The way they explained to cook the chicken in this recipe surprised me. I’ve never cooked chicken that way but I tried it and it actually worked pretty well. It was a fairly simple way to cook chicken. Obviously you could cook the chicken any way you usually do.
In the end, these were super easy to make and I would definitely recommend these wraps/rolls to anyone who loves buffalo chicken.

    Looks good! So what is the definition of buffalo chicken exactly? It’s not a phrase that gets around Australia much :)

    I find that a lot of bigger chain grocery stores have egg roll and wonton wrappers – they’re generally stocked in the fresh vegetable section, near the herbs or refrigerated salad dressings a lot of the time. Stumbled on your post as I’m planning on making these tonight – I’m excited!
