Buffalo Chicken Rolls
Since I am still pretty new to the world of blogging, I obviously don’t have that many posts up yet – with that said, I couldn’t help but notice that I have six dessert recipes posted to my one dinner recipe, so it is probably time for something not loaded with sugar. I first made these Buffalo Chicken Wraps a few months ago and they have since become a bi-weekly staple in our household – with the implementation of a few shortcuts from the original recipe, I have been able to cut down the total time (prep + cooking) to about 20 minutes.
So why do we love these so much? Well, they are easy (note the time involved), tasty, surprisingly healthy (about 105 calories per roll), and they refrigerate really well for lunch, dinner, or a midnight snack later in the week. Since I am only cooking for two, the ability to reheat is BIG – that makes for one less night of cooking! I hope you like these as much as I do.
- In a small bowl, mix the cooked chicken and hot sauce until well-coated. Since I like shortcuts, I buy frozen, fully cooked chicken breast strips so I can just pop them in the microwave for 3-4 minutes. When mixing in with the hot sauce, I shred the strip a little just to make them smaller and easier to roll – this is totally optional.
- Lay out the egg roll wrappers on to a clean kitchen surface. Place 1 Tbsp of Broccoli Slaw (or Cole Slaw – I prefer broccoli because it adds even a little more crunch), 2 Tbsp Chicken (or 2-3 small/shredded strips), and 1 Tbsp Blue Cheese Crumbles on the diagonal, bottom-right corner of the egg roll wrapper.
- Fold the egg roll wrapper and seal with a dab of water on the envelope flap. Repeat.
- Place the rolls on a wire rack set on top of a cookie sheet. Spray well with a non-stick cooking spray; flip rolls over, then spray again so both sides are evenly coated with non-stick cooking spray.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the rolls are crisp and turn a light, golden brown.
