Buffalo Chicken Rolls

Now onto Super Bowl Spectacular!!!!
I am sorry I am so late, but these were some of the best appetizers to ever come out of my kitchen.....AND the AWESOME NY/NJ GIANTS WON THE SUPERBOWL!!!
What a day!
I cooked like a champ, ate light a champ, and then was so happy for everyone to go home before the game started so we could curl up on the couch and cheer our heads off. These will be featured heavily in the future because they were so simple and the taste was phenomenal.
You bring these and people will think you are a genius of the Buffalo Chicken Variety
I don't even know what that means but trust me, you bring these and people will talk!

The picture kind of stinks but I literally shot one picture before I fed the hungry crowd. I did end up cutting them in 1/2 because they were steaming hot and then you could dip a little easier.

Buffalo Chicken Rolls

makes 12

NOTE: I probably over stuffed a few and the points of the celery broke through the egg roll wrapper. Since there were plenty of wrappers in the pack, I just started with a new wrapper. Next time I will stuff less, so the amounts may slightly vary with yours, but really it doesn't matter, you can easily make more or less rolls depending on how you like them

12 egg roll wrappers

1 ½-2 cup cooked and shredded chicken

1/2- 2/3 cup Frank’s Red Hot Sauce

1 crumbled blue cheese

1 cup sliced celery, really really thinly

Small bowl of water

Nonstick cooking spray

Blue cheese dressing (I also added ½ cup of blue cheese crumbles to it) , for serving


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lay egg roll wrappers on a clean work surface. In a small bowl, stir chicken 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 celery on the diagonal of the bottom right corner of one of the wrappers. Next, place 2-3 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.
