THESE BUFFALO CHICKEN PUFF PASTRY POCKETS ARE A QUICK TREAT TO WHIP UP FOR GAME-DAY PARTIES AND TAILGATES. ONLY A HANDFUL OF INGREDIENTS AND SUPER EASY!
Do you love buffalo wings and game day football appetizers? Well then these are a must try for you! I mean I know buffalo wings are amazing but give these a go and you will be amazing at how delicious they are too!
I had the idea for these after I ended up with half a rotisserie chicken leftover from dinner. As I always do, I pulled it off the bone and shredded it before putting it away. Shredded rotisserie chicken is one of the best blank canvases for recipes- and a total time saver to boot.
I decided to bring all the flavors of buffalo wings into a tasty (and decidedly less messy!) snack food- perfect for weekend snacks, tailgating, or game watch parties. With only six ingredients, they are simple and easy to make, but (as always!) packing a huge punch of flavor.
I was completely in love after the first bite. They were awesome! The puff pastry was buttery, light, and crispy, and packed with spicy chicken and crunchy green onions. The combination of tastes and textures was completely phenomenal! My sister-in-law also suggested possibly adding some chopped celery into the mix for even more crunch. If you try it that way, report back- I’d love to hear how it is.
I cut my puff pastry into 9 squares, but I think you could make “mini” versions of these and cut each sheet of puff pastry into 16 squares too. If you go this route, make sure not to over stuff them- you’ll probably only be able to add a rounded tablespoon of filling to each square.
If you aren’t a blue cheese fan, you could stir in 1/4 cup ranch dressing instead, and/or a shredded melting cheese like cheddar, mozzarella, or a Mexican blend.
Dipping ideas: jalapeño sour cream, ranch, chunky blue cheese dressing, guacamole- maybe even French onion dip!
These need to go onto your next Thursday/Friday/Saturday/Sunday/Monday rotation. You will definitely be the MVP.
