Buffalo Chicken Egg Rolls, Anyone ?
So, my girlfriend and I are big foodie people, we love trying food, eating food, and once we get on something we do not let it go. One of the restaurants we go to in town has this appetizer called buffalo chicken egg rolls, this my favorite appetizer of all time, and yesterday we decided to make them. Actually, she made them for me since she does not eat chicken or meat. It is the perfect football afternoon snack. Here is how we made them. You have to first start by buying egg roll shells, which you can buy at many grocery stores they are usually in the produce section. Take a 8 ounce chicken breast and poach it in boiling water with some salt. While that is cooking lay out the shells on a clean counter top. Once the chicken is cooked pull it a part and mix it with a hot sauce of your choice. Then lay some chicken on the shell towards one end so you can eventually fold the shell. On top of the chicken lay some slaw, lettuce, or cabbage of your choice for a slight crunch. Then sprinkle with blue cheese before rolling. Then you must role them and fold them into a closed egg roll shape. Lay them on a baking rack which is on top of a cookie sheet, this will allow them to cook on all sides. I also recommend that you brush them with some olive oil to give them a crisp shell. Then back them in a 375 degree oven for about 15 to 20 minutes or until brown. Remove from oven and serve using your favorite ranch dressing as a dipping sauce. These were awesome and by baking them you keep them a tad better for you instead of frying. This makes about 14 rolls. Hope you enjoy!
