Ingredients
  • 1 pound cooked chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup buffalo sauce
  • 1/4 cup ranch dressing
  • green onions
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese
  • garlic powder
  • 16 ounces egg roll wrappers
  • Vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Dash of cayenne
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)
Instructions
  1. Start by making the star of the show – the zesty buffalo sauce. In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat, then stir in the hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, cayenne, salt, and pepper. Let it simmer for a few minutes until the flavors meld together perfectly. Set it aside to cool while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the shredded chicken, buffalo sauce, ranch dressing, sliced green onions, softened cream cheese, shredded cheddar cheese, and optional garlic powder or onion powder. Mix everything together until it's well combined and all those delicious flavors are evenly distributed.

  3. Now comes the fun part – assembling the egg rolls! Lay out an egg roll wrapper on a clean surface in a diamond shape. Place a generous spoonful of the buffalo chicken mixture in the center of the wrapper. Fold the bottom corner of the wrapper over the filling, tucking it snugly. Fold the sides of the wrapper towards the center, then roll tightly to seal the egg roll. Repeat this process with the remaining wrappers and filling until you've created a tempting batch of buffalo chicken egg rolls just waiting to be cooked.

  4. When it comes to cooking these mouthwatering morsels, you've got options. If you're craving that extra crunch, you can fry them up to golden perfection. Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or large pot to 350°F (175°C), then fry the egg rolls in batches until they're crispy and irresistible, about 3-4 minutes per batch. Alternatively, if you're looking for a lighter option, you can bake them in the oven. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C), place the assembled egg rolls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, lightly brush or spray them with oil, then bake for 15-20 minutes until they're golden brown and crispy.

  5. Once your buffalo chicken egg rolls are cooked to perfection, it's time to serve them up and enjoy every delicious bite. Arrange them on a platter alongside some cooling yogurt ranch, extra buffalo sauce for dipping, and a colorful array of chopped carrots, celery, and fresh parsley for garnish. Then sit back, relax, and watch as your guests dive into these irresistible appetizers with gusto.
