Somebody Make Me: Buffalo Chicken Rolls

As you know, I have major feelings for Frank's Red Hot sauce, so naturally a hot pocket-esque thing that contains it would appeal to me.  Furthermore, I support food that is perfect for eating in bed while gettin' my Hulu on.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you...BUFFALO CHICKEN ROLLS! BOW DOWN TO YOUR QUEEN!

Buffalo Chicken Rolls

(adapted from Can You Stay for Dinner?)

{I didn't take step by step pictures, but you can find some great ones on Andie's blog using the above link.}

3/4 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (about 2 cups)
1 cup hot sauce
12 egg roll wrappers
1 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/2 cup celery, thinly sliced
nonstick cooking spray
blue cheese or ranch dressing, for serving

Preheat oven to 400 F. Set a wire rack inside a rimmed baking sheet and spray the rack with cooking spray.

Stir the chicken and hot sauce together in a medium bowl until moistened - you can use more or less sauce depending on how spicy you want your rolls.

Place one egg roll wrapper on a clean work surface. Add about 1 tablespoon of the celery on the diagonal of the bottom right corner. Top with about 2-3 tablespoons of the chicken, and finally some blue cheese crumbles. Be careful not to overfill the wrappers.

To fold the roll: Bring the bottom right corner up and over the filling to cover it completely and make it snug. Fold each side over to form an envelope, then roll the wrap almost all the way to the top. Wet your finger with water and moisten the top corner, then fold it over the roll, pressing to seal. Place the roll on the prepared rack.

Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.

Spray each roll lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Bake for 15-20 minutes (flipping the rolls halfway through), or until the rolls are golden brown and crisp. Allow to cool for a few minutes, then serve with either blue cheese or ranch dressing.

Whoever brings me these soon shall have my heart for a thousand years.
