The Pizza Dough Project
Buffalo Chicken Rolls Perfect for Tailgating
September 11, 2014
pizza dough from Publix Bakery needs to rise for one hour
using mild sauce makes this recipe kid friendly
chicken fingers from the Publix Deli
chop the chicken into bite size pieces
adding hot sauce to the mild wing sauce lets you control the amount of heat
roll half of the pizza dough out to a rectangle 1/4" thick
after spreading the chicken mixture evenly roll the dough up like a cinnamon roll
at this point the roll can be frozen for later use or sliced and cooked immediately
Buffalo Chicken Rolls
By Buffy York
My neighbor and I are on a mission to find how many different ways we can use the pizza dough from Publix Bakery. Two weekends ago we made a few recipes and since it is football season I thought I would kick off this “Pizza Dough Project” with a great recipe for tailgating. Buffalo Chicken Rolls have all the qualities you would look for in tailgate food: the star of the show is buffalo chicken, they can be made ahead and they transport easily. Clearly I used Publix pizza dough for this recipe but Pillsbury also makes one. If you are super ambitious and feel the need to make your own dough, go for it. The internet is filled with recipes.
Buffalo Chicken Rolls
(makes 24 standard or 48 mini muffins)
1 Publix Bakery pizza dough
1 onion chopped
2 T butter
8 chicken fingers chopped
3/4 cup buffalo wing sauce
4 oz. blue cheese
hot sauce to taste (optional)
Let the Pizza Dough rise for one hour. Saute the chopped onion in butter in a skillet over medium heat until transparent. Stir in the chopped chicken (we used chicken fingers from the Publix Deli), buffalo wing sauce and hot sauce and heat for 5 minutes. We used Texas Pete’s Extra Mild Wing Sauce and then added hot sauce to control the heat level. Remove skillet from the heat. Divide your pizza dough in half and roll out to a rectangle about 1/4″ thick. Spread 1/2 of the chicken mixture evenly onto the dough and sprinkle with 1/2 of the blue cheese. Roll up the pizza dough like a cinnamon roll and pinch the ends. Repeat all of the steps with the other half of the dough. At this point you can wrap the rolls in plastic wrap and freeze until you are ready to cook, or cut the dough roll into 2 inch slices for standard muffin tins or 1 inch slices for mini-muffin tins. Place the dough slices in the well greased muffin tins and bake in an oven preheated to 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
If you choose to freeze the roll let thaw on the counter for several hours and follow the steps for slicing and baking the rolls.
