*Healthy* Buffalo Chicken Roll Recipe

Sooo this recipe is actually supposed to be an appetizer
But it sounded so good that I decided to make it for dinner one night
Not only is it completely delish, but it's actually very healthy at only 100 calories per roll!

We had them for dinner, Hubs had them for leftovers
And then I whipped up a second batch for him from the leftover egg roll wrappers for lunch this week
He came back from work saying that he shared with coworkers and they raved about it
{and that I'm the best wife ever..obvies}
And I'm thinking about doing a slightly less healthy version {read: fried} for an upcoming partay


*Healthy* Buffalo Chicken Rolls

Ingredients
10 egg roll wrappers
1 - 2 chicken breasts
1/2- 2/3 cup hot sauce
1 cup crumbly blue cheese
1 cup cole slaw
{the dry stuff that's by the bagged lettuce...
it took me forever to figure this out in the grocery store}
Blue cheese dressing, for dippin'


First, you need to cook the chicken.
Shred it up, and toss it with that tangy smellin' hot sauce.


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees 

If you have enough room, you can lay out your egg roll wrappers and do this assembly line style
I {obviously} do not, so I did them one at a time.
Lay out the wrapper and put some cole slaw on there, towards one corner of the wrapper


Top it with chicken...


And some cheesey cheese.


Fold the bottom up, then the left and right corners in, and rolllllll it up!
Dab your finger in water and rub it along the edge to seal.


And repeat!


Now, pop a cooling rack on top of a baking sheet and you're almost ready to go.
Spray everything down with some nonstick, then put your little rolls on top
Give them a little shower of the spray too, for a little extra moisture.


Pop them in the oven for 12 - 15 minutes, or until they've got a nice golden brown tan.


Pull them out and serve with blue cheese dressing.
And watch your husband melt in admiration of your fantastic {and healthy!} cooking skills.

  1. Wow, those look fairly easy... I envisioned anything in egg roll-like style being really difficult for whatever reason. I bet my husband would love this, and more for him because I am not big on buffalo chicken or hot wing sauce.

    1. it would be ok cold too...i think not quite as yummy as hot, but once you bake them they're usually ok refrigerated and don't get too mushy. good luck!

  8. YU-UM. I love baking egg rolls. I love how they stay pretty crisp as leftovers too. My mom always fried them then I got married and figured out that you can also bake them! *You learn so many new things when you learn how to cook to feed a family lol*
