Serve up a classic Buffalo chicken appetizer with a crescent twist on Game Day!

Ingredients

4
oz cream cheese (half of 8-oz package), softened
1/4
cup hot sauce or red pepper sauce
2 1/2
cups chopped cooked chicken (1/2-inch pieces)
1
cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (4 oz)
2
cans (8 oz each) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1/3
cup crumbled blue cheese

Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. In small bowl, mix cream cheese and hot sauce until smooth. Mix in chicken and shredded cheese just until combined.
  • 2 Unroll both cans of dough; separate into 16 triangles. On ungreased large cookie sheet, arrange triangles in ring so short sides of triangles form a 5-inch circle in center. Dough will overlap. Dough ring should look like a sun.
  • 3 Spoon cream cheese mixture on the half of each triangle closest to center of ring. Top with blue cheese crumbles.
  • 4 Bring each dough triangle up over filling, tucking dough under bottom layer of dough to secure it. Repeat around ring until entire filling is enclosed (some filling might show a little).
  • 5 Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until dough is golden brown and thoroughly baked. Cool 5 to 10 minutes before cutting into serving slices.

Expert Tips

Add a bit of fresh to your appetizer; serve with celery and carrot sticks and a side of blue cheese dressing.

You can use leftover cut-up cooked chicken, or pick up a deli rotisserie chicken at the supermarket. Remove chicken from bones, and cut into bite-size pieces.
