Ingredients

  • 2 oz cream cheese (quarter of 8-oz package), softened
  • 2 tablespoons Buffalo wing sauce
  • 1 cup chopped cooked chicken (1/2-inch pieces)
  • 1/2 cup shredded Colby-Jack cheese (2 oz)
  • 1 can (8 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Original Crescent Rolls (8 Count)
  • 3 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese

Steps

  • 1
    Cut 8-inch round of cooking parchment paper. Place in bottom of air fryer basket. In small bowl, mix cream cheese and wing sauce until smooth. Mix in chicken and shredded cheese just until combined.
  • 2
    Unroll dough; separate into 8 triangles. On parchment in air fryer basket, arrange triangles in ring so short sides of triangles form a 2-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
    Set air fryer to 325°F; cook 8 to 9 minutes or until top of dough is golden brown. Place a large plate over air fryer basket, and invert. Discard parchment paper.
  • 6
    Carefully slide crescent ring back into air fryer basket, bottom side up. Cook 5 to 7 minutes longer, or until top of dough is golden brown. Place large plate over air fryer basket, and invert. Remove from air fryer. Cool 5 minutes before cutting.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To play up the Buffalo theme, serve with celery and carrot sticks and ranch or blue cheese dressing.
  • tip 2
    Air fryer temperature control settings vary according to brand and model. If your air fryer does not have the exact temperature setting called for in the recipe, consult your manual for suggested temperature settings. This recipe was tested in 3.7-quart air fryers. If using a larger machine, cooking times may be shorter.
  • tip 3
    Our recipes do not call for preheating your air fryer. Just set the temperature, and start. Never preheat with parchment paper alone.
