Buffalo Egg Rolls

BUFFALO EGG ROLLS

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 stick of butter
  • 3/4 C wing sauce
  • 1 skinless boneless chicken breast, shredded (or roasted and cubed)
  • 1 t celery flake
  • 1 pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 pinch of red pepper flake
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 block of softened Neufchatel or Cream cheese
  • 1 package of wonton wraps (found in the produce section of any grocery store)
  • 1 whisked egg white
  1. In a medium skillet, melt butter and add hot sauce.
  2. Add shredded chicken breast, celery flake, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and red pepper flake.
  3. Simmer on low for 10 minutes until slightly reduced.
  4. Combine with Cream cheese.
  5. Place wonton wrap diagonally on your work surface.
  6. Add 1-2 T of chicken to center, allowing excess sauce to drain off.
  7. Brush egg whites along the surface and fold like an envelope.
  8. Fill a small sauce pan just under 1/2 way with canola oil.
  9. Heat over medium high heat until the oil reaches 375 degrees.
  10. Carefully add the egg rolls and cook 1-2 at a time (adding more will decrease the oil temperature and prevent the proper crisping). 
  11. Cook until the egg rolls turn a golden brown (about 4-5 minutes)
  12. Remove and drain on a paper towel or coffee filter
