Everyone in my house loves every single buffalo chicken recipe. Buffalo chicken wings, buffalo chicken tacos, buffalo chicken dip, buffalo chicken pizza, and Baked Buffalo Chicken Egg Rolls!
These are the perfect tailgate recipe for football season and guess what, they are really pretty healthy! Tieghan of Half-Baked Harvest packs the buffalo chicken filling with TONS of flavor! It starts with shredded chicken and then she adds buffalo sauce, greek yogurt, and lots and lots of herbs like: chives, dill, onion powder, garlic powder, and parsley. Then there's cheddar cheese and blue cheese. I'm telling you, that filling is like a flavor bomb!
Then you just place some filling in the egg roll wrapper and wrap it up! It's easy peasy. Tieghan bakes her egg rolls, making them much healthier (and every bit as crunchy) as fried egg rolls. These turn out so delicious and flavorful and are great dunked into some more buffalo sauce and/or some ranch.
Best of all, the egg rolls stay hot/warm for a really long time. They are best served straight from the oven while still hot, but they are still delicious when warm or at room temp. We loved them!
Baked Buffalo Chicken Egg Rolls
Adapted from Half-Baked Harvest
by Tieghan Gerard
Makes 20-22 egg rolls
1-1/2 cups cooked shredded chicken
1/3 cup plain greek yogurt
1/2 cup buffalo sauce, plus more for serving
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
2 tablespoons dried parsley
2 teaspoons dried dill
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
20-22 square egg roll wrappers
Preheat the oven to 425F. Lightly grease 2 baking sheets.
In a bowl, combine the chicken, yogurt, buffalo sauce, chives, parsley, dill, onion powder, garlic powder, and a pinch of salt. Stir in the cheeses.
To assemble, spoon 2 tablespoons of filling onto each wrapper. Brush water around the edges of the wrapper, then roll up and place on the baking sheet. Brush each roll lightly with olive oil. Transfer to the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, then flip and cook another 8-10 minutes more, or until the rolls are crisp.
Serve the egg rolls with fresh herbs, buffalo sauce, and plenty of ranch for dipping.

Now that's a greta appetizer and tailgate recipe! I couldn't get my act together in time to participate but will join the club this week. I am loving her cookbooks and recipes!ReplyDelete
A baked egg roll is an idea I can fully embrace. All the great flavors rolled into one neat package. Finger licking goodness!ReplyDelete
I also love buffalo anything but it's so hard to find veg options! Going to have to figure out a way how to make this vegetarian...ReplyDelete
