Buffalo Chicken Egg Rolls

The Wisconsin Badgers made it into the NCAA Tournament again this year, so tonight Jacki and I decided to make some bar food watch the gave against Syracuse. Nothing says bar food to me more than anything that has buffalo sauce on it and something deep fried. Although these aren’t fried, you will never know! 

Buffalo Chicken Egg Rolls

(Revised from Adventures in Cooking)

Ingredients:

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/3 cup Frank’s Hot Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons shredded cheese (I didn’t have any blue cheese)
  • 1 cup cabbage slaw mix
  • 1 package egg roll wrappers
  • non-stick cooking spray
  • water, in a little dish

Method:

Bake the chicken breast, let them cool and shred the meat into a bowl. Stir in cream cheese, hot sauce and shredded cheese. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray and set aside. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

To make the egg rolls, lay an egg roll wrapper out on the counter to have a corner point towards you. Place 1 tablespoon of the slaw mix in the lower middle to the wrapper, top with 2 tablespoons of the chicken mixture. Fold in the outside corners to the middle.

Dip your finger in the water and dampen the top and bottom corners. Fold the bottom corner up to the middle and tightly pack the filling.

Start to roll up to the top. Seal the corner with a little more water. Place the roll seam side down on the prepared baking sheet.

Repeat until you have finished all of the egg rolls. Spray the tops of all the egg rolls. Bake for 6 minutes, flip over, and bake for another 6 minutes until the rolls are  crispy and golden brown.

Yes the Badgers lost by one point, but I took Syracuse in my bracket so I’m not too angry.

Happy NCAA Watching :)

Meatless Monday: Buffalo Tofu Sticks

Buffalo wing, buffalo chicken salad, buffalo shrimp, buffalo sauce is good on so many things. I have wanted to try tofu and what is better than throwing some buffalo sauce on it? This is a play on buffalo wings and has a bleu cheese dip to go with it.

Buffalo Tofu with Bleu Cheese Sauce

(Revised from The Bored Vegetarian)

Ingredients:

  • 1 container extra firm tofu
  • 1 cup hot sauce
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • non stick cooking spray
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup bleu cheese
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Method:

Cut the block of tofu into about 1 inch rectangular pieces. Place on a few paper towel sheets and cover with more paper towels. Place something heavy on top for about 20 minutes to drain the tofu.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with a cooling rack.

Prepare three bowls: first one with 1/2 cup flour; second one with hot sauce; and the third one with 1 cup flour, breadcrumbs, salt and paprika. Take each piece of tofu and coat it in flour, then hot sauce, and then the breadcrumbs. Repeat with the hot sauce and breadcrumbs a second time. Set aside and continue with remaining tofu.

Place the breaded piece of tofu on the rack. Spray all the piece with non-stick cooking spray. Bake the tofu sticks for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.

In a small bowl, mix together the yogurt and bleu cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Happy Snacking!
