This particular recipe was inspired by my buffalo chicken dip and chicken and broccoli puffs. I love both recipes and use them all the time at parties and family gatherings. So I thought, why not combine the two recipes together and this is what we got. I love using the crescent rolls. They come out perfect all the time and you don’t have to worry about making them from scratch. Then you add the chicken buffalo filling and once baked it’s like a surprising kind of taste but so good and satisfying.

If you host parties and like trying new ways to serve your guests, this is a great idea. You can prepare the chicken mixture a day in advance if you are having a large gathering and want to get some of your prep work out of the way. Just keep the mixture closed and refrigerated until you are ready to use it. These are also great when you have a lazy evening and don’t feel like cooking up a storm. Just serve with a side salad and you’re good.

Notes:

*Any shredded cheese will work; Mozzarella, Four cheese or Mexican cheese (or even a combination of both).

**You can use your favorite hot sauce. Sriracha, Tabasco sauce or Red Hot sauce may be used.

On a side note. Our kids have less than two weeks of school. Ha? Where has the time gone? I am not sure which I am more excited about, the not having to get up at 6:30 or having them home with me all day. Yahoo. Do you have anything special planned this summer as a family? Or with the kiddos? I think the first thing we are looking forward to doing is taking the kids to Amish country. We have never been there and it’s only an hour from us. There is a really neat farm where they’d love to go to and going to really enjoy Amish home-style cooking and cute little shops. Love to hear what you guys are looking to go in the summer.
