Mini Buffalo Chicken Egg Rolls – No Wings Were Harmed in the Making of This Snack
These mini buffalo chicken egg rolls remind me of the time I ordered something called “boneless Buffalo wings,” many years ago. Like all Western New Yorkers, I have a deep affection for this messy, but delicious snack, and so I was very excited about being able to enjoy some without having to deal with the wing bones.
As I waited for my order, I felt sorry for whichever prep cook had been given the tedious task of de-boning them. However, my sympathy was unwarranted, since what they were calling “boneless buffalo wings” were nothing more than strips of fried chicken breast, coated in the same sauce. While happy for the prep cook, I was disappointed they weren’t wings.
So, it’s a little bit ironic that all these years later, I’m now using chicken breast to create a Buffalo wing alternative, but at least I’m not trying to trick anybody. That aside, these really do have a very similar flavor profile, and I should probably be more concerned with the people who are going to be upset I’m calling these egg rolls.
What’s not going to upset anybody is just how great a party snack these really do make, and not just because they’re delicious. Even sober people make a mess eating actual buffalo chicken wings, but that’s not going to be an issue here, thanks to their very user-friendly design. So, if you’re planning a party soon, I really do hope you give these a try. Enjoy!

I almost never order a nut-crusted entrée in a restaurant, since they usually use a sugary glaze to hold them on, and/or feature a too sweet nut, like pecan, or macadamia. That’s not an issue here; since we’re going with buttery, subtly bitter walnuts, held on with a very savory […]

Of course this Fisherman’s Stew takes more than five minutes to make, and I’m actually referring to the approximate cooking time once the seafood hits the pan, but as they say, it’s only false advertising if someone else does it. Besides, one taste and I’m sure you’ll forgive any temporal […]
It sounds odd to say that a recipe’s biggest problem is that it looks too good, but that’s sort of the case with this pear clafoutis. Through no fault of its own, this crust-less, custard fruit tart looks a lot sweeter, and richer than it actually is. So, please be […]
I don’t think there’s actually a difference between a liquid salad, and a cold vegetable soup, but if there is, I’d like this Bloody Mary Burrata recipe to be considered the former. Especially since I already posted a gazpacho this summer. But regardless of what you call this strange hybrid, […]
While our homemade butcher’s nuggets won’t feature the same diversity of meat parts as the butcher shop, at least they won’t feature the same diversity of meat parts.

The Philly Cheesesteak is a simple sandwich to make, as long as you’re making them in a restaurant. To make a proper one, you need a professional meat slicer, and a very hot flattop grill, which aren’t things most people have at home. That’s why I loved this baked slider […]
