Buffalo Chicken Poppers with Avocado Bleu Cheese Dip
I love you Terrie Ginn for sharing this recipe from www.iowagirleats.com, and the pic of the cut crescent rolls, ya that's iowa girls pic, fyi. Im not a pic snatcher! Usually, ok just this once. The other crappy pic is all mine.
These little poppers are ridiculous good! The dip is perfect for it! I made these for our very non-traditional Easter dinner. I keep hoping to have an excuse to make these again! and again, and again.....
Buffalo Chicken Poppers with Avocado Bleu Cheese Dip:
Makes 16 poppers
4oz cream cheese, softened (can use regular, whipped, 1/3 less fat, etc.)
3 teaspoons ranch dip mix, divided
1 large chicken breast, cut into small pieces
3-4 Tablespoons buffalo wing sauce
1, 8-count tube reduced fat crescent rolls
Avocado Bleu Cheese Dip:
1/3 cup bleu cheese dressing
Preheat oven according to crescent roll package directions. Mix together cream cheese and 2 teaspoons ranch dip mix in a small bowl. Season chicken with remaining teaspoon ranch dip mix, and cook in a non-stick sprayed skillet. Toss with buffalo wing sauce, and set aside to cool.
Lay crescent rolls out flat, and cut each triangle in half with a pizza cutter. Gently flatten each triangle, and place 1 teaspoon cream cheese mix in the center. Top with a spoonful of chicken. Bring all three sides of the crescent roll triangle to the top, then pinch all three seams to seal. Place on a baking sheet, and bake according to crescent roll package directions.
While the poppers are baking, mash avocado until smooth. Stir in bleu cheese dressing, and serve with poppers.
