I like to get messy with some bar food every once in a while. Buffalo wings are my favorite indulgence. I blame my mother who is a healthy fit woman, but she can throw down a dozen wings like nobody's business (extra crispy please, she always says). I have seen many recipes for home-made buffalo wings, but just can't do it. Do you know how much butter goes into those bad boys? Whoa. So when I saw this baked buffalo chicken roll without butter, I was thrilled. They were crispy, spicy, and gone in 60 seconds.

Buffalo Chicken Rolls
Source: Tracey's Culinary Adventures
3/4 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (about 2 cups) (hello, rotisserie chicken)
1 cup hot sauce (i like Frank's Hot Sauce. Cooks Illustrated ranks it here )
12 egg roll wrappers (you can also make mini's with won ton wrappers)
1 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/2 cup celery, thinly sliced
nonstick cooking spray
blue cheese or ranch dressing, for serving
Preheat oven to 400 F. Set a wire rack inside a rimmed baking sheet and spray the rack with cooking spray.
Stir the chicken and hot sauce together in a medium bowl until moistened - you can use more or less sauce depending on how spicy you want your rolls.
Place one egg roll wrapper on a clean work surface. Add about 1 tablespoon of the celery on the diagonal of the bottom right corner. Top with about 2-3 tablespoons of the chicken, and finally some blue cheese crumbles. Be careful not to overfill the wrappers.
To fold the roll: Bring the bottom right corner up and over the filling to cover it completely and make it snug. Fold each side over to form an envelope, then roll the wrap almost all the way to the top. Wet your finger with water and moisten the top corner, then fold it over the roll, pressing to seal. Place the roll on the prepared rack.

Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.
Spray each roll lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Bake for 15-20 minutes (flipping the rolls halfway through), or until the rolls are golden brown and crisp. Allow to cool for a few minutes, then serve with either blue cheese or ranch dressing.
