Wingless Buffalo Chicken Rolls with Blue Cheese Dip

Buffalo Chicken Rolls

1 pkg (1 1/3lb) ground chicken breast

6 scallions, thinly sliced, then chopped

1 garlic clove, finely chopped

3-4 T. hot sauce

Salt and fresh ground black pepper

6 sheets frozen phyllo dough, defrosted

4 T. unsalted butter, melted


Dipping Sauce

1 C. crumbled blue cheese

1 1/2 C. sour cream


Preheat oven to 400. In a bowl, combine ground chicken, scallions, garlic, and hot sauce and season with salt and pepper. Transfer the mixture to a sealable plastic bag. To turn the sealable plastic bag into a homemade pastry bag, trim 1 1/2 inches off one of the bottom corners of the plastic bag. Push the chicken mixture to the cut corner without pushing it through the hole. Reserve while you prepare the phyllo. Arrange 1 sheet of phyllo dough with the long side closest to you on your kitchen counter, brush liberally from edge to edge with melted butter, and season with salt and pepper. Place another sheet of phyllo on top, again brush liberally with butter, and season with salt and pepper. Repeat with the third layer of phyllo. Place the trimmed end of the pastry bag 1/2 inch in from the left side and 1/2 inch up from the bottom of the phyllo sheet. Squeeze half of the chicken mixture from the bag while moving along in a straight line from left to right. Roll the front edge of the phyllo sheet away from you, encasing the chicken mixture. Continue until you have completed a long roll. Tuck the ends in and then brush the entire outside of the phyllo log with more melted butter. Transfer the first log to a rimmed cookie sheet, putting the seam side down. Repeat this process to make a second log with the remaining chicken mixture. Bake 15 minutes or until the log feels firm to the touch. While the phyllo-wrapped chicken is in the oven, in a bowl, combine the blue cheese and sour cream. Smash the blue cheese with a fork to break it up, then stir to thoroughly combine with sour cream. When rolls are cooked, remove from oven and let them cool just enough to handle. Cut each roll in half, then cut each half in 3 equal pieces. Serve 3 chicken rolls per person celery sticks and a dish of dipping sauce.
