How to make a Buffalo Chicken Ring

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Combine cooked, shredded chicken and buffalo sauce together in a large bowl.
    • Quick Tip! The chicken can be pressure cooked & shredded ahead of time, purchased at the store already cooked & shredded, or pulled off a store-bought rotisserie chicken.
  • Add shredded carrots and diced green onions to the chicken mixture with shredded pepper jack cheese.
    • Quick Tip! You can mix up the shredded cheese if you’d like and use cheddar or mozzarella instead.
  • Mix everything in the bowl together.
  • Form a ring with the crescent rolls by placing a small glass on the center of a baking stone then staggering the crescent roll dough, in rectangle form, around the glass.
  • Add the buffalo chicken mixture to the middle of the crescent roll ring around the glass.
  • Carefully remove the glass from the middle and roll the dough up and over the buffalo chicken filling.
  • Place the roll in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and serve with ranch or blue cheese dressing or additional buffalo sauce for dipping.

What kind of buffalo sauce do you use for the buffalo chicken ring?

I like to use Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Sauce, but feel free to use your favorite brand of buffalo sauce.

If you don’t like buffalo sauce, you can also mix things up and use your favorite hot sauce. Or for something not so spicy, you could use BBQ sauce.

How do you reheat a buffalo chicken crescent ring?

I recommend reheating the buffalo chicken ring in the oven, if possible, to keep the crescent rolls from getting soggy. To reheat, place slices of the chicken ring on a baking sheet and into a 350°F oven for 10 minutes.

The buffalo chicken ring will stay good in the refrigerator for up to 5 days and makes delicious leftovers for dinner the next night!
