Buffalo Chicken Pinwheels are a fun, delicious snack or appetizer! Ground chicken is sautéd with your favorite buffalo sauce, spread across pizza dough with cheese, rolled up and cut into the perfect pinwheels. Bake until they are golden brown and delicious and serve these Buffalo Chicken Pinwheels with bleu cheese dressing for dunking!
What are Buffalo Chicken Pinwheels?
These pinwheels actually came to be out of a recipe fail of mine. Originally, they were supposed to be buffalo chicken calzones, but they just weren’t coming together. So, the pinwheel was born!
Essentially, a buffalo chicken pinwheel is like a savory cinnamon roll. You make them the same exact way! Buffalo chicken and shredded cheese are spread across a rectangle of pizza dough, rolled up into a log and cut into individual pinwheels.
Not only are these fun to eat, but they only require a few simple ingredients! Here’s what you’ll need:
How to Serve these Pinwheels
Serving these pinwheels comes with endless possibilities. From a simple dinner option, to a scrumptious appetizer, here are some ideas on how to serve this recipe:
- Appetizer: game days, holidays, or parties
- Lunch: add in some celery and carrots for a perfect buffalo chicken lunch!
- Dinner: cut the pinwheels a little thicker to have them for a dinner option. Serve on top of a salad with bleu cheese dressing for a buffalo chicken salad!
No matter which way you serve them, you gotta have some bleu cheese dressing to go along with them! Perfect for dunking. I jazz my bleu cheese dressing up a bit by sprinkling in some crumbled bleu cheese.
Whether you’re serving this fun recipe as an appetizer or snack, they will surely disappear quickly! Better snag a couple while you can.
