Expert Tips for Unbeatable Buffalo Chicken Bombs

  • Firstly, consider opting for slow-cooker Buffalo chicken to infuse your bombs with a rich, deep flavor. Alternatively, for those in a hurry, using rotisserie chicken offers a quick and still flavorful option.
  • Secondly, it’s crucial to maintain a perfect balance between chicken and cheese. This careful ratio ensures each bite is leak-free and packed with delightful flavors.
  • Lastly, strive for a golden brown finish on your bombs. This not only adds an irresistible crunch but also beautifully complements the soft, cheesy center, making each bite a perfect harmony of textures.

Ahead of Time? No Problem!

Fortunately, preparing these bombs ahead of time is a breeze, seamlessly fitting into your busy schedule. Simply assemble and refrigerate them overnight, then bake when you’re ready to serve. Moreover, should you have leftovers, they store exceptionally well in the fridge for up to three days and reheat in the oven to perfection, retaining their delicious taste and texture.

Serving Ideas to Impress

While these bombs are a standout dish on their own, pairing them with crisp celery and carrot sticks, along with extra blue cheese for dipping, significantly elevates the overall experience. Furthermore, complementing them with sliders, nachos, and a vibrant salad not only rounds out your party spread but also ensures there’s something for everyone to enjoy, making your gathering an unforgettable culinary event.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Freezing Possibility? Absolutely. Bake, cool, then freeze. Reheat in the oven for a quick and delicious treat.
  • Homemade Biscuit Dough? Definitely. If you have a go-to biscuit recipe, it will only enhance the homemade appeal of these bombs.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 cups shredded Buffalo chicken, cooked and flavorful
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese dressing, plus extra for serving
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese, plus extra for garnish
  • 1/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Fontina cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Gouda cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Frank’s RedHot Original Hot Sauce
  • 2 packages refrigerated Pillsbury Grands! Buttermilk Biscuits
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Buffalo Chicken Filling: In a medium saucepan, combine the cream cheese, blue cheese dressing, crumbled blue cheese, Monterey Jack, Fontina, Gouda, and Frank’s RedHot Sauce. Heat over medium, stirring until the cheeses are melted and the mixture is smooth. Stir in the shredded Buffalo chicken. Spread the mixture on a sheet tray and refrigerate to cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees .
  3. In a medium saucepan, place cream cheese, blue cheese dressing, crumbled blue cheese, jack cheese, Fontina cheese, Gouda and Frank’s hot sauce.
  4. Whisk over medium heat to melt everything together.
  5. Remove from heat and stir in the Buffalo Chicken, then spread out on a sheet tray and place in the refrigerator to cool.
  6. After cooling, divide into 16 portions using a rubber spatula to make a 4X4 pattern to make 16 equal portions.
  7. Spray a 13×9-inch casserole dish with non-stick pan spray.
  8. Open the biscuit packages and begin rolling out each biscuit to a five-inch circle. You can do them all at once or one at a time as you fill.
  9. Place one portion of the Buffalo Chicken into the center of the flattened biscuit and pull up the back side to front side and pinch. Then pinch the edges closed so it looks like a pierogi. Finally pull the left and right edges to the center and pinch. (Refer back to photos in post above.)
  10. Turn each one over and place in baking dish, seam side down. Line up six down the center from one end to the other, then finish with five on each side.
  11. Bake for about 30-35 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.
  12. As soon as the pan comes out of the oven, brush on the melted butter and sprinkle on the kosher salt.
  13. Serve immediately with additional blue cheese dressing, crumbled blue cheese and more Franks hot sauce.

Notes

  • For the Buffalo chicken, you can either use leftover rotisserie chicken mixed with hot sauce or make a batch of slow-cooker Buffalo chicken for deeper flavor.
  • Don’t overfill the biscuits to avoid leaks during baking. A good balance of chicken to cheese ratio ensures every bite is perfect.
  • Bake until golden brown for that irresistible crunch outside and tender, cheesy goodness inside.
