We've already discussed my love for all things buffalo, but I haven't mentioned my love for Pinterest. I have tons and tons of recipes pinned to try, some simple, some super complex, but all delicious. The highly addicting Pinterest is what first turned me on to these buffalo egg rolls (Can You Stay For Dinner's Buffalo Chicken Rolls) which are pretty dag-gone good. According to the recipe these should be baked (not fried). Because I have only deep fried anything once (and it was a complete disaster) and because I really try not eat fried things excessively, I also baked them. Here's the caveat, they were good baked, but they'd be phenomenal fried. So, if you have the time, skill, and inclination, give them a try that way too. By the way, when you're looking for egg roll wrappers, they are generally in the produce section near the refrigerated salad dressings.
Start by mixing the cooked and shredded chicken together with buffalo sauce (you can make your own by combining 1/2 Cup Red Hot Sauce with 2 Tbl melted butter and a dash of Worcestershire sauce).
Next, top the egg roll wrappers with a bit of dry coleslaw mix, 2 tablespoons of the chicken mixtures, and 1 tablespoon of crumbled blue cheese. Then fold the egg roll wrapper like an envelope. Moisten the top corner edges and fold over.
Place the completed rolls onto a greased rack on top of a baking sheet.
Bake them at 400 for 15-20 minutes.
