How to Make Puff Pasty Buffalo Chicken Salad Bites

These chicken salad puffs are super easy to make. Start with thawing the puff pastry. While the pastry is thawing, make the chicken salad. Combine chopped chicken, wing sauce, celery, mayonnaise, ranch dressing, Worcestershire sauce, and cheddar cheese. Cut each piece of puff pastry into 9 squares. Top each square with the chicken salad on the diagonal and bring the edges together. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake.

  • I used rotisserie chicken for the cooked chicken.
  • I use Frank’s Hot Sauce and Franks’s Wings Sauce. You can use any brand you prefer.
  • Here is the recipe for our Copycat Outback Ranch Dressing: https://www.plainchicken.com/copycat-outback-ranch-dressing/
  • I don’t like ranch dressing. What can I use instead? You can substitute bleu cheese dressing or plain mayonnaise.
  • To keep the edges together during cooking :
    • Don’t overfill the puff pastry
    • Wet the edges of the puff pastry with water to help seal the pastry together
    • Can use toothpicks to help keep the edges together
    • If the puff pastry does open up during cooking, don’t panic. As soon as you take them out of the oven, gently press the edges together and they will stay together just fine after cooling. I had to do that with some of the puffs in this batch.
  • Are these puffs spicy? We didn’t think these puffs were super spicy. Make sure to adjust the hot sauce up or down to your personal preference.
  • Can Buffalo Chicken Pastry Puffs be made in advance? Yes! You can assemble the pastry puff ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to bake.
  • Can Buffalo Chicken Pastry Puffs be frozen? Yes! You can assemble the pastry puff ahead of time and freeze them unbaked for later. To bake after freezing, simply add a few minutes to the cooking time below.
