Buffalo Chicken Salad Pastry Puffs - Great recipe for a quick lunch, dinner or party. Chicken salad tossed with wing sauce, ranch dressing, and cheese then baked in puff pastry. SO good! Can make ahead and freeze for later. We love to serve these with some coleslaw and extra ranch or bleu cheese dressing for dipping.

1(17.3-oz)package puff pastry, defrosted
1½cupscooked chopped chicken
3Tbspbuffalo wing sauce
¼cupbottled ranch dressing
¾cupshredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
Unfold pastry sheets. Cut each sheet into 9 squares for a total of 18 squares.
Combine chicken, celery, wing sauce, ranch, mayonnaise, and cheese. Arrange chicken salad diagonally down the center of the pastry squares.
Fold two opposite corners of each square over the filling and press edges to seal. Place on baking sheet.
Bake 15-18 minutes, until golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature.
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.
You can substitute bleu cheese dressing or plain mayonnaise for the ranch dressing.
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.
We didn't think these puffs were super spicy. Make sure to adjust the hot sauce up or down to your personal preference.
ou can assemble the pastry puff ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to bake.
