How to Make Buffalo Chicken Ring
- Preheat oven to 375°. Line a baking sheet with a layer of parchment paper.
- With an electric mixer, mix cream cheese, ranch dressing and hot sauce in a large bowl.
- Fold the shredded chicken into the cream cheese mixture.
- Separate both cans of crescent dough into 16 triangles. Place a 5-inch ramekin in the center of the prepared baking sheet. Place the triangles of crescent dough in a ring around the ramekin. The short ends of the dough should be touching the ramekin, slightly overlapping. Pointy ends should face outward. Dough will look like a sun shape.
- Spoon chicken mixture over the short ends of the triangle closest to the ramekin. Sprinkle the blue cheese on top. Remove the ramekin. Fold the pointed end of the triangles up and over the filling. Tuck the tip underneath the bottom layer of dough. The dough will not completely cover the filling. Repeat with the remaining triangles. There will be gaps where you can still see the chicken mixture.
- Bake for approximately 20 minutes, until the dough is golden brown. Remove to a cooling rack and allow to cool for about 15 minutes.
- Slice and serve with more hot sauce, blue cheese or ranch dressing, carrots and celery.
