Prep Time: 15 minutesCook Time: 13 minutesDough Resting: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 28 minutesServings: 20 BitesCalories: 70kcal


  • 1 cup finely diced cooked chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce (Frank’s brand is what I used)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons rapid-rise dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 cup warm milk ( I used 2%)
  • 2 1/2 cups of flour


  1. To make the buffalo chicken mixture, in a small bowl, combine the chicken, blue cheese, cheddar cheese, melted butter, and hot sauce; set aside.
  2. In a 1 cup measuring cup, heat the milk and then add the 2 tablespoons brown sugar; stir into warm milk until dissolved; place in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook.
  3. Add 2 1/2 cups flour and yeast to the stand mixer and mix on low speed until a soft dough forms, adding up to 1/2 cup additional flour, a little at a time, if necessary.
  4. Allow the dough to knead in the stand mixer for 5-7 minutes. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead a few times to form a smooth ball.
  5. Place dough into a clean bowl that’s been lightly oiled.
  6. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a draft-free place at warm room temperature until doubled and bubbles appear on the surface, about 2 hours.
  7. Preheat oven to 400°F with a rack in the middle of the oven. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  8. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and cut into 4 equal pieces. Lightly dust your hands with flour, then gently roll and stretch 1 piece of dough to form a 12-inch-long rope.
  9. Flatten the dough and arrange it so a long side is nearest you, then roll out to a roughly 12- by 4-inch rectangle with a lightly floured rolling pin. Gently press one-fourth of the buffalo chicken mixture into the lower third of the rectangle, leaving a 1/2-inch border along the bottom edge.
  10. Stretch the bottom edge of the dough up over the filling and press tightly to seal, then roll up as tightly as possible to form a rope.
  11. Cut rope into 12 pieces and transfer to a sheet pan. Make 3 more ropes with remaining dough, fill, and cut into pieces, transferring to sheet pans.
  12. Let rest at room temperature, uncovered, for 30 minutes (dough will rise slightly).
  13. Bake buffalo chicken bites in the preheated oven for 5-7 minutes or until the tops are lightly browned.
  14. Remove from oven (some cheese may have melted out.) and brush tops with melted butter before serving (optional).
