Buffalo Chicken Pinwheels

"These appetizers can be prepared up to 24 hours ahead of time, then cover and refrigerate. Before serving, place the appetizers in a shallow pan and cover with foil. Heat at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes. I love this appetizer from Pillsbury."

  1. totally great and something different. Made about a month ago at a party I had--YUM
  2. I made these for 5 twelve year old boys for a sleepover and they loved them. I melted 2 tbsp of butter and 2 tbsp of cream cheese with the red pepper sauce to tone down the heat a little for the boys. Even my two year old loved them. I assembled them a couple hours before I cooked them and kept them in the fridge which made slicing them much easier.
  3. I was wanting to make a appetizer that wasn't the same old thing. Well, THIS WAS IT !!! this was new and different from the standards. Everyone gobbled them up and wanted the recipe!!! They were gone in a flash, so can't tell you how they would have been left over and reheated- LOL
  4. Quick and easy appy - nice combo of flavors! Simple directions and ingredients! Great for a game day! Another one I will repeat for get togethers! Thanks for posting,Lainey!! **Made for Bevy Tag 2008**
  5. Very good appetizer. Made for our Christmas Eve appetizer dinner. Next time I will roll the dough flat and thinner, and add extra chicken. Will probably also find a way to spice them up, we like extra hot buffalo chicken! Thanks for the recipe
