Buffalo Chicken Roll Ups

Before my GBS I loved buffalo wings. There is a restaurant where I live in Long Beach Island called the Chicken or the Egg and their speciality item is chicken wings, battered and fried with a choice of 16 sauces. I loved going there, but now I cannot even stomach one bite! So I thought about it, if you take away the frying, oil and butter, whats left over really isn't that bad, chicken, blue cheese and hot sauce really. So this was the inspiration for my buffalo chicken roll ups

  • 1 lb thin sliced boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • 4oz package blue cheese crumbles (room temp)

  • 1 tablespoon FF cream cheese (room temp)

  • 1/4 cup of chopped fresh baby spinach

  • salt

  • pepper

  • paprika

  • garlic powder

  • hot wing sauce

  • toothpicks

Preheat oven to 350. Lay out all the chicken breasts on a foil covered baking sheet. Sprinkle salt, pepper, paprika and garlic powder on the chicken. In a bowl mix together blue cheese, cream cheese and chopped spinach. Spoon about 2 tablespoons onto each chicken breast on the side that you sprinkled the spices on, and roll up. Stick in a few tooth picks in to hold it together. Pour hot sauce onto each roll up and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink. My husband and I loved these!
