Crab rangoons are one of the best deep-fried inventions ever created. But, if you are looking for a more diet-friendly way to enjoy them, or you don’t have a deep fryer available, don’t worry: A baked version of this treat can be equally yummy!
This recipe for Baked Buffalo chicken rangoons from Savvy Saving Couple is a great way to satisfy your rangoon cravings without all that extra oil and mess. It’s also perfect for those who don’t love seafood.
That’s because, instead of using crab meat, which can be expensive and hard to find, this recipe calls for shredded cooked chicken. So you can use a store-bought rotisserie chicken to save yourself time and hassle. You also need cream cheese, blue cheese dressing and Frank’s Red Hot or Tabasco to add some heat.
These cute little appetizers, once assembled, are cooked in the oven. Serve with dipping sauces like buffalo sauce, sweet and sour sauce, or ranch dressing. Buffalo chicken rangoons are great for serving at parties, and they can also be easily reheated if you have leftovers.
