I thought I would share my entry that made the top 4 in the Good Morning America Ultimate Game Day Grub Contest. It is my easier to eat, not so messy take on the yummy flavors of a Buffalo chicken wing. Be sure to use a Buffalo wing sauce in the recipe and not straight hot sauce! Enjoy!!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Wow! What a great way to switch up Buffalo wings on game day. These have all the chicken wing flavor without the mess. The crispy egg roll wrapper with the creamy and spicy center is out of this world good. Serve with a side of Blue cheese and Buffalo wing sauce for the perfect party appetizer.
