Buffalo Chicken Poppers

Kim Biegacki


If you love buffalo chicken dip that is so addicting you will love these baked poppers. My husband Anthony adores "buffalo" flavored meals. When we are out for lunch one of his most requested sammies is a Buffalo chicken sandwich, so this is a great alternative. Smaller bites of a great combination of flavors with less guilt too. I was surprised to see the celery in this but it works as there is a crunch on the inside with a crisp baked outside of the popper. A great appetizer for "Game Day" or any party.

This is another recipe from Ninja Cooking System cookbook w/a few changes of my own.

How to Make Buffalo Chicken Poppers


  1. Finely chop your chicken and celery. Next season up your chicken with some beau monde, salt and pepper to taste. Mix together the chicken, celery, cheeses or sour ceam and Frank's hot sauce.
  2. Separate the crescent rolls into the 8 triangles and cut in half. Or use seamless dough and cut into 16 triangles, whichever works easier. Press down gently on each triangle to flatten out. Place about 1 1/2 tbsp of the mixture in the center. Pull up one corner at a time to the center to close up the popper.
  3. Place the uncooked popper down into the Ninja cooker or use your oven. Set Ninja to 375 degrees for about 15 minutes. Cover and cook until poppers are a golden brown. For me, it was about 7 to 8 minutes on each side. Watch and turn according to your oven's cooking temp.
  4. Remove from the Ninja or stove and set on a plate. Have your sliced veggies and dip ready to go.
  5. Plate up your poppers, veggies and favorite dips and they are ready to serve.
