buffalo chicken and blue cheese sauce

Last night we had snack food for dinner. I didn't feel like doing any serious cooking, but I did want to use up some of the cottage cheese I bought to make GF crescent rolls. So I got some little cocktail hotdogs and made pigs in blankets, and I had some chicken, so I made buffalo chicken nuggets with blue cheese sauce.
Buffalo chicken nuggets
about a pound of chicken thighs, cut into bite-size pieces
about 1 c of rice flour
salt and pepper
oil for frying
3 T butter
4 T chili-garlic sauce, or your favorite hot sauce
Heat the oil to fry the chicken in. Salt and pepper the flour, then dredge each chicken piece in it, then drop carefully into hot oil. fry on each side a few minutes, until cooked through (cut one in half to test). Remove to paper towel when done to drain. Melt the butter slowly in a saucepan. Add chili sauce, stir to mix well, then toss chicken.
Blue cheese sauce
1/2 c blue cheese (Rosenborg is gluten-free)
1/3 c sour cream
1 T mayonnaise
a splash of vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced

Mash everything together.


  1. You've been cooking up a storm -- everything looks great!

    I think I'll try and make the buffalo chicken for Superbowl Sunday! Yum.

  2. Thanks! I usually cook this much I just don't normally spend enough time on the computer to update as much as I'd like to.
    Let me know how they turn out if you make the buffalo chix!

  3. I love snack for supper! This looks yummy.

    Thank goodness I was planning on it anyway, with chicken skewers and different dipping sauces; otherwise I would have had to change my plan.

  4. can you post the recipe for the crescent rolls?? cottage cheese as an ingredient sounds so interesting.

  5. I'm going through this blog drooling over recipes (I love to bake) but am surprised by this one. Most blue cheeses aren't gluten-free -- the mold is apparently grown on bread -- but there are one or two that are.

  6. Beth- Yeah, I guess I should have clarified in this post. I buy Rosenborg blue cheese, which is gluten free. I'll clarify in the post! Thanks!

  7. I made these on Superbowl Sunday and they were quite delicious! I'll definitely make them again....!
