They would also make a great appetizer to chow down on while you cheer on your favorite team. Or if you’re a Husker fan, to drown your sorrows over. Let’s not talk about it.

We start out with thawed puff pastry to achieve an incredibly light and flaky pocket. It’s cut into the desired size, rolled out a bit and then filled with buffalo chicken, sharp cheddar and bleu cheese. Then crimp the edges closed and brush with an egg wash for an amazing golden finish. Bake them for 20 minutes and you have buffalo chicken perfection.

These are so much tastier than the store-bought versions and you know every ingredient going into them. Try these Buffalo Chicken Pockets then let your imagination run wild with all the filling possibilities.
