Step 1: Ingredients
1 lb Ground chicken breast
2Cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1-1 1/2 Cups of Chicken wing hot sauce of any kind
1 1/2 Cups White flour
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp of Spices to kick up heat if needed. (chipotle, cayenne, ancho chili power, paprika, smoked paprika)
Step 2: Prepare Chicken Meat
Step 3: Cook the buffalo chicken filling
Add 4 TB butter
1 cup of hot sauce
1/2 tsp salt
Put water in the pan to fill to about an inch below the level of the ground chicken (see picture)
Cook on medium high heat. Stir frequently to keep the chicken in small pieces.
Let it simmer until most of the water has gone.
Take 2 TB of cornstarch and dissolve in a small amount of water. Stir this into the chicken mixture to thicken up the remaining fluid. You should end up with nearly a sloppy Joe consistently (see picture)
Step 4: Make the dough
4 TB softened butter
1 1/2 cups of flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 Cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4- 1/2 tsp of whatever hot spices you desire. We used chipotle, cayenne and smoked paprika.
Mix these ingredients together until the butter is broken up into fine pieces. It should be dry and not sticky at this point. (see picture)
While the mixer is running slowly add 1/2 Cup of hot sauce until the dough forms a ball. (see Picture)
Step 5: Roll out the dough
Compress between two pieces of parchment paper*.
Roll dough to around 1/8 inch thick.
I prefer rolling things out on parchment as opposed to wax paper. It seems more study.
Step 6: Layer on the fillings
Spread the ground chicken mixture evenly over the entire surface of the dough.
Then sprinkle blue cheese evenly.
*if the paper is too sticky on the dough, put it in the refrigerator to harden up a bit.
Step 7: Roll and slice
Chill until it can be cut without squashing the slices...about an hour.
Slice about 1/2- 3/4 inches thick and place on a parchment paper lined cooking tray.
Step 8: Final toppings
Place in the oven at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or when ever the dough browns and the moisture has finished bubbling in the filling.
