Buffalo Chicken Mozzarella Sticks

These tangy nuggets of deliciousness are what happens when you combine 2 iconic appetizers.



  • 8 chicken cutlets
  • 8 oz mozzarella cheese
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 cans Pillsbury Crescent Dough
  • ½ cup Buffalo sauce
  • Ranch or blue cheese dressing for serving
  • Oil for frying

Let's get Cooking...

  1. Preheat a pot of oil for frying to 350ºF.
  2. Place chicken cutlet between two pieces of plastic wrap and, using a mallet or heavy-bottom saucepan, pound until about ⅛-inch thick; repeat with remaining chicken. Slice chicken cutlets into 3 ½ x 3-inch pieces and set aside.
  3. To make mozzarella sticks, slice mozzarella in ½ x 2 ½-inch pieces and chill in freezer until firm but not frozen. Wrap with chicken. Season sticks with garlic powder and Italian seasoning. Heat a non-stick skillet on medium-high heat and pan fry chicken until seared on all sides.
  4. Unroll Pillsbury Crescent Dough and separate triangles. Wrap each chicken mozzarella stick with 1 dough triangle. Working in batches, fry for 5–7 minutes until golden and cooked through.
  5. Immediately toss in Buffalo sauce and serve hot with ranch or blue cheese dressing.
