I bought legit winter boots approximately five hours after a serious snowstorm.
They arrived today…when 60 degrees is in the forecast. ( I’m alright with them living in the closet…because it’s never getting colder than 60 anymore.)(Shut your face. I’m right on this one.)
It’s possible that I’m not always prepared on time.
But this time, I have things under control in advance. This buffalo chicken monkey bread should probably be the appetizer you build a Super Bowl party around. There’s time for thinking about this sort of thing…and football shaped paper plates at Target. I really don’t know what other sort of inspiration you need.
In other news…there’s new furniture in my living room! I can’t even begin to tell you how stressful buying a couch is. But when it’s over, and your checking account is empty, and you’re sitting on something cushy and new, things are good.
And! I discovered this website at work today. It gives away books! Please tell me there’s a part of you that has always wanted to give twenty books away to friends…or strangers. (I’m picking Farenheit 451.)
Maybe…can we read books instead of watching the Super Bowl? Or is that just unAmerican? Buffalo chicken bread can still be involved. (Obviously.)
Each biscuit is cut into six pieces, and set into one giant pile. Chicken is cooked and shredded. Ranch and buffalo wing sauce are mixed together. I can do this sort of thing with my eyes closed…but then the dog would be licking buffalo sauce off the floor, and I’d probably be paying for it later.
Once you’ve prepped, all that remains is the layering. Biscuit pieces, sauce, chicken, cheese. Repeat. And, repeat again. Finishing with the cheese is important…melted cheese atop anything is the only way to go.
This bread is thick, and takes some time to bake. It’s best to plan early…you’ll need a solid hour and then a little of time in the oven. (It’s worth it.)
I like letting this bread sit a little and then slicing it with a serrated knife. It sort of feels like slicing a cake in my crazy brain…because that’s what usually happens with bundt pans.
The slices can still be torn apart with your fingers…but they keep people’s hands out of everyone else’s piece when you’re in party mode. This is important.
So are books and party excuses. (Get planning, friends!)
Buffalo Chicken Monkey Bread
1 cup Frank’s Buffalo Wing Sauce
2/3 cup ranch dressing
2 cans Grands biscuits
3 cups cooked chicken, shredded
3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
To prep, combine wing sauce and dressing in a small bowl; set aside. Cut each biscuit (there should be eight in each container) into six pieces; set aside. Cook and shred chicken; set aside as well. Spray a bundt pan with cooking spray and begin layering. First biscuits, then sauce, chicken and cheese. Repeat twice (to make three layers). Bake in a preheated 375° oven for one hour (to one hour, 15 minutes). Let cool slightly before inverting pan on a dinner plate. Serve warm, with additional ranch or wing sauce for dipping.
