Peep below to get the full recipe for these spectacular Buffalo Chicken Donuts with Dean’s Ranch Dip.
2 cups finely chopped cooked chicken breast (chopped small enough to fit through piping bag)
1 16.3oz can Flaky Layers Buttermilk Biscuits
2 Tbsp buffalo sauce
4 Tbsp + 4 Tbsp Dean’s Ranch Dip
1 small bunch cilantro, chopped
6-8 cups canola oil
Servings: 8 donuts
Preheat oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit. Chop chicken into finely minced pieces that will be able to pass through the small end of a piping bag. In a small bowl, add chopped chicken, 4 Tbsp Dean’s Ranch Dip, and buffalo sauce. Put mixture into piping bag. Alternatively, you can cut the corner off of a gallon-sized plastic bag. Set aside.
Place oil in pot or deep pan and heat to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit. Open buttermilk biscuits and separate the biscuits. Flatten each slightly so that they measure approximately 4 inches in diameter.
Place biscuits into the hot oil and fry until a light brown color, flipping occasionally for even coloring. Rest biscuits on a sheet pan.
Take a small knife or chopstick and poke a hole into the side of each biscuit. Hollow out a space for the chicken mixture. Place piping bag tip into hole. Evenly and slowly fill the biscuit with the chicken mixture. Place filled donuts on sheet pan.
Place sheet pan into oven for 10 minutes. Allow donuts to cool. Spread remaining Dean’s Ranch Dip onto donut like “icing” and garnish with chopped cilantro.
