Buffalo chicken pinwheels

By: Drizzle
Servings: 16
Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 16 minutes
Total: 31 minutes
2SP blue, green & purple, 2PP


  • 1 package pillsbury reduced fat crescent rolls
  • 1/4 cup light cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup light shredded cheese, such as WW brand or similar, I use a 3 cheese blend
  • 1 Tbsp light ranch dressing
  • 2 Tbsp franks hot sauce
  • 4 oz about 1 cup shredded cooked chicken


  • In a bowl mix your softened cream cheese, shredded cheese, ranch and hot sauce.
  • Open your dough and lay out into 2 pieces (4 crescent rolls each) pinch together any open seams.
  • Divide your cheese mixture in two and spread onto your dough.
  • Sprinkle your grated chicken on top (I like to cook my chicken breast in the crock pot, little broth on high about 4 hours and it shreds nicely, I do a batch up each week to keep in the fridge for meals and such)
  • Carefully roll up each piece and seal any open seams, Place in freezer for about 10 minutes, this will help firm them up.
  • Preheat oven to 350F and spray a large cookie sheet.
  • Using a serrated knife carefully cut each roll into 8 pieces, I usually cut of the small ends and then make my 8 cuts.
  • Place on cookie sheet and bake in oven for approx 16 minutes, checking they don't burn, you want them a nice golden brown, check around them that the dough has cooked through.
  • Makes 16 pinwheels at 2 SP each on all 3 MyWW programs

  1. 5 stars
    Made these last night for two hungry boys and myself and we LOVED them! The only thing I did differently was mixing the chicken in with the cream cheese mixture. Quick, easy, and delicious. My fiance said, “This needs to go in our regular rotation!”

  2. My family loved these! I will be making them again. I put them out with a pile of celery and more dressing for dunking.
