Tailgating is a huge part of my life, and I am always trying to come up with new ways to serve classic flavors. This is a great substitute for wings, with all the flavor and less mess to eat!


Celery Salad:

Buffalo Chicken Dumplings:


  1. For the celery salad: Combine the vinegar, sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Toss in the celery and carrots. Season with freshly ground black pepper and let marinate while you prep the dumplings.
  2. For the Buffalo chicken dumplings: Combine the chicken, carrots, celery, scallions and Buffalo sauce in a medium bowl and season with salt and pepper. Fill a dumpling wrapper with 1 teaspoon of the filling. Use a finger to wet the edges of the wrapper with water and crimp together to form the familiar dumpling shape. Repeat with the remaining ingredients and dumpling wrappers.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat with 1/4 cup oil.
  4. Place the flat sides of the dumplings down and fry until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons water and cover to steam. Cook until the chicken is cooked through, 7 to 10 minutes.
  5. Serve the dumplings with sides of Buffalo sauce, ranch and blue cheese dressings and the marinated celery salad.
