? INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the self rising flour and greek yogurt to form a dough. Divide into 8 balls.
  2. In a separate medium bowl, combine the shredded buffalo chicken and cheese. Mix well.
  3. Roll out each dough ball and place a spoonful of the buffalo chicken cheese mixture in the middle. Fold and seal the edges around the filling. Spray the ball with cooking spray and place in the airfryer.
  4. Cook in an airfryer on 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before eating.

? Recipe Tips and Variations

  • Depending on the size of your air fryer, you might need to do 2 batches so the pockets have enough size to cook (the pockets will expand in size as they bake)
  • These are great served with a side of ranch dressing
  • If you don’t have self rising flour on hand, regular flour can be used as a substitute. To use regular flour in this recipe, mix together 2 cups all purpose flour, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp salt.
  • I like to spray each pocket with a little cooking spray but an egg wash can also be used.

? HOW TO STORE LEFTOVERS

Leftovers (if there are any!) should be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

To freeze, allow the cheesy buffalo pockets to fully cool. Tightly wrap in saran wrap and then place into a freezer bag and freeze for up to 5 months. To defrost, place in the refrigerator for 24 hours before serving. Heat 1-2 minutes in the microwave before serving.
