This is the first real update on my Mini Personal Pinterest Challenge from this past weekend.  I'm going to cover the item one on my challenge list, the Buffalo Chicken Cups from Doughmesstic.  I've only had these on pinned to my Nom Nom Nom board on Pinterest for 12 days.  Here we go...
O. M. G.  DELICIOUS!  How is that for an review?  Seriously, folks, if you like buffalo type dishes, you must try this one.  I'm kind of weird in that I don't like actual buffalo wings, but I do like buffalo sauce flavored dishes like the Buffalo Blasts at Cheesecake Factory.  I guess that's up there with not liking tomatoes but liking ketchup and salsa, right?

Because I like to go the easy route, I used a rotisserie chicken and a tube of prepared pizza dough.
It was much easier, and faster, to use the rotisserie chicken.  In fact, I think I'll do it more often when a recipe calls for chicken.  
Since I had the prepared chicken, the recipe went really quickly.  Here's a close-up of the finished mix.  It smelled so good!
I have learned, I am NOT a pretty cook.  I mean, I AM pretty, but pretty food is not something I'm good at and frankly, who cares as long as it tastes great?  Case in point, getting the pizza dough in the muffin cups was not smooth.
My go to kitchen gadget is always my mini scooper.  I use it for so many different things, like scooping cookie dough, making cake balls, and now scooping chicken into cups.  It worked like a champ!
Then it was time for the cheese.  I added some leftover blue cheese crumbles from the Blue Cheese Bacon Dip from my last post.  Next time I'm going to use more crumbles and actually put them in the mix before filling the cups.  It was a nice touch.  
Is your mouth watering yet?  Because mine was!  The house smelled so good.  Again, do not judge my sloppy dough mess in the pictures.  
Before I served them up with a side of blue cheese dressing for dipping, I asked Sis and Chris to be totally honest about what they thought of this recipe since I was going to be reviewing it on my blog.  Both said they were yummy and would have it again.  I couldn't agree more.  It will definitely make a repeat performance.  Another success!  
If you read my blog, you know I am kind of addicted to cup recipes.  Or, as my friend Bill said when I told him I was making the Buffalo Cups, "You're hooked on those cups, aren't you?"  So far I've tried Plain Chicken's recipes for Taco Cups and Lasagna Cups.  (She's also got a ton of other great recipes.)  The taco cups were a hit when I made them in mini cups for a party.  Now, after making Doughmesstic's Buffalo Chicken Cups, I'm wondering what other recipes I can convert into "cups."  Look forward to that adventure in the coming months.
