Our house was filled with rowdy, die-hard New York Jets fans yesterday, eagerly anticipating the big Jets vs. Chargers game. This game was serious business and deserved some classic comfort food.  I wanted to make something fan friendly and delicious and what could be better than hot and spicy buffalo chicken?  I made a few tarts along with some homemade guacamole and chips, which seemed to satisfy the big game appetites.  The buffalo chicken was a real crowd pleaser--I'm sure it didn't hurt that the Jets continued their winning streak!

This tart is easy to make and works beautifully as an appetizer or for dinner with a salad. If you like your food really hot, add more hot sauce.

Hot and Spicy Buffalo Chicken Tart
1 box Pepperidge Farms Puff Pastry
1 rotisserie chicken, white meat

3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons Frank's hot sauce
4 oz. soft cream cheese

4 oz. blue cheese 
salt, to season

preheat oven to 400 degrees

Roll the puff pastry on a floured board to fit a 9 inch tart pan.  Place into tart pan and prick lightly with a fork.  Bake for 6-7 minutes until slightly puffed.  

Shred white meat from the rotisserie chicken and add to a large bowl.  In a small saucepan melt butter and add hot sauce, toss with chicken to coat thoroughly. Add the cream cheese and salt, mix well. Top tart with chicken mixture and crumble blue cheese on top.  Bake for 3-4 minutes until heated through and put under broiler for one minute until cheese is melted.
