Buffalo Chicken Sandwich

Buffalo Chicken Sandwich by EclecticRecipes.com #recipe

Yesterday, I was in the mood for my favorite bar food flavor, buffalo chicken anything. I love buffalo chicken salads, sandwiches, and of course wings. There is one restaurant that my husband and I go to, and he only orders the buffalo chicken sandwich. So I thought it was about time that I start making it at home. It was so much better, tastier, and cheaper. You can use butter and hot sauce, or buy the prepared wing sauces. There are so many delicious prepared hot sauces, you can really get creative here. You can also make your own ranch or blue cheese dressings, or buy prepared ones. I prefer to have un-breaded chicken, but you cold easily batter and fry the chicken breasts. This is a great recipe you can easily take some short cuts from the grocery store by buying prepared items, or make everything homemade.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • kosher salt
  • pepper
  • olive oil
  • 1/4 cup tabasco sauce plus 3 tablespoons butter, or 1/2 cup wing sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • blue cheese or ranch dressing
  • lettuce
  • tomato
  • onions
  • buns

Blue cheese dressing

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 clove grated garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • a pinch of kosher salt

Ranch Dressing

  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh onion, from the root end
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon fresh chopped chives
  • 1 teaspoon freshly chopped parsley
  • kosher salt
  • pepper

Method

  1. Prepare vegetables for sandwich. Preheat skillet. Pound the chicken breasts out to 1/2-1 inch thickness with a cast iron skillet. Salt and pepper chicken. Sprinkle each breasts with a little paprika and cayenne pepper. Drizzle pan with olive oil. Brown chicken on each side and remove from skillet.

  3. To prepare dressings, combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
  4. Serve in warm buns topped with blue cheese or ranch.

    Lovin’ the spicy chicken! Thanks for sharing the ranch dressing. It’s Red’s favorite. Maybe I’ll surprise him with your home made dressing.

    This looks yummy! I just love the dressing dripping off the side. I too am a huge fan of buffalo chicken wings and the idea of a sandwich seems like something both my husband and I would enjoy. I also like the idea of not frying the chicken breast. Thanks for sharing and thanks for stopping by my blog :)

    I love all the flavors in this sandwich. And I think the teenager and hubby would love it even more! This is definitely on my “must make” list.

    I never thought of having buffalo chicken into a sandwich. I only eat buffalo wing. But now in a sandwich, I would love to make this.
