Buffalo Chicken Sandwich


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.
