Free Recipe Wednesday #2 (Buffalo Chicken Grilled Cheese Sandwich)

Here is today's second Free Recipe Wednesday post and as promised it's another adult twist on the grilled cheese sandwich. I've had buffalo chicken strips, buffalo chicken wings, and even buffalo chicken dip (which is amazing by the way) but I can't say I've ever had a Buffalo Chicken Grilled Cheese Sandwich. This sandwich has everything you might normally get when you order something like buffalo chicken wings at your local wing restaurant. It's got the hot buffalo chicken part of course but also uses blue cheese, celery, and other veggies you might normally get on the side with your buffalo chicken wings. I have high hopes for this sandwich and I'm sure it'll be amazing. Give it a try and post your comments below letting me know what you think about it.

Buffalo Chicken Grilled Cheese Sandwich

  • 1/4 cup Cooked Shredded Chicken, warm
  • 1 tablespoon Hot Sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon Mayo (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon Carrot, grated
  • 1 tablespoon Celery, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon Green or Red Onion, sliced or diced
  • 1 tablespoon Crumbled Blue Cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese, room temperature
  • 2 Slices Bread
  • 1 tablespoon Butter, room temperature

1. Combine the chicken, hot sauce, mayo, carrot, celery and onion in a small bowl; mix well.
2. Butter the outside of each slice of bread, sprinkle half of the cheeses on the inside of one slice of bread, top with the buffalo chicken salad, the remaining cheese and finally the other slice of bread.
3. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat.
4. Add the sandwich and grill until golden brown and the cheese has melted, about 2-4 minutes per side.
