Recipe 12.3: Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

October 16, 2010 in Chicken, Sandwich, The Weekly Menus and Recipes

You know how much we love our buffalo chicken over here! Sometimes I get such a craving for it; when it strikes, I always avoid the greasy, fatty, wings and opt instead for lighter options like my buffalo chicken salad, or this buffalo chicken sandwich. You get all the flavor, but I find it so much more satisfying! Serve your sandwiches alongside sliced celery and/or carrots for a nice cooling crunch!

Ingredients:

2 cups green leaf lettuce, washed and sliced

4 roma tomatoes, washed and sliced

1 bunch celery, washed and cut into short pieces

1 bunch carrots, peeled, washed, and cut into short pieces

1 tbs. olive oil

salt and pepper

1 lb. boneless, skinless, chicken tenderloins

1/4 cup hot sauce

2 tbs. butter

1 loaf sliced bread (I like the .99 WF Rustic Italian bread)

1/4 cup cheese, your choice (we used mozzarella because we had it on hand. The best would be blue cheese, but anything would be delicious)

Directions:

Season chicken with salt and pepper. Heat oil in large skillet, over medium heat. Add chicken and cook until lightly browned, about 4 minutes each side.

While chicken cooks, prepare all produce and bread.

Also while chicken cooks, prepare hot sauce by melting butter in a small saucepan. Once melted, add hot sauce. Mix to combine and allow to simmer. Once chicken is finished, add to saucepan. Toss to coat chicken.

Assemble sandwiches: two tenderloins tossed in hot sauce, 1/2 cup lettuce, 4 slices tomato, and light layer of cheese. Cut sandwiches in half and serve alongside celery and/or carrot sticks.
