Last summer I posted about this buffalo chicken sandwich. It quickly became a favorite at our house and we had it all the time! But I've been trying to eat a little healthier these days, and as a result have stopped buying the breaded popcorn chicken (much to my sweet husband's dismay)
So I was really excited to revamp this sandwich and try and make it a tad healthier!
And... It was a hit! I actually like this one better than the original! This will definetly be a staple in our house this summer!
Grilled Buffalo Chicken Sandwich
makes 2 sandwiches
1/3 cup Franks hot sauce
2 TBS butter
1 large chicken breast
salt and pepper
Miracle Whip/Mayo (optional)
toppings: lettuce, tomato, onion, avacado, etc.
2 good quality hamburger buns
Heat your grill to Med- High. Split the chicken breast in half so you have 2 thinner fillets. Season the chicken with a little garlic powder, and s&p.
Grill the chicken for 15-20 minuted (depending on the temp of your grill and the thickness of your chicken)
While the chicken is cooking, melt butter in a small saucepan and add hot sauce. Simmer for a few minutes and remove from heat.
Once the chicken is cooked through, dunk in the buffalo sauce and allow to sit in the sauce for 4-5 minutes to soak up the sauce. Toast the hamburger buns and add the chicken and your toppings.
