I don't think you can ever get enough Frank's Red Hot sauce and when I found this recipe in Cook this, Not that, I immediately knew I would make it. The red onions and blue cheese sauce just looked so appealing! I showed the photo to my nephew and he and I agreed that would be our dinner that evening!
Mom showed me a potato recipe that we decided would be a good side for the sandwich (will post that one next!) and so she got busy with the potatoes while I assembled everything for the sandwiches. When all was ready and the boys had fixed their plates, we went out on the back porch to enjoy the sunshine that finally came out. I swear, before Mom even sat down with her plate, Austin had already devoured more than half his sandwich and it was gone in no time flat. We heard "that was really good", he ate some more potatoes, then offered to help clean up. Hmm he will have a lucky wife one day! My brother and SIL are doing a excellent job of bringing these boys up!
This sandwich was very quick and easy to throw together. I stuck with the ingredient list, but I switched up the method of cooking the chicken some. This is a definite keeper sandwich. Hope you will enjoy!
Buffalo Chicken and Blue Cheese Sandwiches
Recipe from Cook this, Not that and method slightly adapted
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/3 cup greek-style yogurt
juice of half a lemon
salt and pepper to taste
4 chicken breasts (6 oz each)
1/2 tbsp chili powder
1 red onion, sliced
3 tbsp Frank's Red Hot Sauce
2 Tbsp butter
4 large romaine lettuce leaves
4 sesame buns, toasted (optional for toasting!)
Season chicken with chili powder and salt. Set aside.
Mix yogurt, blue cheese and lemon juice together. Set aside.
Saute Red onion slices in a frying pan on medium heat - using cooking spray to prevent sticking. Cook until onions are soft and begin to turn brown. Remove from pan and set aside.
Spray frying pan with more cooking spray and cook chicken on low heat until cooked thru, turning occasionally.
Melt butter and mix with Red Hot sauce. Place chicken in sauce and toss to coat.
Assemble sandwich - bottom bun, lettuce leaf, chicken, onions, blue cheese dressing and top off with bun top! Enjoy and listen to your nephew go on about how good it was. ;)
