What do you get when you combine a childhood favorite with bar food? Today’s Two for Tuesday! This is a super easy dinner that my fiancé and I made a couple weeks ago: Buffalo Chicken Grilled Cheese Sandwich. It’s comfort food with a kick! It’s all the flavors of buffalo chicken wings rolled up into a golden brown grilled cheese sandwich. It was easy to make and seriously delicious…we had no leftovers! Recipe makes two sandwiches.
1/2 cup cooked shredded chicken, warm
2 tablespoon hot sauce
1 tablespoon mayo (optional)
2 tablespoon carrot, grated
2 tablespoon celery, sliced
2 tablespoon green or red onion, sliced or diced
2 tablespoon blue cheese, room temperature, crumbled
1 cup cheddar cheese, room temperature, grated
4 slices bread
2 tablespoon butter, room temperature
Mix the chicken, hot sauce, mayo, carrot, celery and onion in a small bowl.
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.
Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat.
Add the sandwich and grill until golden brown and the cheese has melted, about 2-4 minutes per side.
