i had a revelation. buttermilk. it made this recipe...truly. i am in love with buffalo wings. okay, let's be honest- anything buffalo. i was determined to re-create.
buffalo chicken sandwiches
4 chicken breasts
1/2 cup hot sauce (we use frank's wing sauce)
2 tbl melted butter
1/2 c buttermilk
1 c flour
1/4 c canola oil
crumbled blue cheese
4 whole wheat buns
1. prep your dredging bowls. one with buttermilk, one with the flour, and the other with the hot sauce and butter combined. dredge chicken breasts in buttermilk first, followed by flour.
2. heat a saute pan with canola oil until hot. (but not too hot!) add chicken breasts. cook 5-7 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
3. dredge cooked chicken breasts in hot sauce.
4. build your sandwich with buffalo chicken, topped with crumbled blue cheese and lettuce.
