I never used to be into buffalo wings or anything "buffalo" flavored!!! I know what you're thinking.....who the hell DOESN'T like buffalo wings? A krazy lady, that is who! ;) It wasn't until about a year ago that I actually started getting a taste for that spicy, savory sauce. Once those taste buds were activated, though, it was ON! I couldn't get enough. I craved buffalo wings and anything with buffalo wing sauce on it, all the time! Well, one weekend, the hubs and I (and a few friends) headed out to Blythe to chill in the water. We stayed in this "resort" place. People own homes in this "resort" and it's a little tight nit community. It was a cute little place. Inside this community was a little restaurant and we ate there one night. They had a buffalo chicken sandwich on the menu. I read what was in the sandwich, and me being "healthy" and calorie conscience, I asked for them to leave off the ranch dressing and to put it on a wheat bun instead of white. Now, this little place was nothing fancy, but super cheap (4 of ate there for a whopping $24!!!!! Yes, you read that correctly, that was NOT a type-o......$24 for 4 people to eat, including beverages!) Anyways, our food came and I was set back by what was placed in front of me. I guess they didn't have wheat buns, so I got it on wheat bread, and not some high quality wheat bread, like Wonder Bread wheat bread. I kept an open mind, though, and took a bite........OMFG!!!! This was the most delicious buffalo chicken sandwich I had ever sank my teeth in to. I realized that I needed to make this at home, so that is exactly what I did.....only with MY spin on it! ;)
So here you have it.....my Kickin' Buffalo Chicken Sandwich.....in it's ghetto glory and all! :)
1 thinly sliced chicken breast, seasoned with whatever you want (I used garlic and onion powder and fresh ground pepper).
2 TBSP Buffalo Wing Sauce ( I use the kind by Sweet Baby Rays since there is no going wrong with SBR!!!)
1 slice pepper jack cheese (here is my spin on it! I love bleu cheese, but I like a good kick, so I used pepper jack)
1 slice of tomato
2 leaves iceberg lettuce
2-4 slices of onion
2 slices whole wheat bread (I prefer to use Orowheat's Double Fiber bread)
The special Buffalo Wing Sauce!
Super yummy, healthy bread
My frozen chicken breast.....needs to be grilled.....and no, that is not a breast enhancer chicken cutlet....I don't own any of those, ok!!!!!!!
-Grill chicken until it is no longer pink inside
-Spread 1 TBSP of buffalo wing sauce on each slice of bread
-Put completely cooked chicken on one slice of bread and cover with cheese
-Top with lettuce, tomato, onion, and other slice of bread
I cut it in half and eat one half and save the other for later.
Calories: (half of the sandwich) 210
Enjoy with any side you want!!!! :) I got french fries with mine at the restaurant (so I guess I wasn't being TOOOOOO calorie conscience....lol), or at home, I accompany it with some baked Cheetos! Mmmmmmm!!!!!
