  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika, 1 /3 palm full
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder, 1/3 palm full
  • A drizzle extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1/2 cup, 4 ounces, cayenne pepper sauce, preferred brand Frank's Red Hot
  • Bib or leaf lettuce leaves

  • 8 ribs celery, cut into sticks

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Season chicken with salt, pepper, paprika and chili powder. Drizzle breast with a little extra virgin olive oil to coat. Pan grill chicken breasts 5 minutes on each side.

Place chicken breasts on bun bottoms and top with crisp lettuce. Combine sour cream, scallions and blue cheese and slather bun tops with blue cheese sour cream. Affix bun tops on sandwiches and serve with remaining sauce for dipping your veggies. Arrange Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches on dinner plates with red onion, celery and carrot sticks.

This was a great lunch. I will definitely making it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious, highly recommend. Full of flavor. I made these for my boyfriend and his friends while they watched NFL football - all of them loved it! The only changes I made was that i made them into sliders (cut the chicken breasts in half and mini used slider buns I also used greek yogurt instead of sour cream to make the blue cheese sauce and it was still a hit. We topped with Avocado and butter lettuce. I was told to "make this every weekend" for football snacks. I am definitely keeping this recipe and will make many times again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have been making this dish ever since I saw it on television years ago. I love it and so does everyone I've ever made it for!!! Franks Red Hot is the best sauce! I love the blue cheese mixed with the sour cream however my boyfriend is not partial to blue cheese, so I leave it out on his. He adds ranch dressing to his sandwich instead. I love the way the recipe has it. Its very easy to make and tastes amazing. I crave this dish!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The chicken was very good but im not a fan of the blue cheese instead i added chipotle and some mayo and tomatoe and ranch and it was amazing highly recommend the chicken part. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is fantastic, I make this recipe once a month. For my children I just cook the chicken with the spices and don't add the sauce at the end. For the adults in my family, I finish cooking the chicken with the hot sauce and butter to help infuse the flavor a bit. I don't bother with making the sandwiches, just cut the chicken up and make it into boneless wings with a side of celery and carrots. item not reviewed by moderator and published
PERFECT!! Everyone in the family (from my picky husband to my 4 year old loved this recipe. This is going into our dinner rotation. I never knew Buffalo Chicken was so easy and I'm kind of mad at myself for not trying this sooner! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yum - A Great Sandwich! We had it two nights in a row. The only changes I made were using an indoor grill pan, hollowing out the bread, and only topping with avocado. Easy and delicious - will be a regular dish in our home. item not reviewed by moderator and published
