Buffalo Chicken & Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Buffalo Chicken & Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Do you love Buffalo Wings? Well this is a GREAT spin-off!

My daughter-in-law Tawni introduced me to this magnificent sandwich and I’m telling you it’s fabulous. I’m not a hot sauce girl, but this is a perfect balance of just a little hot, which of course you can add more, or have a bowl on the side to dip it in – and a whole lot of A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!  You can serve this to guests, for dinner, the big game, family game night, or just because you want something really good. 

Don’t be intimidated by the list. It’s easy, simple to put together, and it’s broken down so you can make it up quick. Click on over and let’s get started.
