Buffalo Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Buffalo Chicken Salad Sandwiches from KatiesCucina.comAhhh buffalo chicken lovers unite. Last month, I created a recipe for Buffalo Chicken Salad Sandwiches. My friend Julie invited me over for her annual Bunko night to raise money for 1,000 Cooks for the Cure® and I was looking to bring something that I could make ahead. Earlier this year, I tested a recipe for tropical chicken salad sandwiches. My husband and I instantly fell in love with them. So I knew I would make that recipe but had extra chicken and that’s when I decided to create a chicken salad recipe that involved buffalo sauce!

Buffalo Chicken Salad Sandwiches from

I’ve tested this recipe a few times now. The first time their was a hint of buffalo sauce. The second time way too much, and of course the third time is a charm. It might sound like a lot of buffalo sauce, but trust me it’s not. It gives it the exact kick it needs and is not over powering.  On a side note, I absolutely hate these photos. I photographed these sandwiches a handful of times and still could not achieve any photos that I was in love with… so these will do. I promise you that these Buffalo Chicken Salad Sandwiches taste much better than they look!

    Chicken salad sandwiches are my most favorite sandwich! Now I’m going to need to add buffalo sauce to them.

      Meagan, I’m the same way! I didn’t start enjoying chicken salad until this year and now I’m getting crazy with all the variations!

    Awesome recipe, Katie! I am just enamored with this sandwich idea. Hubby and I are bona fide Buffalo Chicken anything fanatics. You just made my recipe round-up for the Buffalo Chicken category. Thanks so much for sharing!

      Thanks Stacy! I hope it lives up to your expectations! 🙂

    These sounds pretty damn good! Where can I get buffalo sauce? Is that like Frank’s Red Hot sauce?

    • Katie replied on August 10th, 2013 at 1:10 pm

      Thanks Amy! Yes, I used Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Sauce!!!

    Great idea, Katie! I also find sandwiches to be very challenging to photograph.

    • Katie replied on August 13th, 2013 at 10:42 am

      Glad to read I’m not alone on photographing sandwiches.

    I have to make these. Could I leave out the bleu cheese? Bleu cheese is my nemesis unfortunately.

    • Katie replied on August 13th, 2013 at 10:41 am

      Justin you could definitely leave out bleu cheese. I’m not a fan of it and didn’t mind it in the sandwiches!

  8. Suzanne posted on August 11, 2013 at 10:17 pm (#)

    I remember these! Glad to hear you tweaked the amount of buffalo sauce.

    • Katie replied on August 13th, 2013 at 10:41 am

      They were so good!!! And better now with more buffalo sauce!

    By bleu cheese, do you mean crumbles or bleu cheese dressing?


    • Katie replied on September 17th, 2013 at 7:49 am

      Hi Marla–I used crumbled bleu cheese that I just mixed into the chicken salad. But I’m sure you could use bleu cheese dressing if you would like.
