Ahhh 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!
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!
