WHAT GOING ON HERE:

buffalo chicken: for this recipe, it is your pretty standard buffalo chicken. thinly pounded chicken, spices, flour, and egg dredge. the heat comes from the buffalo sauce. feel free to use your favorite. for mine i use my favorite hot sauce and add a bit more kick with dried spices.

blue cheese bun: i melt the blue cheese straight on the bun. blue cheese can handle the heat. for my buns, i throw the cheese straight onto the pan with butter, once it melts the blue cheese i flip the bun to grill on the other side.

cayenne- garlic bacon: cayenne and garlic bacon is bacon dusted with a two-ingredient spice blend. the heat from the cayenne and mustard powder enhances the salty smokiness of the bacon. the fresh garlic adds a lingering spice as well.

TIPS & TRICKS TO THE BEST HOT BUFFALO CHICKEN  SANDWICH

spread the seasoning: the seasoning works perfectly for 8 slices of bacon. it adds a nice kick from the addition of mustard powder and cayenne. the garlic adds some nice zest that roasts up nicely with the bacon.

thin chicken: thin chicken is the key to a good chicken sandwich, for me, i like to remove the tenderloin before i start pounding the breast. i remove it with a knife, toss it in a Ziploc for later,

fry the buns:: frying the bun makes for a better everything. for this recipe you’ll want to fry the buns in butter, flip them on the lid and toss in a handful of blue cheese crumbles to melt. this works best if your blue cheese has had a chance to come to room temperature.
