As many long time readers are aware, I am a big fan of buffalo chicken wings and I have been having fun experimenting with spinning the flavours of the buffalo chicken wings in different dishes. After having one too many boring chicken club sandwiches at a restaurant I have also been on a kind of mini quest to come up with tasty new chicken club sandwich recipes. The idea to combine the two dishes seemed not only natural but really tasty and thus the buffalo chicken club sandwich was born! The basic chicken club sandwich normally consists of the chicken, bacon, lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise and I was thinking that coating the grilled chicken breast in buffalo hot sauce could only make things better. In addition to the buffalo hot sauce, I included some crumbled tangy blue cheese to finished the sandwich off and I served it with a side of carrot and celery sticks along with a blue cheese sauce for dipping.
