Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

I found this recipe online and made a few changes to suit what I had available. If you have leftover grilled chicken, use it instead of the pre-cooked chicken strips. I like to use homemade blue cheese dressing. These are very sloppy sandwiches so be sure to have lots of napkins or a wet washcloth handy! Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 tablespoons Frank's red hot sauce

  • 4 hoagie rolls, split
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce

  1. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low to low heat. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add the hot sauce, barbecue sauce, and chili powder and stir to combine.
  2. Add the chicken and cook the mixture uncovered over medium-low heat for five minutes, or until heated through.
  3. Spoon chicken onto bun bottoms; top with lettuce and blue cheese dressing. Top with bun tops.

Doubled the recipe and did the whole thing in a crock pot with frozen chicken breasts on high for 4 hours. Shredded the chicken in the crock, stirred to combine, and served at our monthly "game night". Served with a celery/raddish/carot slaw tossed in bleu cheese dressing. A H-U-G-E hit! Thank you ever so much for this crowd-pleasing recipe!

My family loves this recipe and now prefers it to Sloppy Joes. I also use any leftover baked chicken or rotisserie chicken from the deli and throw everything into the crockpot to warm so it's a no fuss delicious meal for the whole family. I serve the sandwiches with crunchy baked potato wedges, blue cheese dressing for dipping and pickle spears. Thanks for posting.

Really good! At first glance I thought the recipe meant breaded chicken strips, so that's what we used. It was delicious! We skipped the blue cheese dressing as half of us can't do dairy.
