- Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder, and paprika on both sides. drizle with olive oil and rub to evenly distribute. Place on preheated grill, and cook for 3-5 minutes, or until juices run clear (depending on thickness of chicken breasts).
- While chicken is cooking, combing bleu cheese, sour cream, and sliced scallions. Set aside.
- In a small sauce pan, combine pepper sauce and butter over low heat, and allow butter to melt.
- Preheat griddle or non stick skillet over med-med high heat. Slice sandwich rolls, and place them cut side down on the skillet. Allow to toast until lightly browned. Remove from skillet.
- To assemble, spread the bun bottoms with the bluecheese mixture. Take a chicken breast and coat it in the hot pepper sauce, then place on the bottom bun. Add top bun.
This is a wonderful, quick meal. My teenage son insists I make it at least every other week! I made a mix of the spices needed so I can just sprinkle it over the chicken, then pan fry the chicken, and pour the buffalo sauce over the chicken in the pan to let it soak for a while. I serve it with coleslaw on the sandwich, and seasoned fries on the side.
Quite a good recipe! Wasn't sure if the sauce was supposed to use cream cheese or sour cream so I used the sour cream. I added some garlic and onion powders to the spice mix. Yummy!
Anyone use cream cheese as the recipe suggest or sour cream?
