I used leftover chicken from my buffalo chicken salad to make this sandwich. I toasted my bread, chose to add blue cheese sauce, and I added diced chives. However, a buffalo chicken melt sounds pretty good too in retrospect. Also, as you can see Newman was very interested in this dish, and he approved.
- Heat your oven to 400 F. Place a chicken breast on a baking sheet and bake for 30-45 minutes (45 minutes if the chicken is thicker than an inch).
- In a ramekin, mix 4 Tbsp melted butter and 6 Tbsp hot sauce. This is a mild sauce. Once the chicken has an internal temperature of 165 F, tear your chicken with 2 forks, or beat with an electric mixer.
- Place into a bowl, add the buffalo sauce, and toss until coated.
- Place shredded buffalo chicken on toast, add ranch/blue cheese, and other desired topping such as diced chives, lettuce, diced onion, or cheese.
