Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

It's back to school time.

If you're like me, that makes dinner time crazy and hectic!

Working full time, plus running kids to and from all of their extra-curriculars... it's challenging to get dinner on the table at a decent time.

On busy nights like that, Rotisserie Chicken is your friend!!
(really, it's always your friend!)

As is, you can just add a couple sides and dinner is served.

Or just pull it apart to toss into sandwiches or quesadillas or to top hearty dinner salads.

Look at them.

Aren't they beautiful?

They exist solely to make your life easier!

Take advantage of that!!

These are wicked easy!

Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches
1 Rotisserie Chicken
Frank's Red Hot Sauce
Ranch Dressing
Blue Cheese, crumbled
Sandwich Rolls
Lettuce

No real measurements here. Everything is pretty much to your taste/liking.

Combine Ranch Dressing with Crumbled Blue Cheese.

You could just use blue cheese dressing... but I like to combine it myself.

Put shredded rotisserie chicken in a separate bowl.
Photobucket

Add Frank's Red Hot.

Like is saucier? Add more sauce!

Drier you say? Don't put in as much!

This is so fast and easy, I have time to grill the buns.

They came out so nice and golden brown.

Add some shreddy lettuce.

Some of that moist delicious Buffalo Chicken.

A big dollop of Ranchy Blue Cheese Sauce.

And in less than 15 minutes... you're sitting at the table, talking about the new cute boy/girl in school... or which cheers they're practicing for the big game on Saturday... or the new plays for that big game... how much they love/hate their new math teacher... the new songs they're learning on their instruments...

Anyway... in less than 15 minutes your sitting at the table!

You can't beat that!!

Don't you hate it when that final shot is blurry... even though you took at least six of them!!

Everyone not eating at the same time tonight? These are also wicked easy to prep ahead so they can make sandwiches as they come and go.

Part of your night just got easier!

Now if only I could get someone to shred the chicken for me! I would be so happy! ;-) LOL I know, that's so lazy. I've def used these chickens to save my butt on nights I don't feel like cooking. I love your idea of turning them into buffalo chicken sammys. Delish!

Those chickens sure make life easy sometimes. My grown sons and hubby would love these, they are into the whole wings and blue cheese thing. The sandwiches looked beautiful, love the toasted bun, I think that always make a sandwich taste better.

I love buffalo chicken anything. I usually just eat roasted chickens as roasted chickens, but now I have seen the light - use them to make something else! Brilliant!
