Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

You know how there are times where you get in the mood for a specific food?  Those times where no other food will satisfy your hunger, let alone your craving?  Well, the other night I was in one of those moods.  I NEEDED something that had buffalo chicken incorporated into in one way or another.  I didn't have any wings on hand, so hot wings were out of the question.  So what is a foodie to do when they are craving something?  Make their own recipe to satisfy that craving.  That's how these buffalo chicken sandwiches came about.

From the first bite my craving was satisfied!  This sandwich encompassed every single element I was craving.  The end result was nothing less than amazing, but there is always room for improvement.  I think next time I will not only add the blue cheese crumbles, but homemade blue cheese as well.  These would also be good with the addition of scallions or cabbage to give a little more flavor and texture.     

My favorite thing about these sandwiches had to be the sauce.  This hot wing sauce made the meal.  It was the perfect mix of spices, tang, salt with and undertone of butter.  It was everything you expect from a buffalo sauce.  I loved the spice from the sauce; the heat from the hot sauce as well as the cayenne pepper not only hits you initially but after you've finished your bite.  It his every flavor note that is desired.  This is now our "go to" sauce recipe.
