Sinful Saturday – Buffalo Chicken and Ranch/Blue Cheese Panini

Ok, maybe it wasn’t just Saturday I ate sinfully this week…but definitely had to try this out! 

You Will Need:

  • Chicken
  • Wing Sauce/Hot Sauce
  • Ciabatta rolls (or bread of choice)
  • Ranch (or Blue Cheese) Dressing
  • Sriracha Sauce (optional)
  • Cheese (I used Mozzarella, but most kinds would be good!)
  • Butter or Mayonnaise

I bought some natural chicken breasts and sliced them into thin slices and marinated them in the wing sauce for 30 minutes or so.  (You know, if you slightly freeze meat, it makes it much easier to slice!)  I decided to do this last minute, so that is what I did, but you could always bake the chicken and shred it or do which ever way you prefer.  I then put a little olive oil in a pan and then cooked the chicken.

While I was cooking the chicken, slice your roll and butter it or put some mayo on it to make sure your panini isn’t dry.  I then put a little cheese on the bottom of the roll and put some of my Amanda’s Special Sauce on it (just ranch mixed with Sriracha sauce…lol).  Then put your chicken on top of that when it is done.  Then put more cheese and sauce to your liking.  I then smushed it and put it in the panini press for 4 or 5 minutes.  The bread came out nice and crispy and the sandwich was a nice indulgence 🙂

I feel like I am missing some color in it, maybe next time I will have to dice a little bit of onion, jalepeno, and red pepper and shred the chicken.  Let me know what you discover!
