I love grilled cheese, and I love chicken smothered in Buffalo sauce. The only logical answer? Combine the two into a fantastic buffalo chicken grilled cheese sandwich. You start by shredding chicken, and combine it with carrots, celery, and onion to add a nice crunch to the sandwich. Toss it in hot sauce, ranch dressing and cheddar cheese and grill it like you normally would with grilled cheese. The result is a cheesy sandwich stuffed with buffalo chicken – perfect for a quick weeknight dinner.
