Buffalo Ranch Chicken Grilled Cheese



Oh my gosh...I am SOOO tired . I worked with the personal trainer today for about an hour and a half, which was great, but she used muscles I didn't know existed. Well, I am very aware of them now. I kind of liked it better when I didn't know they were there.

I feel good though! I'm all kinds of slow and moving around like a 90 year old woman, but I feel good.

As some of you may have noticed, I've been on a kick for buffalo chicken lately, which is odd since I hate  spicy foods. Even the littlest amount of heat is too much for me. Something about buffalo chicken though...it's like a form of self-torture. I love the taste, but it burns. Yeah...! don't know.

This is a great quick and easy weeknight dinner, or lunch, or just a recipe to try when you want to use up some shredded chicken you've got lying around. Try it with blue cheese, try it just with ranch, whatever you like. Just try it, cause it's ooey and gooey and goooood!

1 tablespoon ranch dressing

1-2 tablespoons Frank's hot sauce

Directions

1. In a medium bowl, combine the ranch dressing, cream cheese, crumbled Feta and shredded cheddar. Stir until smooth.

2. In a another bowl, toss the chicken in the hot sauce until completely coated.

3. Spread the cheese/ranch mixture on one side of 4 slices of bread (this is for two sandwiches). Top two of those slices with shredded chicken, and top that with the other two pieces of bread.

4. Spread some butter on the outside of the sandwiches and grill either in a heated pan or a hot griddle until golden brown.

  1. OMG (Oh My Goodness)!! I just found a link to this from checking out Grilled Cheese Sandwiches which happen to be a favorite of my 'now-grown' family and grandchildren. I can't believe there are no comments on here. If nothing else, there are so many 'brats' on the computer now days. I'll have to check you out on Facebook since I notice on here that you have lots of fans on there. Your life sounds like a carbon copy of mine -- only much younger. My dad was career Army since WWII days through Nam. Thanks to him we were actually stationed in a Navy town (Corpus Christi, TX -- he was an advisor to the TX National Guard) where I met & went to high school with my future husband. My husband retired from the Air Force almost 30 years ago. Our home is now in the Denver area. We were stationed here for three years in the 60's and both of our sons were born at Fitzsimons Army Medical Center -- now closed but is a rapidly growing medical complex including a new VA Hospital which strangely enough our youngest son is actually working on. We spent a little over seven years in Colorado Springs during the 70's and our daughter considered it home since she was only six months old when we moved from FL (her birth place). When retirement was approaching, we chose to return to CO and Gary was fortunate to find a job here. Like you, I love to cook and try new recipes. I look forward to trying many of yours. Thank you so much, Sharon
