Recipe

Whenever I see a buffalo chicken sandwich on a menu, I have a really hard time not ordering it. Unfortunately they are usually fried, covered in butter, and come with a ton of melted cheese. Not that that doesn't taste amazing, but it definitely doesn't fit into my healthy eating goals. So instead of ordering these when I am out, I have started making a healthier version at home. It starts with a humble chicken breast that's quickly grilled and then tossed in some buffalo sauce with a hint of butter for richness. The the burger is topped with a simple yogurt and blue cheese sauce and any veggies you like. It's easy, quick, and will satisfy even the most serious buffalo chicken cravings.
