It's easy to turn a few simple chicken breasts into a delicious meal, but what if you only want to make lunch for 2 people? Recipes for larger quantities can be difficult to break down into smaller numbers of servings because the amount of seasonings and spices has to be reduced to such a small measurement.
This recipe for Buffalo Chicken Breast Sandwiches is a quick and easy to make lunch that you can prepare with ingredients most people have on hand. The sauce can be made spicier by adding the red pepper flakes, but if you just want a little heat, leave them out and the sandwich is just as tasty.
2 Sandwich Rolls or Buns
1-1/2 TB Butter
1/2 tsp White Vinegar
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 TB Franks Red Hot Sauce
1/4 tsp Red Chili Flakes, optional
Leaf or Romaine Lettuce Leaves, optional
Sliced Provolone Cheese
Lightly butter the inside of each of the sandwich buns. In a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, place the buns in the skillet open side down and heat until lightly brown. Remove from the skillet and place on 2 plates.
In the same skillet, melt the butter, then add the vinegar, black pepper, garlic powder and Frank's sauce. Stir to combine and heat for 4-5 minutes until garlic powder is fully blended and the mixture is warm. Pour the sauce into 2 small serving dishes, leaving 1-2 teaspoons of sauce in the skillet.
Lightly season the chicken fillets with salt and pepper and add them to the skillet. Grill chicken breasts for 4-5 minutes on each side until juices run clear. The butter and sauce in the skillet will coat the chicken nicely as it cooks.
Place chicken breasts on the buns and top with lettuce, provolone cheese, a spoonful of the Buffalo sauce and then top of bun. Serve with carrot and celery sticks and blue cheese salad dressing.
