On Saturday night (or as I like to call it, “Football Eve”), I was camping and cooking Smoked Pork, Apple, and Sauerkraut Sandwiches, I found myself fretting about a good Game Day Lunch for Sunday. I figured that I had some Sauerkraut, so I (in a moment I’m not terribly proud of) asked my wife to pick up a pack of hot dogs from the store if she had time. Her response was akin to, “Don’t worry about it. I got this.”
Knowing that anything she was planning would beat hot dogs by a country mile, I said I was intrigued and formally withdrew my hotdog request. Boy, am I glad I did…because the idea she came up with and the sandwich she made was one of the best I’ve ever had! Not only did she make this sandwich…she also made Coleslaw on the side!
AND, to top it all off, this meal was better than good luck! It willed the Bills to a glorious fish squishing to the tune of a 35-0 shutout! I think I may need to cede football food to her…especially since one of my most recent game day meals got Buffalo eliminated from the 2020 AFC Championship Game (yes, I take full responsibility).
Time: 15 Minutes (Plus time if not using a rotisserie chicken)
- Pretzel Bun
- Rotisserie Chicken (or pulled chicken)
- Buffalo Sauce (go with Anchor Bar Sauce if you can)
- Blue Cheese Dressing
- Optional: Crumbled Blue Cheese (if you really want to go all in on Blue Cheese)
- Pull your rotisserie chicken meat off the bones, and remove the skin. If you’re making your own pulled chicken, we suggest using a crockpot and braising chicken breast meat so that it shreds nicely.
- Use two forks to shred your meat, and transfer to a large bowl.
- Dice some celery, and add it into your bowl with your chicken.
- Pour in your favourite Buffalo Sauce and Blue Cheese Dressing.
- Stir to fully combine all of your ingredients, and then heat everything in a pan or microwave.
- As your buffalo chicken heats, cut your pretzel buns.
- When your buffalo chicken is piping hot, scoop copious amounts onto your pretzel bun. If using, top it off with crumbled blue cheese before placing your top bun onto your sandwich.
- Plate, devour, and enjoy!
