Buffalo Chicken French Bread

This takes few ingredients and can be made in 30 min. tops! My BFF Sarah introduced me to it a few weeks ago when we made it at her house and WOW. It was SO good. I had to re-make for the hubs cause I knew he’d love it. Original recipe is from a great website called How Sweet It Is (which she also introduced me to). YUM.

INGREDIENTS: (This is for using both halves of french bread. I only used 1 half and slightly adjusted all portions of ingredients)

  • 1 loaf of french bread, cut in half 
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces 
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 2/3 cup buffalo wing sauce + extra for drizzling (I used frank’s)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons ranch dressing
  • 12 ounces of any cheese to your liking (original recipe: fontina cheese)
  • 6 ounces crumbled gorgonzola cheese
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch of cilantro, chopped

Step One:

Cut your french bread in half and place it in the oven on broil for about 2ish minutes. CAREFULLY WATCH SO YOU DON’T BURN (ahem). Just needs to get a little bit crisp and golden, but not too much. While in oven get your green onions and cilantro chopped up.

Step Two:

Chop and cook up your chicken with 2 tbsp of olive oil and some salt & pepper. Cook about 10-12 minutes till each piece is cooked all the way through, then stir in your garlic.

Step Three:

Step Four:

While chicken is sizzling, put about 3 tbsp (more if you want) of your ranch onto your bread. Then drizzle a little bit of your buffalo wing sauce on. Once your condiments are on spread some of your cheese (I used mozzarella shredded).

Step Five:

Place your chicken on top of the cheese. And sprinkle on your gorgonzola and then more of your shredded cheese. Prep done!

Step Six:

Place back in your oven on broil and again WATCH IT (I learned all broilers really are different so can’t trust a recipe’s time instructions sometimes). Keep in just until the cheese on top is melted.

Step Seven:

Last step throw on your green onions and cilantro and voila! Ready to serve. Crunchy, gooey, cheesy, spicy goodness. Will make this again for sure.
