Introduction

Inspired by a recipe on a blog, I decided to recreate it myself. Inspired by a recipe on a blog, I decided to recreate it myself.
Number of Servings: 3

Ingredients

    For the chicken salad
    (1) 10-ounce can of 98% fat free chicken
    2 Tbsp light mayo
    2 Tbsp hot wing sauce (I used Franks)
    Dash salt
    Celery salt (optional)

    For each sandwich:
    2 slices of light bread (I used Sara Lee Delightful bread)
    1 slice of cheddar cheese (sandwich style)
    1 tbsp. reduced-fat blue cheese crumbles
    2 tsp. buttery spread

Tips

Cheese will melt better if brought to room temperature first.


Directions

Drain and rinse the canned chicken. In a bowl, combine chicken, mayo, wing sauce, salt and celery salt, optional. I used 2 Tbsp wing sauce, use less if you like it less spicy. Set aside.

To assemble your grilled cheese, preheat your skillet, and butter one side one slice of bread with one tsp of buttery spread, and place facedown on skillet. Carefully sprinkle 1 tbsp. of reduced-fat blue cheese crumbles on the bread. Spread about 1/3 of the chicken salad on top of the blue cheese. Top with slice of cheddar, and put other slice of bread on top. Spread top with other tsp of buttery spread. Grill until brown and crispy on the bottom, just like a grilled cheese, and then flip to cook the other side. When finished, put on a plate and let sit a few minutes before cutting it and eating it.

Serving Size: Makes 3 servings of the chicken salad, and up to 3 sandwiches

Number of Servings: 3

  • We really enjoyed this! I also found it on a blog (navywifecook.com). I used ranch in place of the mayo in the chicken mixture and shredded cheddar instead of blue cheese. I also cooked it on our panini grill and left out the butter spread. We will definitely be having this again. - 5/31/13
