Easy Buffalo Chicken Sandwich

Hold the phone.

Tonight’s dinner was fan-flippin’-tastic.

Who knew making a homemade buffalo chicken sandwich could be so simple and so tasty thanks to only two ingredients?

Exhibit A:

To begin making our sandwiches, I first baked two Murray’s family farmed chicken breasts in the oven at 400 degrees for approximately 25 minutes.

Once the chicken was fully cooked, I pulled it using two forks before tossing three ounces of the cooked meat in the buffalo sauce I made by combining one tablespoon of Franks RedHot Wings buffalo sauce and one tablespoon of grated Parmesan and Romano cheese.

Along with our buffalo chicken sandwiches, we enjoyed cold cucumber slices to distract our taste buds from some of the heat from the hot sauce.

If you’re a fan of buffalo chicken wings, you must make this sandwich!

When I saw Lisa make a buffalo chicken salad using this two-ingredient buffalo sauce that she saw on Hungry-Girl.com, I knew it would be a winner, and boy-oh-boy it is!

If you’re weary of the spiciness, don’t be! It definitely has a kick to it, but I’m terrible with spicy foods and I didn’t think it was too hot.


Easy Buffalo Chicken Sandwich (adapted from Hungry-Girl’s Buffalo Chicken Choppity Chop Salad)


  • One 3-ounce cooked chicken breast, pulled (You may also used canned chicken to save time)
  • 1 tbsp. Frank’s RedHot Wings Buffalo Sauce
  • 1 tbsp. Grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 whole wheat hamburger bun or sandwich thin


Combine pulled chicken, Frank’s RedHot Wings Buffalo Sauce and Parmesan cheese in a bowl until chicken is fully coated. Microwave approximately 35 seconds until warm. Place buffalo chicken on top of whole wheat bun and enjoy!

  1. Hey girl!
    Another super easy version of this is:

    Place 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts in the crockpot, add Frank’s red hot, add 1 packet of dry ranch dressing powder, a little water, and let it cook all day on low. Shred when you get home. Delish and easy!

  2. I saw you mention this earlier on Twitter and was looking forward to seeing the final product. My hubby would LOVE this!

  3. Another thing I’ve never had: a buffalo chicken wing…though it would probably be pretty easy to convince the boyfriend to introduce me. Looks great!

  4. I love BBQ tofu, but I never thought of using parm… I bet that’d work well, too!

  5. omg that looks AMAZING!!!

  6. that does look easy peasy! I have tried to pull chicken breasts before (bonless that is) and it was NOT easy! whats the secret!?

    • they have to be pretty moist (not dry and hard). definitely try cooking chicken breasts in chicken broth in a slow cooker on low for 6 hrs. they should pull very easily after that!

      • Hey there!! Another easy way to pull chicken is to cover the chicken with water in a pot (with a lid). Once the water is boiling, boil you chicken for 20 minutes and DONE!!! Shred your chicken with a fork or your fingers once cool enough!!!

  7. That looks like a must try for me! I’m a huge fan of anything BBQ or buffalo chicken!

  8. Definitely going on the must-eat list 🙂

  9. That looks amazing. I just added it to my Springpad account. Can’t wait to give it a whirl!

  10. that looks really tasty! i make a similar buffalo chicken dip that i love but i never thought to make it in sandwich form.

  11. Did you happen to catch Jessica’s recipe from How Sweet it Is for Buffalo Chicken Burgers? I’m thinking my hubby would die for these! 🙂

  12. Yum, love buffalo chicken anything!

  13. That looks delicious! This added to Jessica’s (www.howsweeteats.com) Buffalo Chicken Burger recipe…Boy, I am going to have a lot of buffalo themed meals coming up!

  14. yumm! i love franks!

  15. I don’t much care for the taste of buffalo sauce but I love the smell.

    Anyway, yours looks good! And it sounded pretty easy!!

  16. Yum! Buffalo chicken wings are one of my favorite foods!

  17. You can also throw this all into a crockpot for an even easier meal! I do it all the time and also do it with BBQ sauce. So easy and SO good! 🙂

  18. yum! also, jessica at how sweet it is made some buffalo burgers the other day…so good! i think i’m just in a buffalo mood…now i’m thinking about it in pizza 🙂

  19. I’ve made the Hungry girl salad into a pizza before just using a whole wheat tortilla as the pizza crust and baking it. But honestly, something about the parm mixed with the buffalo sauce did not agree with me and I ended up trashing it. Though I do like the suggestion of the slow cooker with buffalo and ranch packet since I like ranch dressing on side my buffalo wings, not blue cheese that normally accompanies them.

  20. a little tip I learned from Jenna’s blog…if you want cooked chicken in 10 minutes, poach it!!! super super easy!

  21. I do something really similar using greek yogurt mixed with Frank’s. Makes it a little more gooey if that is what you are going for, and if you put it on top of a salad, it doubles as dressing. PLUS more protein!

  22. I haven’t tried this combo before. Sounds delicious!

  23. Looks amazing, I’ve been on a buffalo chicken kick lately, so I’m gonna have to give this one a try, also! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  24. Mmm…that sounds good! I love buffalo wings! I’d probably use blue cheese instead of Parmesan just because nothing goes with hot wings like blue cheese.

  25. Looks good! If I ate meat I’d be all over this 😉

  26. OMG, there you go again making my mouth water! That sandwich looks awesome.

  27. Yum that dish looks delicious!

  28. I just tried that sauce last week for Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas, and it was really awesome. I can’t wait to use it again!

  29. Oh, no! in defense of squirrels, I decided i had to comment 🙂 I love them – love seeing their tiny little paws – how clever they are, how fun they are to watch. I lived in Florida for years, and moved up to Indiana now and have so few of them. (yes, send them up to me!) …

    My Nana despised t hem with a vengeance – they ate her veg garden, ate her flower bulbs, and she called them “little b******s” which I thought was hysterical. So whenever I’d travel, I’d always mail her a postal card of a squirrel/chipmunk as one of several from a state. you’d be surprised at how many states have a “welcome to X” with a pic of a chipmunk/squirrel on it!! ha ha. Enjoy your blog, as always.

  30. TOTALLY making this ASAP- I have a feeling it won’t last long in this house 🙂
