Time for this week’s recipe.  I’ve discovered a low-calorie and low hassle option for one of my favorites: Buffalo Chicken.  I don’t know why, but I get a craving for buffalo chicken about once a week.  But, because of the high calorie count and the pain and mess of frying them up, I’ll get over the craving and pass on satisfying my taste buds.  This recipe is lower in calories because the chicken breast is grilled and not fried.  The blue cheese dressing is lower in fat because we use greek yogurt instead of sour cream. Choose a hearty bun to stand up to this flavor.  You can make it a whole wheat bun for added fiber content.  This recipe almost makes buffalo chicken sound healthy.  Not a bad thing!  The grilling of the onions softens the texture and the flavor. Less onion breath afterwards.  Remember to but the lettuce on the bottom bun.  It will help to prevent it absorbing the liquid quickly and turning to mush.  A little trick to remember for all your sandwiches.  Write that one down.  Ok, here we go…

Grilled Buffalo Chicken Sandwich

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • juice of half a lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (4-6 ounces each)
  • 1/2 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 red oni0n sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons hot sauce (I use Cajun Chef.  Franks Red Hot is good too)
  • 4 romaine lettuce leaves
  • 4 sesame seed buns, toasted

Directions:

Preheat a non-stick grill or grill pan.

Combine the blue cheese, yogurt, lemon juice and a pinch of salt and pepper.  Stir and set aside.

Season the chicken with salt, pepper and chili powder.  Add the breasts to the hot grill and cook for 5 minutes on one side before flipping them.

Add the onion to the grills perimeter.  Continue to cook the chicken until firm and springy to the touch, about 4-5 minutes on the other side.  Remove all to a plate.

Combine the butter and hot sauce and brush the mixture all over the chicken breasts.

Place a leaf of romaine on the base of each bun.  Top with a chicken breast and spoon on some of the blue cheese sauce.  Add grilled onions and the top half of the bun.  Makes 4 servings.

Enjoy!
