It's been a while since I posted about a food and beer combo so I figured I'd share something we've served a number of times recently. This recipe comes from Kraft Kitchens. These Buffalo Chicken sandwiches are easy to prepare. They're quite tasty, and can be served as a main course or as a snack while watching the game on TV. A friend who does not normally eat chicken enjoyed them recently, and then asked for the recipe!
The shredded chicken is heated with hot pepper sauce and water. For the dressing prepare a mixture of mayonnaise, ranch dressing, chopped celery, and blue cheese. The chicken, dressing, and shredded cheddar cheese is spooned onto small buns to make a sandwich. We like to use small, "slider" sized buns.
This spicy sandwich goes great with a hop-forward American pale ale or IPA. We've recently been enjoying these with Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale. Even though the meal takes less than 20 minutes to prepare, it just seems right to be enjoying a beer while preparing the sandwiches too.
