Game Night Buffalo Chicken Sandwich + Beyond Shelter Charity

in Uncategorized

I made this sandwich for charity!

And not just any charity, but my favorite charity here in Los Angeles called Beyond Shelter.  Their mission is to combat homelessness in Los Angeles–and if you’ve ever been to LA you know that it’s a very large problem. Beyond Shelter helps families with everything from housing and employment to kitchen supplies, childcare and clothing. They basically assist families with everything that goes into getting a second chance.  Yay, for second chances, right?

Since I’ve now convinced you that Beyond Shelter is the most awesome charity ever, this means you now must vote for my sandwich (even if you’re a vegan and don’t eat chicken) at Momversation.  The poll is on the right handside of the page. If my sandwich wins Tyson Chicken will grant Beyond Shelter $5,000!!! That’s a lot of money. We can do this!!

And to top it all off…you can watch a video with me talking about the sandwich.  Awwwwkward.

P.S. Watching myself on the internets will never make me NOT cringe. Like hearing my voice on an answering machine. Terrible.

P.P.S. This soundwich is actually perfect for The Super Bowl. It has a blue cheese aioli.  Chicken tossed in hot wing sauce. It’s simple, easy and amazing!

Game Night Buffalo Chicken Sandwich

Yields 4 Sandwiches

Bleu Cheese Aioli
1 cup of bleu cheese, crumbled
1 1/2 cup of mayonnaise
Salt and pepper to taste

Chicken
4 Tyson Chicken Breast Fillets
Store-bought Wing Sauce

Sandwich
Good quality buns
Lettuce (sturdy lettuce like romaine)
Tomato

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 425 F.

For the bleu cheese aioli, grab a food processor and add the crumbled bleu cheese, mayonnaise, and, salt and pepper. Pulse for 10-15 seconds, or until thoroughly combined. Remove from processor and set aside.

On a baking sheet, place chicken breasts and cook in oven for 18-22 minutes. Remove from oven and toss with hot wing sauce. Then place back on the baking sheet and top with a slice of provolone. Place baking sheet back in oven at 400F and bake until cheese is melty.

While cheese is melting, smother on the bleu cheese aioli onto one half of the bread. Top with lettuce and tomato. Then add the chicken breast and top with the other half of bread.

I really don’t like the Tyson brand and how they treat animals and their employees, plus farmers too!
