  • 1/2 cup shredded, cooked chicken
  • 1 - 2 tbsp sour cream (starting with one)
  • 1 1/2 - 2 tbsp FRANK'S REDHOT® Buffalo Wings sauce, or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • 2 slices bread (I use multigrain)
  • 2 slices pepper jack cheese or your preferred cheese


  • In a bowl, stir together chicken, sour cream, wing sauce, garlic powder, and basil until all ingredients are combined.
  • On one slice of bread, layer one slice of pepper jack cheese, the buffalo chicken mixture, the other slice of pepper jack, and top with the last slice of bread.
  • Place sandwich in a greased pan (I like to use butter) on stove top over medium-low heat. Flip when each side reaches your desired doneness.


Start with mixing in 1 tbsp of sour cream. If you prefer a more creamy buffalo chicken mixture, add an additional tbsp, or to taste.
