Weeknight Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches with Pickle Slaw.
These easy weeknight buffalo chicken sandwiches are dinner gold. Saucy chicken served on a soft and buttery brioche bun, piled high with crisp and refreshing pickle slaw. DELISH.
Dinner winner here!
These buffalo chicken sandwiches are super juicy and delicious, easy enough to make for a weeknight meal and are especially wonderful topped with a crisp and crunchy dill pickle slaw.
Oh my gosh.
It’s my kind of sandwich.
And it’s SO EASY. I use the same method as I do for my weeknight BBQ chicken.
Ridiculously simple, so tasty, a huge favorite for everyone.
And perfect for the super bowl!
P.S. if you’re looking for more buffalo chicken recipes, I also love these slaw sandwiches with gorgonzola slaw. Same vibe, different flavors, still for a crowd.
But… this is my favorite way to make pulled chicken sandwiches for dinner during the week!
Let me tell you why they are so good:
I use chicken thighs, for the optimal flavor and juiciness. I find that thighs also make this chicken taste like it has been cooked low and slow.
It takes just a few minutes! I broil the chicken for 15 minutes or less. Then I shred it in a stand mixer, adding in more sauce and spices.
It’s a great meal to make ahead of time, so you can easily meal prep this dish. It also makes for incredible leftovers and the chicken can be repurposed in tacos, on pizza or even in a salad.
Let’s talk about this slaw. Oh heck yes, pickle lovers unite!
I could eat pickles with every meal. I used to only love dill pickles, but now my heart extends to sweeter pickles as well. I’m telling you this because I think you can use both in this recipe. Dill or sweet work well, interchangeably.
The combination of buffalo chicken + pickles is divine! The slaw adds a crunchy, crisp element to the sandwich and I find that it takes it over the top. The chicken is tender and juicy. The slaw is refreshing and tangy and adds a fabulous texture.
To make the slaw, I combine thinly sliced green cabbage, lots of dill pickles, some shallots, a delicious honey vinegar dressing and a few spoonfuls of sweet relish too. Makes all the difference! (more…)
