It’s funny, but some of our favorite recipes are truly born out of necessity. This is definitely one of them. We were heading home from playing ball with some friends at the park. We had been out for hours, it was dark, everyone was starving.
We of course invited everyone back to our house and I had to figure something out for dinner. It had to be satisfying, it had to be good and it had to be fast. I started brainstorming and all I could think of was game day food.

Chad insisted that this be our new game day meal! We have enjoyed them several times already and I have to say whether you are getting together to watch the games during March Madness or bringing food to a friends house these quick and easy shredded buffalo chicken sandwiches are absolutely what you need. If you are looking for a mouthwatering, juicy pork tenderloin sandwich instead, we have you covered!
These sandwiches are like your favorite buffalo wings transformed into a glorious creation. This tangy buffalo chicken sandwich is mildly spicy, with a touch of sweetness that really pulls the sandwich together. It is served on restaurant quality buns and are sure to satisfy even the biggest appetite!
This sandwich recipe just might make you forget about buffalo wings forever.
- We have made this with left over shredded chicken. Rotisserie chicken shredded would be perfect and canned would also work.
With love, from our simple kitchen to yours.

This looks like a slam dunk as a game day sandwich for the tournament! Love the buffalo flavor profile.
amazing flavors, way better than crockpot buffalo chicken which can lose the iconic buffalo flavor and sauce thickness. I recommend slicing up a fresh jalapeno for an added kick!
Saved as a favorite, I like your web site!
I total winner for easy gameday grab and go food! Everyone loved them, next time I will have to make more.
This was so simple but so good. Definitely going to use these when we have company over.
