Dave and I worked for 6 hours this past Wednesday night inventing recipes with three different Saucy Mama marinades. I’ll be sharing those with you throughout this week! One of the Saucy Mama flavors is Hot Wing Sauce. Dave and Brant LOVE hot wings, so this was the flavor they were most eager to experiment with. One brainstorm led to another, and these delicious creations were born.
hot wing melts
(serves 12 as an appetizer)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
6 medium chicken breasts
1 cup Saucy Mama’s Hot Wing Sauce
16 slices White Bread
4 tbsp salted butter
12 oz blue cheese crumbles
Place half the oil in a pan heated to medium high and fry three of the chicken breasts until cooked through, flipping as needed. Repeat with the remaining oil and the remaining three chicken breasts.
Pat the chicken dry and cut each breast into ¼-inch slices. Toss the chicken slices in Saucy Mama’s Hot Wing Sauce and set aside. Butter one side of each slice of bread. Preheat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Lay the buttered side of a slice on the skillet and top with chicken slices and blue cheese. On top of the cheese, immediately place another bread slice with the butter side up. Cover the skillet. When the bread is golden brown and cheese is melted, flip the sandwich and continue to cook, covered, until the second side is also golden brown and cheese is melted. Let the sandwiches cool for 1 minute and then cut into quarters and serve hot.
