Superbowl Sandwich

Amanda and I will be in Tahiti (!) during the Superbowl. Since the Seahawks didn’t make it, I’m ok with missing it. And, I’ll be Tahiti, so I’d be ok with missing it regardless. You can have your football; I’ll take the sun, beach, and thatched-roof bungalow with private pool. That’s right, private pool. If you can’t be in Tahiti, and are stuck somewhere dreary and cold in front of a big screen, you can at least warm up with a spicy buffalo chicken sandwich.

If chicken wings and a pulled pork sandwich had a baby, it would be this spicy buffalo chicken sandwich. What a lil’ cutie! Shredded buffalo chicken, creamy blue cheese dressing, crispy onion straws, and crunchy, cool coleslaw. This delicious sandwich was born months ago, long before Superbowl was upon us. I also made it long before a similar sandwich was featured in Martha Stewart magazine. So, Martha… you’re welcome.

Enjoy the sandwich and enjoy the Superbowl, I’ll be back in a week with tales of my adventures in French Polynesia!

Spicy Buffalo Chicken Sandwich

Chicken: Make this chicken, but use breast pieces instead of legs, and shred.

Onion Straws:

1/2 cup very thinly sliced onion
1/4 cup flour
Salt & Pepper

Combine ingredients in a bowl, toss to mix, and arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees until brown and crispy (15 to 17 minutes).

Coleslaw: Combine the following:

3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
3 cups thinly sliced green cabbage
Fronds from one bunch of celery-roughly chopped
A little bit of thinly sliced apple and shredded carrot (if you’re into that sorta thing)
Salt and pepper, to taste


On a toasted bun or hoagie, pile on chicken, coleslaw, blue cheese dressing, onion straws, and a sprinkle of chopped up crispy bacon… then devour, cheer for your team, repeat.
