I am a sandwich lover. I can hardly go one day without a sandwich at lunchtime; I just never want anything else! And there is just way too much you can do with a sandwich–the possibilities seemingly endless. Especially when you have an awesome sandwich grill.
So here is one of my creations! I have a Cuisinart Sandwich Grill (which I got for Christmas one year…shows how much I love sandwiches) and you may not have one at home. Simply put yours on a flat pan over the stove and flip it like a pancake. If you have a panini maker or anything like that; use it for this recipe! The idea is just to have a warm sandwich because who doesn’t want a warm sandwich when it’s frozen solid outside?! And it’s a buffalo chicken “hot pocket”…so it needs to be hot.
This is my lovely sandwich grill I got for Christmas (a year ago, not this past Christmas) and I have made a lot of gems with this thing! It’s only 20 bucks, very manageable, and a purchase that I promise you won’t regret after you see these!
I love mustard, and believe it or not, buffalo sauce and mustard go together. It gives the sandwich extra flavor, and you’ll find out that this sandwich knows no lack in flavor!
Healthy Buffalo Chicken Hot Pockets
- 3 slices deli buffalo chicken
- 1-2 tablespoons of low-fat cheddar cheese (based off preference)
- Half of a full pocket thin (they are naturally serrated in half as semi-circles, so just break one off)
- Buffalo sauce
- Optional (but so worth it!!) A sprinkle of chopped chives!!
Plug in your: Sandwich grill, panini maker, turn on stove and warm pan, whatever appliance you will be using!
First, break the deli buffalo chicken slices in halves or fourths, then lay them in your pocket thin. (it’s gonna be stuffed) You can drizzle your sauce and mustard as you lay the meat down. Then sprinkle your cheese in, making sure it gets in the middle, bottom, in between. Same with the chives.
If you are using the sandwich grill:
I laid my sandwich literally ACROSS this maker. Because the pocket doesn’t fit in like normal bread but this is perfectly fine! Because you end up getting these crazy awesome hot pockets when you just lay it in the middle horizontally!
And then you have it:
This incredible looking sandwich that resembles a quesadilla triangle or a hot pocket 🙂
And this sandwich maker, guys I’m telling you, you have to get! It makes the sandwich so hot and melty on the inside with this crunchy shell on the outside! So good, you’ll never, ever go back to the microwave ones.
Your welcome. Have a great day everyone, stay healthy and happy!!
