Yes…. More cheese…. I cant help it. All of my favorite recipes have cheese in them. Inspiration for this sandwich came from Pinterest, and thought that looks super delicious and awesome and easy. Plus my dad and brother LOVE chicken wings, so I thought this would be a nice substitute. This is a great meal for a weekend lunch, or weeknight dinner when you have so many things going on. You make the filling ahead of time, and keep in the fridge so you can make a sandwich anytime you like. These sandwiches have become a go to for busy nights when my husband has class or I just don’t feel like cooking too much.
For these grilled cheese sandwiches you need chicken, celery, hot sauce, cheese slices, a little bit of mayonnaise, bread, and some butter. To begin making the filling, dice some cooked chicken and celery and place in medium bowl. Add hot sauce and a little bit of mayonnaise to chicken and celery, then stir to combine. Butter one side of bread slices, place into skillet butter side down. Add some of the chicken filling to bread and the add a slice of cheese, then top with another bread slice with the butter on the outside, after several minutes (or until golden brown) flip sandwich and cook on other side. Once the second side is golden brown, remove from pan and serve right away.
