With friends like these, who needs to travel to Buffalo? Though I still plan to make it up there someday for the famous beef on weck sandwich, until then I'll be happy to eat my buddy Jonas's buffalo chicken sandwiches.
I should mention that Jonas — like any worthy Buffalonian — makes excellent Buffalo chicken wings. But when I heard he was now slathering his special hot wing sauce on chicken sandwiches, I
invited myself over for dinner requested a dinner invitation.
I don't really want to know all the details of how Jonas makes the chicken, but I know it involves Country Crock, Frank's Red Hot, and frying. For these sammies, he slathered a soft French roll with blue cheese dressing, topped the chicken with crumbled blue cheese, and threw on a few tomato slices for added flavor.
As I told our gracious host, I had been looking forward to these sandwiches for like a week, and they were even better than my dreams.
