Getting Over the 4 Mile Hurdle & Eating Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Good morning, I hope your week is off to a good start! The past few days I have been trying to get motivated to get running again and overall things have been going well, but I can’t seem to break that 4 mile hurdle.  Fall is my absolute favorite time for running.  The air is cool and crisp and it’s so much easier to breathe, so I’m hoping to really get back into my groove… but man, it’s painful starting over.

I think I may need to bite the bullet and sign up for another race in my near future.

But on another (more delicious) note, dinner last night was incredibly easy and super yummy.  We had some leftover chicken in the fridge and on my way home from work I had a serious craving for a buffalo chicken sandwich.  There is nothing I love more than a healthy meal that takes minimal time to make. On Saturday night, Kris concocted this buffalo sauce and I totally stole it from him for this sandwich – so a shout out to him for forever changing buffalo chicken in our household!  Also, I have to admit I did not measure anything… but error on the side of caution with the spicy ingredients!

Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Ingredients:

  • grilled chicken breast (sliced)
  • Yogurt bleu cheese dressing
  • Frank’s red hot sauce
  • Sriracha sauce
  • swiss cheese
  • whole wheat bun

Toppings:

  • baby arugula
  • sliced red onion
  • tomato

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400F

In a mixing bowl, combine leftover chicken, yogurt bleu cheese dressing (I used Wegman’s brand), Frank’s red hot sauce, and sriracha sauce to desired spicy-ness.  Make sure the chicken is evenly coated.

Top your bun with the coated chicken and add a slice of swiss cheese on top.  Put the sandwiches in the oven for 5 minutes (until cheese is melted).

Top with desired toppings. Enjoy!
