Buffalo Chicken Loaf

Every time I get invited to a BBQ or some potluck event everyone expects me to take something different.  Its nice to know there are people out there that likes my food *smiling*.  
The day before I had picked up a rotisserie chicken for dinner & I had leftovers.  I had a loaf of french bread in my breadbox (always have some type of bread in this kitchen) & I was praying that I still had hot sauce in my fridge. I DID! 
So, my wheels started turning & I came up with bbq chicken on a french roll. 

This is the before pic

And this is when its cooked...

I cut them in smaller pieces & everyone really enjoyed them! (Of course!) *smile*


About two cups of cooked chicken, cut in bite size pieces.
1/4  cup franks red hot sauce (love this stuff!)

Add hot sauce to chicken & let sit for about an hour

1/4 cup franks red hot sauce
2TBL butter
1 celery stick, chopped finely
Mozzerella cheese (above I used a mix of cheeses I had leftover)
Bleu cheese dressing 
Blue cheese crumbles (optional)
Cilantro, chopped
French bread, sliced in half

Heat the hot sauce with butter & let cool.
To assemble french loaf pizza; brush your cooled sauce on bread, sprinkle cheese over sauce, sprinkle celery, add marinated chicken, then drizzle blue cheese dressing over the entire loaf (add as much dressing to desired taste which brings in the blue cheese crumbles if desired, i personally dont add too much of either to balance both dressing & crumbles), drizzle a bit more hot sauce over loaf, top with a sprinkle of cheese & cilantro.
Heat under broiler for 3-4 minutes
Slice into smaller pieces & serve.
