  • 2 cups cooked shredded chicken
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup mild buffalo sauce see notes
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 tablespoon dry ranch seasoning see notes
  • ranch or blue cheese dressing for serving
  • 8 slices bread for making sandwiches


  • Add the chicken, mayonnaise, buffalo sauce, carrots, celery, and ranch seasoning to a medium bowl and stir well to combine.
  • Spoon chicken salad evenly between the bread to make 4 sandwiches.
  • Drizzle the sandwiches with ranch or blue cheese dressing and extra buffalo sauce, if desired.



To make this spicier, use Frank's Red Hot rather than buffalo sauce. You can also stir in ground cayenne pepper for more spice. 
Be sure to use the ranch seasoning and not the ranch dip or this will be quite salty. Hidden Valley makes both and the ranch seasoning is available in packets or in larger canisters.
