Kelly's Story

The first time I ever had “buffalo wings”, I just about flipped!! What an awesome idea that lady from Buffalo, New York had!!! Ever since then, I’ve used the same concept making dips, pizzas, salads, and my latest concoction…HOAGIES! They are REALLY good!! Enjoy! :D

2 Tbsp
minced garlic

We just had these tonight for dinner and they were a hit. I used a few variations just because of what we had in the house but nothing major. My only gripe with this recipe is the ingredient entry for the chicken (common sense beats this but still...) and the step-by-step. It's simple enough to follow but it did get a bit hard to pick up where I left off. Still, definitely blue ribbon worthy.

My wife went nuts over this sandwich. I give it a blue ribbon and a trophy.
