Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Sharonne hit it out of the ballpark with this delicious grilled cheese! It has just enough heat from the wing sauce and juiciness from the chicken. Of course, it wouldn't be a grilled cheese with out the gooeyness from the cheese. The buttered Italian bread gives it a nice crunch too. More please!


1/2 lb
grilled chicken, cubed
2 slice
provolone-mozzarella cheese
1/2 c
Frank's red hot wing sauce
2 slice
Oroweat Italian bread
1 medium
onion, diced
1-2 dash(es)
garlic pepper
1-2 dash(es)
garlic powder
butter, room temperature


1For the perfect grilled cheese sandwich, make sure your butter and cheese are at room temperature. The butter spreads easier on the bread and the cheese melts just heavenly!

2Heat a skillet on medium and add grilled chicken cubes and diced onions. Season to taste with the garlic pepper and powder. I use pre-cooked grilled chicken breast cubes from Tyson or John Boule.
