I guess this might technically be an appetizer, but over here, this Cheesy Buffalo Chicken French Bread was served as dinner, and not gonna lie, it was by far one of my family’s favorites that I’ve made in the last few months. Seems so, like simple, but my family loves, loves, loves anything with buffalo sauce. Way back in the day…ok, like three or four years ago, I was making buffalo chicken for the family at least once a week. It was a go-to meal because literally everyone in the house would eat it (well Asher was little, she hasn’t come to appreciate buffalo sauce quite yet). Mom, dad, brothers… they all just love buffalo sauce. They even dig the blue cheese I like to add.
I mean, how could french bread stuffed with buffalo chicken and cheddar cheese not be beyond delicious?!
So glad I did because like I said, this is delicious! Nothing not to love.
… top with bread crumbs, cilantro, jalapeno + green onions (if you want!).
For real though, does that not sound like dream football food??? Pretty perfect for today, right? And guys, even if you’re not into football at all, this is still the most perfect dinner for tonight. It’s fast and simple and loved by pretty much everyone.
Take your french bread and place it on a rimmed baking sheet. Remove the top 1/3 of the bread and then pull out some of the insides to create a space for the chicken filling. Just be careful not to remove all of the bread, you want a thick layer of bread for your boat. Rub the inside of your french bread with olive oil and sprinkle with salt + pepper. Now grab the scraps of bread and tear them into pieces. Toss with 2 tablespoons olive oil, the garlic, parmesan, salt and pepper. Place both the french bread and the bread scraps in the oven. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the breadcrumbs are toasted. Remove everything from the oven.
Hip, hip for the start of fall football, and more importantly…fall football eats + drinks. YES!
