Buffalo Chicken with Blue Cheese Toasts

This recipe is a great way to get that buffalo wing flavor without the fat and mess of deep frying.  It's also way neater to eat!  It all comes together quickly for an easy weeknight meal.

Buffalo Chicken with Blue Cheese Toast

1lb thin sliced chicken breasts
1/4 c flour
salt and pepper
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 c chicken broth
1/3 c hot sauce, I used siracha
4 tbsp butter, softened
1/2 c blue cheese
8 slices baguette

1.  Season chicken with salt and pepper and dredge in flour.  Heat oil in a large skillet, cook chicken until brown on each side.
2.  Add broth and hot sauce and cook until chicken is cooked through and sauce has reduced.  Whisk in 2 tbsp butter.
3.  For toasts: combine 2 tbsp butter and blue cheese in a small bowl.  Spread mixture on baguette slices.  Broil until bubbly and slightly browned.  Serve alongside chicken.

I also made a simple green bean and almond side dish to get some nutrients in my belly.

Love, love, loooooved this recipe.  The blue cheese toasts are a must have!
