Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Sandwich

20 Minutes | easy | Serves 2

This is obviously based on the famous buffalo sauce from New York which is usually used to coat deep fried wings. Grilling the chicken keeps it lighter and of course, adds a smoky flavour.


  • 2 good sized chicken thighs, skinless and boneless
  • 60ml hot sauce (we used Frank’s Original)
  • 50g butter
  • ½ teaspoon caster sugar
  • A handful shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 2 cheese slices
  • A few thin slices red onion
  • 2 buns (we used brioche), lightly toasted



Buffalo sauce

Make the buffalo sauce by melting the butter in a small saucepan with the sugar and hot sauce until combined. Set aside.

Chicken thighs

If the chicken thighs vary a lot in thickness, it’s useful to bash them with something heavy to even out the width and ensure they cook evenly on the grill. Place the thighs in a dish and pour over half the sauce. Rub all over the chicken to make sure it is well coated.


Light the Jupiter Outback

Light the Jupiter Outback Barbecue and set two of the gas burners to medium-high. Once the grill is hot, cook the chicken thighs for around 5-8 minutes per side (chicken thighs vary greatly in size so make sure the chicken is cooked through before serving).

Make the sandwiches

To make the sandwiches, place some lettuce and red onion onto each bun and top with a cheese slice. Dip the chicken into the remaining buffalo sauce and add to the sandwiches before drizzling with the remaining sauce and topping with the bun lids.
