2/3 cup (4 ounces) Wisconsin Blue cheese, crumbled
2 cups iceberg
Sweet pepper bruschetta topping, optional
Hot sport peppers,
Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper and place in zip-style resealable
bag. Pour buttermilk into bag and seal. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight.
Place flour on plate and season with salt and pepper. Pour wing sauce into bowl.
Heat large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add vegetable oil to about 1-inch depth
and heat to 350ºF. Remove chicken breasts from bag and roll in flour to coat. Fry
in hot oil, 4-5 minutes per side, until golden and cooked through.
Remove chicken breasts from skillet with tongs and turn them in the bowl of hot
sauce to coat evenly. Reserve on plate.
Heat large skillet over medium heat. Butter one side of each bread slice. Place
4 slices, butter-side down, in skillet and top each with 1 slice Monterey Jack,
1 chicken breast, 1 ounce Blue cheese crumbles, and 1/2 cup of shredded lettuce.
Layer the sweet pepper bruschetta topping on the lettuce, if using. Top each sandwich
with another piece of the bread, butter-side up, and grill, turning once, until
bread is golden and cheese melts.
Garnish with sport peppers, if desired.
