I made this buffalo chicken French bread on Saturday evening and we all loved it so much that first thing on Sunday, I made it again! I am not going to make it again this week because we need to eat healthy most of the week and New Year’s Eve is going to be here soon and we probably are not going to eat very healthy on those days. But next week? Who knows?
“Buffalo Chicken French bread is great for any day!”
This buffalo chicken French bread can of course be made with any type of bread you like such as sourdough or baguette, as long as you can hollow out the bread and fill it with this luscious, creamy filling of chicken smothered with cream cheese, hot sauce, and some other fantastic ingredients. This by no means is a healthy, light food if you are planning to have it all yourself. This food is meant to be shared with people you love and care about, and with ones whom you want to taste one of the best foods in their lives. Because how can something go wrong if it’s full of cheese and sauce?
Just one thing for my lovely readers in other parts of the world who don’t have access to ranch dressing: allrecipes.com has a very good and accessible substitute for ranch dressing here. Just make the substitute and mix it with a couple of spoonfulls of mayonnaise and you’re all good!
You will love this buffalo chicken French bread as much as we did – or hopefully more!
