I threw in one large diced carrot with the rest of the ingredients (to add to what would be on the platter for a buffalo wings AND to make it stretch just a little further for more "filled out" sandwiches) and I used my own homemade lowfat ranch dressing. GREAT balance of ingredients. The boys made quick work of this sandwich stuffer--they LOVED it. My husband asked me why I hadn't made it before and please could I make it more often........and why aren't there leftovers? ;)

ok this recipe is good but what bothers me is the name I am from Buffalo and we would NEVER use ranch its blue cheese dressing all the way here with this types of recipe or anything chicken wing related yeah we actually just say chicken wing in Buffalo and not Buffalo wings like everywhere else which seems silly to us so I don't like my city name associated with something thats not even made the way we would make it but I agree about the franks hot sauce thats the best and what most people in Buffalo use.So if you're gonna make a true "Buffalo chicken salad" use bleu cheese

My husband and I LOVE chicken wings so I knew this had our names written all over it! Plus it was quick and easy to put together for lunch - not to mention a bit healthier than fried chicken wings! I used Kraft Reduced fat light dressing and of course Frank's Red Hot which is a staple in our house. I cut back on the celery a bit but it did give the chicken salad a nice crunch. I let it chill for about an hour before serving to let the flavors blend together. I made these into wrap sandwiches - perfect with crisp lettuce, fresh tomatoes and of course some crumbled bleu cheese! Thanks for a great recipe Nikki!

Very good for a quick and easy meal when you don't have time to cook a huge dinner. The only thing I changed was I used 1/2 cup of Frank's Buffalo Hot. I love mine spicy!

Standard buffalo-ranch flavor, but using both bottled ranch and hot sauce made this sliiiiide out of the kaiser buns as I tried to assemble sandwiches for lunch. Perhaps dry ranch seasoning mixed with a thicker mayo/sour cream/plain yogurt would better suit this yummy option for the ever-present- leftover-chicken situation.

Very tasty! I did add about 1/2 cup of cream cheese just to thicken it up a bit and that really helped. I also threw some buffalo sauce in with the chicken while it was cooking to give it a little extra kick.

We loved this I did make one change, instead of using the onions (which daughter won't eat) I added Feta Cheese. About 1/4-1/2 cup. Delish!!

Excellent flavor, but WAY too much ranch! A 50-50 ratio of ranch to hot sauce works better otherwise all you taste is ranch.
