    Ready In

  • 2 cups cooked chicken, cut into 1-in. chucks or large shreds
  • 1/4 cup cayenne pepper sauce
  • 1/4 cup small diced celery
  • 2 Tbsp. PLUS 8 tsp. Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise, divided
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped green onions
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
  • 8 1/4-in. thick slices Tuscan bread
  • Carrot and celery sticks for serving

  1. Toss chicken with pepper sauce in medium bowl. Stir in celery, 2 Tbsp. of Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise and green onions until well blended.

  2. Place four bread slices on a cutting board. Evenly top each bread slice with the buffalo chicken mixture. Then evenly sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese; top with remaining four bread slices.

  3. Spread 1 tsp. Mayonnaise on the outside of each of the top bread slices, repeat with the outside of the bottom bread slices.

  4. Working in batches, place in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat or in a panini press and cook the sandwiches until the bread is golden browned on both sides and the cheddar cheese is melted.

  5. Serve immediately, if desired, with Blue Cheese Dipping Sauce (see Tip) and additional celery and carrot sticks.
