Skinny Buffalo Chicken Melts

Everyone who follows my blog knows how much I love Buffalo Sauce. I also love love love a good grilled cheese sandwich. These Skinny Buffalo Chicken Melts combine my two loves but are on the lighter side. You wouldn't know it by tasting them though! Melty cheese with chicken tossed in a spicy buffalo sauce and then toasted to perfection. Yummy!

Skinny Buffalo Chicken Melts
Makes 4 Sandwiches
Cal 315, Carbs 30.5, Fat 9g, Fiber 2g, Protein 31.7g

2 cups cooked chopped chicken breast
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. dry ranch seasoning
1/8 cup light ranch dressing
1/2 cup Buffalo Sauce (I use Franks)
6 slices cheese of your choice (I used reduced fat sliced provolone)
1 large tomato, sliced 
Sliced Bakery Bread (I used sourdough)

In a small bowl mix together your chicken, dry seasonings, buffalo sauce, and ranch dressing. Set aside.

Heat a large non stick pan over medium high heat. Meanwhile lightly butter your both slices of bread (I used smart balance spread) and place one piece butter side down. Place chicken mixture on bread and top with sliced tomato and then 1 1/2 slices of cheese. Cook as you would a grilled cheese sandwich- a couple minutes or so, until brown on one side, then flip and brown the other side.

Serve with additional ranch dressing on the side for dipping, if desired. Enjoy!
