Ingredients
  1. 4 boneless chicken breasts
  2. Salt, so taste
  3. Ground black pepper, to taste
  4. 1 cup buttermilk
  5. 1 cup flour
  6. 1 cup spicy “buffalo wing” sauce
  7. Vegetable oil, for frying
  8. 6 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  9. 8 slices sourdough bread
  10. 4 slices Wisconsin Monterey Jack cheese
  11. ⅔ cup (4 ounces) Wisconsin blue cheese, crumbled
  12. 2 cups iceberg lettuce, shredded
  13. Sweet pepper bruschetta topping, optional
  14. Hot sport peppers, optional
Instructions
  1. 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.
  2. Place flour on a 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 350°F. Remove chicken breasts from the bag and roll in flour to coat. Fry in hot oil, 4 to 5 minutes per side, until golden and cooked through.
  3. Remove the chicken breasts from the skillet with tongs and turn them in the bowl of hot sauce to coat evenly. Reserve on plate.
  4. Heat a 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 ½ 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.

Wisconsin Cheese

As the nation’s top cheese producer, Wisconsin is home to classic, specialty and artisan cheesemaking. The state’s 1,200 cheesemakers, many of whom are third- and fourth-generation, continue to pass on old-world traditions while adopting modern methods in cheesemaking craftsmanship. It’s no wonder Wisconsin Cheese wins more awards than any U.S. state or nation in the world. Welcome to America’s Dairyland.
