Buffalo, New York, is famous for one thing above all else: chicken wings. But for locals, the quintessential junk food, especially after a night of drinking, is the chicken finger sub. In Buffalo, the sub can be found at dozens of pizza places and sandwich shops, but if you can get your hands on some good chicken fingers, it’s easy to re-create at home.
- Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. In a medium bowl, melt together the Frank's and the butter. Add the chicken fingers and toss to coat.
- Split the sub roll and lay the chicken fingers, topped with the sliced provolone, across the bottom of it. Toast for about 5 minutes, until the roll is warm and just slightly crusty.
- Lay the lettuce, onion, and tomato across the chicken fingers. Add as much blue cheese as your conscience will allow.
