Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Louisiana-style hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon taco seasoning
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (5 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced chives
  • 3/4 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 onion rolls, split and toasted
  • 2 cooked Jones Dairy Farm Dry-Aged Bacon strips
  • 2 slices Colby cheese (3/4 ounce each)

Directions

In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring the first five ingredients to a boil; boil, uncovered, for 1 minute. Cool for 10 minutes; set aside 1/4 cup for basting.
Flatten chicken to 1/2-in. thickness. Pour remaining marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

"The marinade is awesome. The chicken is very flavorful. I skip the homemade dressing and opt for store bought blue cheese or ranch dressing to save time."
