Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 2 tablespoon parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1 cup hot sauce use Franks
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 large carrots shredded
  • 1 cup lettuce shredded
  • 4 ounces blue cheese crumbled
  • 2 green onions sliced
  • 4-6 whole wheat hot dog buns toasted

Spicy Avocado Ranch

Instructions

  • Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  • Make the buffalo sauce. Combine the melted butter, 1/2 cup hot sauce, seasoned salt and pepper in a small bowl. Whisk to combine.
  • Add the ground chicken, parmesan cheese and panko bread crumbs to a bowl. Pour in a 1/4 cup of the buffalo sauce. Mix everything together until just combined, do not over mix. Form the chicken into "dogs" the size of your buns. I was able to make 6 dogs about 5 inches long.
  • Grill for about 6 minutes and then rotate and grill another 6 to 10 or until the chicken dogs are cooked through.
  • While the dogs are cooking make the spicy avocado ranch. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until creamy, scraping down the sides occasionally when needed. Taste and season additionally if desired. The avocado ranch can be stored in a seal-tight container for 1-2 days.
  • To assemble the dogs spread a little avocado crema on the toasted bun and sprinkle with blue cheese. Add the chicken dogs and top with equal amounts of shredded cheddar cheese. Place on a baking sheet and broil for 1 minute to 30 seconds. Top each dog with the avocado ranch, shredded, lettuce shredded carrots, blue cheese and the remaining buffalo sauce. Eat!
