The Ingredients

Here’s what you need to make a delicious Hot Honey Chicken Sandwich. 

The Griddle Setup

  • Flat Top Grill. I toasted the buns on the Traeger Flatrock Flat Top Grill. I love using this setup for quesadillas, tacos, and more! Pro Tip: Be sure to “season” your grill before using it! This step creates a slick, nonstick surface.

Cooking with a flat top is easy, especially when you know how to clean it! Check out the video to see my process for cleaning your Traeger Flatrock Flat Top Grill without much elbow grease. 
If you’re looking for an excellent flat top grill, try this one! Its divided heat chambers allow you to cook multiple things at once. It’s a beautiful addition to any outdoor kitchen! 

The Process for Making a Hot Honey Chicken Sandwich

You’ll find a detailed demonstration of this recipe within the video and recipe card. Here’s a brief overview of how I made a fried chicken sandwich. 

The Results

My Hot Honey Chicken Sandwiches were perfectly juicy from marinating in buttermilk. They had a crispy crust accented with my hot honey sauce. The sandwich was spicy but not overpowering, thanks to my homemade coleslaw! 

Storing Your Leftover Fried Chicken Sandwich

Leftover chicken patties can be stored in the fridge for up to four days or frozen for up to four months. For the best texture, I recommend making the coleslaw fresh and assembling the sandwiches just before serving.
