The Buffalo Sandwich: Three Ways

July 15, 2021

Consider Buffalo Sauce our battle cry in the chicken sandwich wars of 2021. If you’re new to the feeding frenzy (pardon the pun) surrounding a few fast food chains and the competition between their signature chicken sammies, we’ll make a long story short: chicken sandwiches are having a major moment, and we want in.

A little bit viral marketing, a little bit Twitter feud, the Chicken Sandwich Wars have been making waves with foodies and fast-food-loving folks since 2019. Every restaurant and burger joint seems to have thrown their hat into the ring, claiming their chicken was the champion.

Here at Primal Kitchen, we love to shoot our shot when it comes to the TikTok trends (have you tried our Paleo No-Dairy Whipped Coffee yet?) or Pinterest Picks (hello, Chaffles!) and we couldn’t resist entering the tasty battle royale with our award-winning Buffalo. So we developed three distinct Primal takes on this trendy drive-thru dish: A Spicy Air Fryer Chicken Sandwich, a Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower Sandwich, and a Grilled Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wrap.

Whether you like your sammy crunchy and crispy, grilled and slathered in sauce, or plant-based, with all the toppings, these three Buffalo beauties can be made right at home in thirty minutes or less. So before you hop in line, make your own victorious Buffalo Sandwich with our vegan Buffalo Sauce made with creamy cashew butter and cayenne pepper. Game on!

Spicy Buffalo Chicken Sandwich

This buffalo chicken sandwich recipe is a Keto-friendly classic. With pork rind-coated chicken tenders, and a creamy mix of Keto Certified Buffalo Sauce and Mayo with Avocado Oil, this keto version of a Nashville hot chicken sandwich is easy to make at home. It’s full of savory, crunchy, sour, and spicy flavors and is an instant crowd-pleaser.

Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower Sandwich

Topped with kicky Buffalo Sauce, tender cauliflower is the ideal base for all the fixings of this crave-worthy sammy. Red cabbage, bell peppers, and pickled onion add just the right amount of crunch to the soft center. Deep fried cauliflower captures the same crispy crunch of a chicken sandwich for a meatless dish any omnivore can appreciate.
