As I was out for my walk tonight I was trying to think of something to eat when I got home. I remembered I bought some of the new Kings Hawaiian rolls with the jalapenos in them and thought I could make a pretty good sandwich with them. As I was sitting on the patio with my doggies eating my new creation, which was pretty darn awesome, I thought I better make one more sandwich and post this on my blog because it was pretty amazing!
I’m kind of a sandwich guru, it runs in my blood. My dad can come up with some pretty awesome sandwich creations too. Sometime I will have to do a post on the “Chick Sandwich” it is a true work of art. Scott and Alexa could eat them pretty much every day I think.
These Kings Hawaiian jalapeno rolls would be great with some ham salad on them also. Well, I hope you try this one, I used Hellman’s mayo, swiss cheese, buffalo chicken lunch meat and a jalapeno stuffed olive on top. I think an olive stuck on top of a sandwich makes it look pretty fancy, and I had some in my fridge. Scott likes to put jalapeno and garlic stuffed olives in his beer with some of the juice, but he doesn’t eat the olives after he drinks the beer! Drives me nuts! Usually the juice runs out and then I have a number of jars of jalapeno and garlic stuffed olives in my fridge with no juice, so I have to get creative to use them up. Enjoy! I’m headed back to my patio with my box wine/strawberry lemonade cocktail!

Quality Ingredients: The quality of your ingredients can make or break this dish. Always opt for fresh chicken and high-quality buffalo sauce for the best flavor.
Don’t Overcook the Chicken: Chicken can become dry if overcooked. Keep a close eye on it; as soon as it’s no longer pink in the middle, it’s done.
