Leftover Roasted Chicken Buffalo Crostini



Something quick and easy to snack on during those great game days. Whether it's baseball, football, racing or hockey this will satisfy anytime. Just some leftover chicken doctored up from yesterdays post (organic balsamic roasted herb chicken recipe see link below).
I use multi grain baguette bread ( something a littler healthy considering the melted cheese is fattening and oh so good) this was great without the dressing or sauce!

Leftover chicken slices (breast preferred)
Franks Hot Sauce to taste
1 baguette loaf of bread cut in thick slices
slices of extra sharp cheddar cheese (real cheese that melts easy)
blue cheese or ranch dressing (use lower fat one's to reduce calories)

Slice baguettes into 1 to 2 inch thick slices. Toast brushed with olive oil and a little garlic powder for around 10 minutes at 400 degree hot oven. Place a slice of leftover chicken on the bread, drizzle with hot sauce over the chicken, add around a teaspoon of dressing of choice then put a large slice of cheese  to cover the entire top of the bread.  Place on a cookie sheet and back into the hot oven at 400 degrees until cheese melts.

Other variations: for a Southwest style crostini:  add some chopped celery on top of the chicken, black sliced olives, black beans, chopped chili peppers,  omit hot sauce and use taco sauce, proceed with cheese over the top adding a dollap of sour cream on top instead of dressing after cheese is melted.
