Cayenne Ranch Dressing has always been a family favorite at Slim Chickens. It is one of the dipping sauce you can choose when eating your hot succulent fried chicken fingers. I enjoy trying to copy recipes at home that my family enjoys eating out which is how I came up with my version of Cayenne Ranch Dressing. I use this dressing to make this excellent Cayenne Ranch Chicken Grilled Cheese.
Cayenne Ranch Chicken Grilled Cheese Ingredients include bacon, Pepper Jack cheese, Cayenne Ranch, and a cooked chicken breast I butterflied.
How did I prepare this Cayenne Ranch Chicken Grilled Cheese?
For this sandwich to be called a grilled cheese, I wanted it to have lots of stringy cheese. The more cheese, the better in this recipe which is why I added the additional slice of cheese. I used Oven Bacon and added a couple of slices before grilling the sandwich.
What is the secret to a golden brown grilled cheese sandwich?
I learned this trick years ago watching Chef Wolfgang Puck. He was making hot sandwiches and said he always used mayonnaise because butter burns. Mayonnaise on the outside of the bread gets the sandwich crispy and golden. So, I use mayonnaise on all my hot sandwiches no matter if I am grilling them or baking them in the oven. Every time I use mayonnaise on the outside of my sandwich, the sandwich turns out perfectly crispy and golden.
