Directions
1. Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat. Add Frank’s Redhot Sauce, apple cider vinegar, pressed garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and ground cayenne.
2. Whisk to combine and bring just to a simmer. Remove from the heat and let cool.
3. Once cooled add half the mixture to a bowl and add the chicken. Stir to coat, cover, and place in the refrigerator for 2 hours; stirring every 30-45 minutes.
4. Preheat the grill to 400 degrees. Remove the chicken from the marinade and grill for 10-12 minutes or until the chicken reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit; flipping halfway through the process. Baste with the remaining buffalo sauce to keep it moist and tasty. Cover and let rest for 10-15 minutes. Cut the chicken into bite size pieces.
5. Whisk the ingredients together for the creamy ranch dressing.
6. Layer the romaine on a large platter or in a bowl. Follow up with the celery, carrots, grape tomatoes, red bell pepper red onion, bleu cheese, and buffalo chicken. Brush cut avocado with lime juice and add to salad. Drizzle with the homemade ranch dressing or your favorite bleu cheese dressing.
