For instance, there's a simple way to transform Chick-fil-A's spicy chicken sandwich into a buffalo chicken sandwich.

Don't forget to ask for extra pickles and a few packets of zesty buffalo sauce

If you have a hankering for a buffalo chicken sandwich and there's a Chick-fil-A just down the street, you're in luck. Even though Chick-fil-A doesn't feature a buffalo chicken sandwich on its menu, it's very easy to DIY with free ingredients from this chicken chain, as noted by The Krazy Coupon Lady. First, you will want to order a spicy chicken sandwich as your base. This sandwich has a multigrain bun, dill pickle chips, and pepper-seasoned boneless chicken breast.

Next, you will want to make sure that you ask for extra pickles and a couple of packets of buffalo sauce. Simply drizzle your buffalo sauce on the bun and place the extra pickles on top, and voila! You've got yourself a buffalo chicken sandwich.

Feel free to customize this sandwich to suit your preferences. For instance, if you're not a big pickle fan, hold the extra pickles. If you don't handle spice too well, order the Original Chicken sandwich as your base, not the spicy chicken sandwich. If you're ordering your sandwich to-go, you can also top your handheld dish with ingredients and condiments from your home.
