Maple Sriracha glazed chicken and blue cheese sandwich

The IIHF World Juniors are currently happening in Finland. I was in a Game Day thread during the Canada Denmark game and someone joked “it’s maple syrup vs… what does Denmark have? Blue cheese!” Right away I thought “that would actually make a delicious combo!!” And so I got to work crafting this sandwich.
