As I’ve mentioned a time or two in the past, macaroni and cheese is definitely up there on my list of favorite foods.  In my mind, it’s pretty much the perfect comfort food.  I definitely love traditional macoroni and cheese but when I found this buffalo chicken mac & cheese I couldn’t resist! I made it on Friday and loved it!

BUFFALO CHICKEN MAC & CHEESE 1 lb. pasta 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked & cubed 1 tbsp. flour 4-6 tbsp. butter 1 1/2 cups milk 4 oz. grated monterrey jack cheese {half a brick. plus more for topping} 1/3 cup sharply shredded cheddar cheese 1/3 cup buffalo wing sauce {Frank’s Red Hot is my favorite!!!} 1/3 cup Panko bread crumbs Ranch dressing, to taste

Here’s what you’ll need to get started… Cook pasta according to package directions, drain, and return to pot. While the pasta is cooking, heat saucepan over medium heat and add the butter. Add the flour once the butter is melted and bubbly. Add in the wing sauce, I used a lot more than what this recipe called for. Lightly grease a 9×13 baking dish and add the pasta & cubed chicken. Mix well so that the chicken is evenly distributed throughout the pasta. Pour cheese sauce on top. Now sprinkle with bread crumbs and extra cheese. Cook on 350 for 25 minutes 🙂
