Now that football season is in full swing, I’m all about the “game day grub”! When it comes down to my favorite recipes to make while watching football, I’m a big fan of anything you can put in the crock pot, and anything you can add buffalo sauce to!
Shredded chicken is added to a spicy, cheesy buffalo sauce and tossed with penne pasta in this creamy, delicious Buffalo Chicken Cheesy Penne Recipe, made in only 30 minutes!
This is the first recipe I’ve posted while simultaneously eating the dish!
Ok, so maybe it’s the leftovers from yesterdays lunch, but it’s just as good the second time around!!
For six months now I have been obsessed with all things buffalo chicken thanks to my friend Lindsay who first introduced me to Buffalo Chicken Dip! I now think of all the ways I can incorporate buffalo chicken into new recipes. From burgers to tacos to this new yummy dish, I’ve found some interesting ways to spread out my obsession over several genres of food!
Today I will be sharing with you my newest creation, Buffalo Chicken Cheesy Penne.
- 2 cups shredded chicken breasts (boil or pressure cook 1 lb of chicken and shred)
- 8 oz cream cheese
- 1/3 cup buffalo sauce
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 3/4 cup blue cheese dressing
- 12 oz uncooked penne pasta
- Green Onions (chopped)
- Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
Oh yeah, that is one pretty bowl of spicy chicken pasta that this girl can dig!
♣ Vegetarian Option: Omit the chicken. The spicy, cheesy buffalo sauce is so good on its own, you could definitely do it without chicken! Also, use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.
♦ Gluten Free Option: Use gluten-free pasta. Make sure the blue cheese dressing is gluten-free. Ken’s Blue Cheese Dressing is what I used in this recipe & it is gluten-free!
