Buffalo chicken and cheese tortellini are cooked in one pot in a cheesy buffalo sauce for a seriously delicious meal made in only 20 minutes!
I’ve been on a real buffalo sauce kick lately! From Buffalo Frito Chili Pie to Buffalo Shrimp Tacos to this scrumptious Buffalo Chicken Cheesy Tortellini, I just can’t get enough of my favorite sauce lately!
Buffalo Chicken Cheesy Penne is the most popular recipe on the blog. Today I decided to give it a little twist by subbing the penne with cheesy tortellini (because more cheese, yes please!)
Needless to say, the combination of cheese, pasta and buffalo sauce is amazing! I left town for less than 24 hours and came back to an empty leftover container. My boyfriend Kurt had literally eaten all of the leftovers! I was a little sad there was none left for me, but happy he loved it so much that he couldn’t stop eating it! 😉
This easy 20 minute one pot recipe will definitely be going into regular rotation at our house!
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 lb chicken breasts (cut into 1 inch pieces)
- 1 cup buffalo sauce (divided)
- 20 oz refrigerated cheese tortellini
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp kosher salt
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 2 oz cream cheese (cubed)
- ½ cup cheddar cheese (shredded)
Add the butter to a large skillet over medium heat.
Toss the cubed chicken with ½ cup buffalo sauce.
Once the butter is melted, add the chicken to the skillet.
Cook 4-5 minutes, then add the tortellini to the skillet with the paprika, garlic powder and salt. Pour the remaining ½ cup buffalo sauce and chicken broth into the skillet and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer 7-8 minutes.
Remove the lid and add the cream cheese and cheddar cheese. Stir to combine, and allow the cheese to melt in for 3-4 minutes.
Top with a few diced green onions if you’d like!
