Very good! I used whole wheat rotini, 2 large chicken breasts, and cut down on the wing sauce a little, and used and 8oz block of sharp cheddar cheese. I also left out the celery do to personal taste. The sauce came together very quickly, I'm used to making a roux for my mac and cheese and this was much easier. I baked this for about 20 mins at 350 just to help the pasta soak up the flavor longer. I used Ken's brand buffalo wing sauce and it was very good, not too spicy.

Yum yum yum! I too used Ken's Wing Sauce. Truthfully, IDK what other wing sauces are out there besides Ken's, so it's hard to say if brand matters. I hate celery, so I used chopped bell peppers to give it that crunch. If you don't have cooked chicken breast, you could prob use canned chicken in a pinch. Works for dip, why not this? Next time I would prob serve with blue cheese on top.

Yum! The whole family enjoyed this and it couldn't be easier. Quick to make on the stovetop. I used Frank's buffalo wing sauce and it was perfect, a little spicy but still enjoyed by the kids. Also used a 17.6 oz package of gemelli (longish pasta twirls) and about 3 cups of chopped smoked chicken from my freezer. Will make again! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Loved this! I added a half cup of shredded pepperjack, used Franks hot sauce instead of wing sauce, also added about a half cup of blue cheese dressing. Baked in the oven for about 20 mins. Would definately make again.

I decided to try this recipe one day on a whim and it turned out to be such a hit. It's so quick to make, you can mix all of the ingredients during the time the pasta is boiling! Before you know it, your meal is ready. I also tried baking it for a bit to really melt the cheese. I highly recommend the recipe.

OMG so good and so easy! I used just a little bit more of the cheese and also used Ken's sauce. Delicious. I literally just finished cooking this, and I think I am going to throw it oven like Zanni did while I wait for my boyfriend to come home! Sooo good lol

Pretty amazing how this comes together so easily and taste so dang good! I followed the lead of many chefs and baked it after tossing it all together. I added a bit more milk once I had it in the baking dish. Covered with foil & baked at 350°, for 20 minutes. Served with Blue cheese crumbles as a topping and omitted the celery. I like it but some of the family does not, so I decided to be accommodating tonight. Thanks for posting this tasty dinner treat!

TOTAL LOVE! Didn't find it too spicy - didn't find it too difficult for a work night - husband ate 2 servings!!! (Should have made that salad to go with!)

Did halve the recipe for the 2 of us - it is 4 very generous servings.

Did NOT have wing sauce on hand - made Mild Buffalo Wing Sauce and used as called for here.

Will make again - anytime I know we have left over chicken available!

THANKS!

I just made this for dinner and hubby and I LOVED it. It is definitely a keeper! Since I didn't have some of the specific ingredients, I did have to make some adjustments. Btw, I made half of the recipe because it makes ALOT.
1. Used mexican blend shredded cheese as it was all I had (and used what was left which was a bit less than 2 cups anyway
2. I don't have Ken's wing sauce or buffalo sauce so I used 2 oz of Mild Buffalo Wild Wing Sauce and 2 oz of Medium of Buffalo Wild Wing Sauce to make the 4oz.
3.) I added about 2 TBSP of ranch dressing
4.) I used whole wheat shells pasta; great for disguising the fiber! :)

Overall I enjoyed it! Thanks for an awesome recipe!
