Buffalo Chicken Mac-N-Cheese

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Cluich

Buffalo chicken meets mac-n-cheese. How can you possibly go wrong? I threw this together for the end-of-the-year potluck lunch at the high school where I teach, and it went over really well. Addendum: Like the first two reviewers, I also used Ken's. Worked great! However, I have to disagree with one reviewer about the celery. I've made this with and without the celery, and its inclusion really makes a world of difference in terms of texture.

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the macaroni in a pot of boiling salted water.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, whisk the milk and flour together in a bowl, then pour into a saucepan, bringing it to a boil, stirring constantly.
  3. Reduce heat to medium and stir in chicken, cheese, onion powder, garlic powder, buffalo sauce and hot sauce (if you're using it). Cook until the cheese melts.
  4. When the pasta is done, drain it and stir in the cheese mixture and the celery.
