      This is an artery clogging, kitchen-dirtying, totally indulgent, sinful meal. I can't eat like that every day, or actually any day! I used 2% cheese, subbed milk for 1/2 and 1/2, and used light sour cream. For what it's worth, my sauce was still creamy and delicious and saved a bunch of calories! I also skipped the pepper jack and used gruyere and swiss instead, because I wanted a stronger cheese taste. However, I thought (and DH agreed) that the hot sauce flavor totally overpowered the taste of the cheese, so frankly I felt like I wasted my cheese! The blue cheese on top was like the icing on the cake- I loved the crunch of the panko and the bite of the blue cheese. A very good combo of two delicious meals!

      Oh, my, this was soooo good. If you like buffalo anything, you will love this. I did try to stay true to the recipe, but I made some minor modifications based on the other reviews. First, I cut back the hot sauce added to the chicken mixture to 1/3 cup. For the cheese, I used .5lb of Velveeta, 1/2 8oz bag (4 oz?) of grated sharp cheddar, and 1 full 8oz bag of Monterey Jack. This still had quite a bite, too hot for children and grandmas, but I thought it was perfect, but you might want to cut back even further on the hot sauce if you don't like it too spicy. Also, I love the buffalo/bleu cheese combo, so I was thinking that when I make it again, I would try bleu cheese dressing instead of the sour cream in the cheese sauce - but, the topping added more of a bleu cheese kick than I thought it would, so maybe not. I was so happy to have an event to make this - a friend was having a macaroni and cheese party - all different kinds. I don't think I could just make it for the family due to the calories, fat, and the fact it's too hot for my DH and mom :-) But, I will make it again next pot luck!

      I found this recipe on another website and had to try it because it has 2 of my kids favorite foods. The only changes I made was 2 cups of 2% milk and 1/2 cup heavy cream. I also did not add the blue cheese but used Ranch. Next time I may cut back a little on the hot sauce because as someone else said its a little overpowering. Very tasty!
