    handsandfeet's Note:

    There are a lot of fancy, complicated, and utterly delicious looking recipes for buffalo chicken mac and cheese. I'm from Buffalo- I've always wanted to try them. On my current schedule with my current budget, it's not happening. This is an easy recipe to throw together, using ingredients I have around most of the time. It's cheap, and a huge improvement over simple box mac and cheese.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 (7 1/4 ounce) boxes macaroni and cheese mix
    • 2 (12 1/2 ounce) cans chicken, drained
    • 1/2 cup Frank's red hot sauce (or other hot sauce, I guess. Franks though! Best! I use more than this, I really enjoy it)
    • 1 cup cheese, shredded (I prefer cheddar)
    • 1/3 cup bleu cheese salad dressing
    • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder (optional)
    • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (optional)
    • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese, grated (optional)


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375.
    2. 2
      Prepare mac and cheese according to box instructions (I didn't include the ingredients the box might call for, since they're all different).
    3. 3
      While mac and cheese is cooking, mix chicken with hot sauce and blue cheese. I broke up the bigger chunks of chicken to make it more consistent, but that's up to you.
    4. 4
      In a 9x12 dish, pour about half the mac and cheese.
    5. 5
      Add the chicken/hot sauce/blue cheese in another layer, and cover with the rest of the mac and cheese.
    6. 6
      Add about half of the shredded cheese and mix a bit, so the layers aren't precise but still somewhat there.
    7. 7
      Sprinkle the rest of the shredded cheese on top.
    8. 8
      Bake for about 20 minutes.
    9. 9
      Optionally, sprinkle the remaining ingredients (y'know, the optional ones) on top. (Now, I'm no expert. I've made this once and I did this part half way through cooking, but I suppose I could've done it at the beginning).
    10. 10
      Bake for another 20 minutes or so. I chose arbitrarily, when it seemed completely heated through.
    11. 11
      Serve! I served it with salad, because it's definitely pretty heavy with all that cheese and pasta. Enjoy.
