Buffalo Chicken Casserole

September/October 2010

Your rating: None Average: 3.3 (697 votes)

We took the classic flavors of Buffalo wings—hot sauce, blue cheese, carrots and celery—and created a finger-licking-good casserole. Serve this dish during football season to a hungry crowd and it’s sure to be a hit. We don’t typically recommend ingredients by brand name, but in this case we make an exception for Frank’s RedHot Sauce. It has the perfect balance of spice and tang for this casserole. Texas Pete and Crystal hot sauces are suitable alternatives if you can’t find Frank’s.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Seriously good! I doubled the blue cheese and Frank's Red Hot sauce and I used 2% milk, and it was awesome! My husband loved it and our 17 month old even had a few tastes from my plate and was licking her fingers and lips! I will...

I was looking for a healthy alternative to buffalo wings for a long time and this recipe was great. I did the following things based on the comments I read: Thank you all who posted comments...
1. After I cut up my raw chicken breast, I marinaded it in Frank's buffalo wing sauce (which I used instead of hot sauce - but it is probably the same thing...) This helped flavor the meat and make it moist in the process
2. I shredded the carrots (great idea...)
3. I added about 1/4 of the bottle of the Frank's buffalo wing sauce. The milk/corn starch mixture balances it out so well.
4. Instead of adding extra blue cheese to the creamy chicken sauce, I added 2 of the Laughing Cow lite blue cheese wedges. This gave the sauce the extra blue cheese flavor and added creaminess. There are only a couple of stores in my area who sell the blue cheese wedges.
5. I used about 1/2 pound of pasta.

The amazing part is that I did not slave to make this dish. There are so many casseroles out there where you spend so much time prepping. This was not too bad...

I prepped the casserole yesterday and baked it today until it was hot. My husband said this was probably one of the best things I have made. I was amazed as to how rich and yummy it tasted. Plus the celery was cooked perfectly with a little crunch and the carrots and onion complimented this so nicely.

I used 8 ozs of farfalle (what I had in the pantry), 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, doubled the amount of Frank's buffalo sauce and mixed in a little blue cheese as well as sprinkling it over the top. Two big thumbs up from us!

I read all the comments on this recipe prior to making it. I only used about 8 ounces of pasta which was perfect and I put the blue cheese in with the sauce. I had extra so I sprinkled some on top as well. I used the amount of Franks Hot Sauce that was called for with a few extra dashes. My boyfriend loves spicy food so I put out more sauce for his use but he said it didn't need it. He really enjoyed the dish and said he would love to have it again. I thougth it was very good as well and I don't care much for spicy food. I also used a precooked, roasted chicken and just shredded the breast meat into the sauce. I would make this again.

This just did not work for me. I doubled the hot sauce and still thought that wing flavor was drowned but the pasta and other elements. It might be better as a stirfry with a sauce served over the noodles. I love buffalo anything and I was disappointed with this.
