Buffalo Chicken Casserole

September/October 2010

Your rating: None Average: 3.3 (698 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...

Needs major revisions

Was skeptical about the milk and cornstarch and rightly so. Had NO flavor. I even tripled the hot sauce recs to taste anything, also garlic. The chicken mixture stayed congealed on top instead of baking into the dish like with other casseroles which left my noodles hard. Would recommend using cream of chicken soup and more cheese. Probly won't even attempt again...

Substandard

I was disappointed in this casserole, and embarrassed that I brought it for a school lunch. I would substitute sharp cheddar for the bleu cheese, and I would use more hot sauce. It could also use some creaminess (maybe some cream cheese). I would tweak this recipe a lot if I made it again.

Delicious!

I was very skeptical about the reviews that were given, but my boyfriend and I love anything that has to do with buffalo chicken, so we decided to give it a try.
I followed the comments about using 8 oz of pasta instead of 12 oz. Since you can never have too much garlic, I tripled the garlic. I made the rest of the recipe exact, and then like always, I added my tweaks:

3 oz Frank's RedHot
4 T garlic (and ended up using a dash of garlic powder)
2-3 dashes of red pepper flakes
2-3 dashes of pepper
2 dashes of salt

Because there was so much extra hot sauce, there definitely would have been enough for the full 12 oz of pasta. It was a bit runny, so I put it back in the oven for 5 minutes. It came out thicker, and very delicious! I will definitely be making this again.

I don't like it, on the picture it looks delicious, but I don't like it. The blue cheese doesn't fit with the other taste and I have to finish it tomorrow. None of my family members liked it
