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...

Yummy buffalo casserole

This casserole was a huge hit with my boyfriend and I! I used franks buffalo sauce and shell pasta, I also added a can of tomatoes with chilies. Since I don't like blue cheese I just topped it with Mexican mix and then my boyfriend put blue cheese dressing on it! Will definitely be making again.

Not visually appealing

The dish smelled great, but the sauce turned out to be light pink after you add the hot sauce. My husband loved it, but me and my son thought it was not appealing; light pink glop, yuck. I will not be making it again.

This is for everyone....Franks buffalo wing sauce and Franks hot sauce are not the same. The wing sauce is weaker and to me personally if I wanted something hot tasting would not use this, but use only as a marinade the chicken. Thanks for your time.

Creamy goodness!

I adjusted the recipe to serve 4. Used less than the suggested amount of pasta. I had Frank's Buffalo sauce and I doubled the amount, and added a can of diced tomatoes, which really added a nice flavor to the dish. I also sweated the veggies and added the garlic at the same time as the chicken. This was a fun recipe and I would make it again. Thanks to everyone else who left good comments!

Easy to fix

Buffalo Chicken Casserole, A WINNER!

I LOVED this recipe!! I made it for a superbowl party and everyone loved it! I served sour cream on the side to cut the heat a bit for those that werent too fond of the spicyness. It was great! I am going to try it again with less pasta (I used 6oz after reading the reviews) and using skim milk. Maybe cutting the calories even further!
This is a homerun. A comfort food and lighter in calories!

Creamy, delicious and light

Delicious!

I made this recipe with a few modifications:

10 oz noodles instead of 12 oz
1/2 yellow bell pepper instead of an onion
No celery
Feta instead of blue cheese
6 oz hot sauce instead of 5

It was delicious! I am not a big fan of spicy food, but my boyfriend loves spicy food, and this dish was perfect for both of us. He added hot sauce to his portion, and I kept my hot sauce at a minimum. I will definitely make this again!
