Buffalo Chicken Casserole

September/October 2010

Your rating: None Average: 3.3 (658 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.

"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...

Awesomely delicious!

I made this recipe as is with no major modifications and loved it. My husband, who is from Buffalo, loved it to. But he's not a big blue cheese fan so suggested that in the future I substitute mozzarella for some of the blue cheese. Apparently that is the chosen alternate to blue cheese in Buffalo. And Frank's hot sauce is definitely the way to go.

True, I don't know how healthy the stuff is, if you use natural, organic products it seems pretty ok. Not a lot of processed stuff in it, but low cal it is not! I had to be careful not to eat too much at one sitting, it was so good it was hard not to. I plan in making this for the next football party I go to, it's sure to be a hit!

Great with some modefications! Simple and easy.

I'm in college and my roommate and I loved this! It lasted us each about three days for dinner! We used fully cooked cubed chicken from tyson, poured in half of the hot-sauce bottle, added spicy ranch seasoning packet and used low fat blue cheese. We also used 16 oz farfalle noodle to accomodate for 1.5 lbs chicken. So good! Came to about 420 calories per 1/8!

Delicious, low calorie
Tasty and Simple

I made recipe exactly as written except that I doubled the hot sauce. That was a great call! i would also reduce pasta as mentioned in other reviews and would reduce blue cheese amount or use a softer version like gorgonzola. I like blue cheese but it was overpowering in my finished product.

Certainly a keeper with a few adjustments

Just made this recipe for the first time and paid attention to all other comments to this point. I halved the noodles and added the blue cheese to the sauce so that it melted in rather than sprinkling it on the top. I also doubled the amount of hot sauce that the recipe called for to 8 total tablespoons. Instead of purchasing chicken breasts, I purchased a rotisserie chicken and used it instead. All in all, I do feel that this recipe is a great one, but only with the adjustments made. I also think that it needs more hot sauce, but that is just my opinion! :)

Very creamy sauce

Maybe a little too good...

This was so tasty that everyone ate a little too much of it. One person alone ate four servings (granted, he's a big eater), but it was that good. I made it exactly by the recipe, except with skim milk, and it came out great.

Next time I will try to ease my conscience and make it a little more healthy, maybe double the veggies and reduce the pasta a bit; I think the recipe is tasty enough to take it and still be something we would really like.

Also I would bring this as-is to a potluck party where people usually eat unhealthy things, this would be a better substitute and I'm sure would go over well.

It has pretty much everything I love in a recipe: Pasta, Chicken, Frank's Red Hot sauce, cheese
