Buffalo Chicken Casserole

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...

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

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!

It sounds like ,with all the substitutions you made, you have created a new recipe!

Rich comfort-y food feel

Even halved, this made too much for my husband and myself. I thoroughly enjoy a good spicy meal, but I must have messed up the ratios somewhere because this was a little too spicy for me to eat. My husband, however enjoyed it and had seconds. It was very rich even though I used skim milk, which is a good thing. I like that even though it's supposed to be a healthy meal, it still had the comfort food feel to it. I used medium sized shells (like in Velveeta) and flour (instead of the cornstarch) because that was what I had on hand. I don't think I'll be making this recipe again.

Relatively easy
