This recipe is awful. The individual ingredients are great so you have to ask yourself, why it is so bad? Some things just don't mix well. Take this off the internet.
Buffalo Chicken Casserole
From EatingWell: September/October 2010
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.

Super excited to share this meal and I didn't because it's so boring! It needs some major tweaks; not sure that elbow mac is the way to go. Majority of the flavor is the noodles...none of the flavors really combined. Maybe use potato instead of mac? I like the idea of substituting 2 cups of milk for chicken broth but overall this is definitely NOT worth the effort.
If you look up the full-fat version of this recipe, which calls for almost a full stick of butter, cream and nearly two pounds of cheese, you can see how this may not taste anywhere near that. This is bland, bland, bland. You just cannot lighten up a recipe like that.
Bland! Would never make this one again.
This was definitely bland.... My ideas to fix it next time would be to use 2 cups of milk instead of four AND TWO CUPS OF CHICKEN BROTH.... Also, maybe use some adobo spice while browning the chicken..... I used chicken tenders and it was a beautiful presentation.... Also, I didn't add the carrots and celery while cooking, I cut them into strips and served them raw on the side..... My family doesn't like cooked veggies.... My boyfriend hates blue cheese so next time I may only put it on half the dish or melt it on the side to drizzle on each serving after cooking.....
