Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese

Alright time to get back into Taste of Tuesday posts! And starting off with a bang!  Although I'm a girl who loves me some buffalo wings (bone-in please), I typically don't like the idea of spreading the buffalo love elsewhere.  However, when Iowa Girl Eats posted this recipe, not to mention that it used Greek yogurt, and I ready to dig in. I'm salivating just looking at these pictures. IGE's recipe is too good not to share!
(Makes 6+ servings)
  • Box of noodles (16 oz)
  • 1 lb chicken breast
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar
  • 7 oz plain Greek yogurt
  • 1.5 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup buffalo sauce (and 2 Tbsp for topping)
  • 1/3 cup bleu cheese
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • Optional: celery
  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Cook noodles.
  • Cut chicken into bite size pieces and saute in medium skillet over medium heat; season with salt and pepper.
  • Remove chicken from skillet and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, melt butter over mince heat. Add garlic and saute.
  • Next, make a rue by whisking in flour. Once combined with garlic and butter; slowly mix in milk.
  • Cook for ~3 minutes and turn off burner.
  • Stir in buffalo sauce
  • Add Greek yogurt, cheddar and bleu cheeses
  • Mix together and get as smooth as possible (a few lumps are okay!)
  • Add pasta and chicken to sauce. Mix together and transfer into a 8"x11" pan
  • Top with break crumbs, a handful of extra shredded cheddar and buffalo sauce
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until cheese is melted and breads crumbs are toasted
Bon Appetit!

If you're like me and love celery sticks with your wings, add some chopped fresh celery!
