Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes. Drain.

  • Stir sour cream and cream cheese together in a bowl until smooth; add evaporated milk. Stir Buffalo wing sauce and ranch dressing into sour cream mixture; mix in shredded chicken, macaroni, and 1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese. Pour macaroni mixture into prepared baking dish. Top with bread crumbs and remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese; drizzle melted butter over the top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bubbling and golden, 20 to 30 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute 2 to 3 boiled and shredded chicken breast halves for the rotisserie chicken.

Delicious! I halved the recipe and omitted the chicken b/c it was part of our Friday Lenten dinner (no meat) but followed the recipe otherwise. This was so simple to make and had so much flavor that we really didn't even miss the chicken but I will add it to try next time. My mac and cheese hating son gobbled this up but I knew he would b/c he LOVES anything 'buffalo'. This is a definite keeper YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

Haven't tried this yet but it sounds good. You did fail to mention what to do with the macaroni. Do you mix it with the cheese mixture or put it in the pan and pour the cheese mixture over it before you bake it? Read More

Great if you love anything buffalo. The only thing I changed was the chicken. 3 boneless skinless chicken breast rubbed with a chicken season rub. Cooked until almost done. Then pulled the chicken and added it to the sauce mixture. Read More

This recipe was good! My daughter has been asking for Macaroni and cheese so I figured why not try this recipe it has her two favorite foods buffalo chicken and mac an cheese lol So it was a nice surprise for her for dinner this evening on her first day back to school! She liked it Alot! I thought it was ok I have zero complaints. My only changes were I did omit the breadcrumbs on top and I cubed up chicken breast. I will Probably make this again for my daughter if she requests it again! Read More

This recipe is amazing. Made it per recipe the first time. The next time I made it I was eating gluten free so used rice macaroni and also made my own hot sauce (1/2 c tapatio 1/2 c butter 1/2 c olive oil). I also added some celery. The gluten free version is just as good as the original. Thank you so much for this awesome recipe!! Read More

I used canned chicken breast instead and it was still really good. I will use "real" chicken next time. I did not add the bread crumbs so I used about 1/2 the butter. I suggest to follow directions and use a 9x13 pan (I used a casserole) because the more of that lightly browned cheese the better. My husband sprinkled bleu cheese crumbs on his portion and loved it with our without. This would be a good addition to a Super Bowl Sunday buffet. I would include the traditional celery sticks too because this is so rich. DELICIOUS! Read More

I used a package of ground turkey low fat condensed milk low fat sour cream and no butter on the crumbs. Other than that I kept the recipe the same and it was AWESOME!! it was easy to put together and it was delicious! Read More
