  • Meanwhile, combine milk, blue cheese, and cream cheese in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until cheeses melt, about 5 minutes.

  • Drain pasta into a colander; reserve about 1/4 cup cooking liquid and pour into the sauce. Add Buffalo sauce, garlic powder, paprika, and black pepper and stir until smooth. Mix in the pasta and chicken and heat until chicken is warmed through, 2 to 3 minutes.
