Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese

By: Bridgett from The Happy Little Tomato
This image courtesy of thehappylittletomato.com

Adored by both kids and adults, this fantastic mac and cheese recipe comes from our friend Bridgette at The Little Happy Tomato. Extra cheesy, and full of chicken, this recipe has a bit of a kick. There's nothing better than comfort food.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound elbow macaroni
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 3 cups rotisserie chicken or pre-cooked grilled chicken, shredded
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup Texas Pete or your favorite hot suace, divided
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 2 1/2 cups half-and-half
  • 3 cups extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup Blue cheese or Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
  • 2 teaspoons Frank's Hot sauce or your favorite hot sauce (to sprinkle on top)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray.
     
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil; add the 3/4 of the box of pasta (i found the entire box was a bit much for a 13x9 inch pan) cook until al dente, about 7 minutes. Drain.
     
  3. Meanwhile, melt 3 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the chicken and garlic and cook 2 minutes, then add 1/2 cup hot sauce and simmer until slightly thickened, about 1 more minute.
     
  4. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the flour and mustard until smooth. Whisk in the half-and-half, then add the remaining 1/4 cup hot sauce and stir until thick, about 2 minutes.
     
  5. Whisk in the cheese, then whisk in the sour cream until smooth.
     
  6.  Mix together chicken, pasta and cheese sauce. Pour into lightly greased 9x13 pan. Sprinkle blue cheese or gorgonzola over the macaroni.
     
  7. Bake until bubbly, 30 to 40 minutes. Let rest 10 minutes before serving. Drizzle with some Red Hot on the top for color.
