cheesy buffalo chicken alfredo bake
We’ve been back from Buffalo for just over a week now, and I am already missing buffalo wings SO much! I suppose it’s a good thing that I don’t like to fry; we’d probably be eating wings daily.
Plus, who has time to fry. Our weekday dinners, and even some week end dinners, need to be fast and easy. Housework, homework, actual work, and kids’ activities… sound familiar?
My good friend Trish from Mom on Timeout just published her first cookbook, and it is every busy mom’s new best friend.
1oo Creative Ways to use Rotisserie Chicken in Every Day Meals
The name pretty much says it all. This book has got fast, easy, and delicious meals your entire family will LOVE, all using rotisserie chicken. Trish has got ideas for soups, salads, sandwiches, even recipes for the slow cooker. There’s a chapter for super fast 20 minute dinners, and a chapter for recipes using 5 ingredients or less.
This Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Alfredo Bake requires only 5 ingredients, is just as delicious as my beloved buffalo wings, and my family loved it so much (even the fussy one) that I have made it twice in the last week alone. Use rotisserie chicken, or if you’re like me, use the leftover chicken from your fridge.
- 1/4 cup buffalo sauce
- 2 cups diced rotisserie chicken
- 1- 15 ounce jar Alfredo sauce
- 8 ounces mozzarella, shredded
- 16 ounces pasta, cooked
- preheat oven to 350 degrees
- combine the buffalo sauce and chicken in a small bowl, set aside
- combine the Alfredo sauce, about 3 ounces of the mozzarella, and the cooked pasta
- spray a 2 or 3 qt. baking dish with cooking spray
- spoon half of the pasta into the baking dish, top with chicken, and then the remaining pasta
- sprinkle with the remaining cheese
- cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes
- uncover and bake another 5 - 10 minutes until bubbly
- remove from the oven and allow to rest a few minutes before serving
Use whatever pasta you have in the pantry; the original recipe doesn’t call for it, but I ALWAYS have to have blue cheese with my buffalo chicken, so I added about 2 ounces on top with the mozzarella.
If you’d rather spend your time around the table and not slaving away in the kitchen, this is a book you need for your collection. You can find 100 Creative Ways to use Rotisserie Chicken here and you can find Trish’s other terrific recipes on her blog Mom on Timeout.
