Buffalo Macaroni and Cheese Recipe

 The best of comfort food. Quick and easy buffalo macaroni and cheese recipe from Rae Gun Ramblings

My husband and I have a joke. When we don’t know what to have for dinner but aren’t desperate enough to eat out we usually have Mac and Cheese. I’ve already shared our yummy Taco Mac and Cheese Recipe but I like to throw all kinds of different things in my base macaroni and cheese recipe. It always gives us the quick and yummy comfort food meal but with different additions it can take on very different tastes.

Delicious buffalo mac and cheese recipe. Fast enough for weeknight eating - Rae Gun Ramblings

I’ve always love the flavors of buffalo wings and blue cheese dressing whether in plain old wings, pizza, or even macaroni and cheese. So here’s one of my favorite easy comfort meals and my buffalo macaroni and cheese recipe.

 Quick and delicious buffalo macaroni and cheese recipe - Rae Gun Ramblings

  • 1 Chicken Breast, cooked and chopped
  • 1/4 C Buffalo Sauce like Franks Red Hot
  • 3 TBS All Purpose Flour
  • 3 TBS Butter
  • 1/2 to 1 C shredded cheese (depending on your own tastes, I like colby jack)
  • 1 1/2 C Milk
  • Salt, pepper and granulated onion to taste
  • 6 oz elbow macaroni, cooked
  • 1/2 C blue cheese crumbles (add more if you really like blue cheese!)
  • 1/2 to 1 C panko bread crumbs
  • Spray Oil
  1. Combine buffalo sauce and chicken add more or less to taste. Set aside.
  2. Make cheese sauce by melting butter and stirring in flour cook over medium heat a few minutes. Slowly whisk in milk to make a cream sauce. Add cheese and seasoning.
  3. Stir seasoned chicken into cheese sauce.
  4. Stir in cooked macaroni. Add some of the pasta water if you want a thinner consistency. You can serve it now topped with blue cheese but I like to bake it for extra yumminess.
  5. Pour into a glass casserole dish and top with blue cheese crumbles.
  6. Sprinkle with panko bread crumbs on top and spray with oil.
  7. Broil until topping is crisp. Do not leave unattended the breadcrumbs can burn quickly.
  8. Serve and enjoy!

  1. This looks fantastically delicious! I am still looking for a homemade mac n’ cheese version that Seth will eat and this looks like a winner!

  2. That looks delicious! Is it super spicy? I always avoid the buffalo sauce and am not sure how hot it really is and would hate for it to be too spicy for my girls. I want to try it though, it sounds tasty!

    • Not really spicy (at least in the proportions I did) YOU can definitely add more or less of the sauce to suit your tastes but with the creaminess of the the mac and cheese it’s more of a flavor than a spice I’d just kind of start with a smaller amount of the sauce and taste it and just know it’ll get even less intense when mixed with the cheese sauce. And you can always add more after you combine them if you want!

  3. oh my gosh! Can you please just bring some of this to my house??

  4. I love adding a little spice to my recipes. This looks delicious! I think it would be hubby approved too.

  5. This looks wonderful! But do you mean 16 oz of pasta? Does it fill a 9″ x 13″ pan? Thank you!

  6. Look wonderful but I’m confused. It says “melt flour and stir in flour” can you clarify? I really want to try it!!
