We eat a lot of wings around here. I have two teenage boys and I think if it was up to them we would eat pizza and wings every night. I saw a post awhile back from a fellow blogger, Fantastic Frugal Foods from Justa’s Kitchen for a Buffalo Chicken Casserole. What a great idea for my family. So when I was in my kitchen with some extra chicken cutlets that need to be used up, I remembered her recipe. I wanted to use what I had in my kitchen without going to the store, so I kinda of created my own version, but here is hers.
Buffalo Chicken Casserole
1 1/2 lbs boneless chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces
1 t chopped garlic
2T hot sauce (I used Frank’s)
1/4 c chopped celery (if you are not a celery fan, try carrots)
1/4 c flour
3 cups milk
3 oz cream cheese
2 T blue cheese
16 oz box of ziti (or other pasta), cooked and drained
1/2 c crushed Buffalo flavored Pretzel Crisps
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, Add butter to a large pan and melt over med high heat, add chicken, garlic, 1 T hot sauce and celery. Sauté til chicken is cooked through, about 4 minutes. remove from heat and sprinkle chicken and veg with flour.
Place back on burner over low.for 1 minute. Add milk and bring to boiling, turn to low and add cream cheese, blue cheese and remaining 1 T of hot sauce cook until cheese is melted into sauce and it is slightly thickened.
Add sauce to pasta and stir, pour into a large baking dish, 9×13
Top with crushed pretzels.
Bake for 20 minutes.
