Buffalo Chicken Spaghetti


This might be my new favorite pasta dish.   It combined two of my favorite dishes - buffalo chicken dip and pasta.  I used a rotiserrie chicken and it came together in no time.  The hardest part of this recipe is boiling the pasta.

We absolutely loved the flavors in this dish.  This does have a nice kick to it.  Feel free to adjust the hot sauce to your desired level of heat.  I like spicy food, so I went for the full 1/2 cup.  We topped the pasta with some green onions for color and a little crunch.  Give this a try.  I promise you won't be disappointed.




Buffalo Chicken Spaghetti
(Printable Recipe)

  • 16 oz spaghetti
  • 3 cups cooked, chopped chicken (I use a rotisserie)
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 8 oz cream cheese (can use light)
  • 1/3 - 1/2 cup Frank's hot sauce (more or less to taste)
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup Ranch dressing
  • green onions
  • cheddar cheese

Cook spaghetti according to package directions, drain.

In a large sauce pan, combine chicken broth, cream cheese, hot sauce, cheddar cheese and Ranch. Stir until cream cheese is melted and sauce is warm. Add chicken and toss with spaghetti.

Serve with green onions and more cheddar cheese if desired.

    1. I usually find it on the top shelf in the Ketchup section of the grocer. But go for Franks "Buffalo" Sauce - very flavorful. The "Hot" is too hot and heavy.

  9. This would easily serve 6-8 people. I would say 8 with salad and bread and dessert.

  10. Gail - Frank's hot sauce is a thicker type of hot sauce used on buffalo chicken wings. It will be near the ketchup and regular hot sauce at the grocery store.

  13. I'm in the same boat as Rhoynwynn.. I don't like ranch, but I also don't like bleu cheese! Any other suggestions?? Maybe dry ranch packet? I do like that! lol

  14. Ashley - you can use some dry Ranch and sour cream or Greek yogurt

  15. I made this last night and it was wonderful! I was a little afraid of the hot sauce, so I used sparingly, and it was just the right amount. It was also great as leftovers tonight, I threw in a chopped up tomato to give the leftovers a little more liquid.
