This Buffalo Chicken Pasta has quickly become a favorite in our house. It is SO easy and SO good! Everything cooks in the same pan and it ready in a flash.

This pasta only has a few simple ingredients and comes together in under 20 minutes. I LOVE quick meals like this one!! If you want to cut down on the cooking time even more, feel free to use some rotisserie chicken or leftover cooked chicken instead of cooking raw chicken. I’ve made this both ways, and it equally delicious either way.

Now, this is kind of spicy. If you are sensitive to heat, make sure to reduce the amount of buffalo sauce. I used 3 tablespoons of Frank’s Wing Sauce and it was kicking! You might want to start with one tablespoon and add more gradually as you taste the sauce.

As I said, we LOVED this pasta. We have made this several times and can’t get enough of it. All you need is a little side salad and a roll and dinner is done!

  1. Katherine is great, isn't she? I've gotten several of our favorites from her blog.

    This one is not one we've made yet but it does sound spectacular! I love buffalo sauce on any chicken. The vinegary/buttery kick makes my mouth happy!

  2. I've seen a couple of recipes similar to this and couldn't figure out if I'd like it. There are some strong flavors involved. Thanks for the post, I'll give it a try.
