Buffalo Chicken Spaghetti Recipe – chicken and spaghetti tossed in a cream cheese, buffalo, cheddar and Ranch sauce – OMG! SO good. I wanted to lick the plate!
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 ½ 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
3 cups cooked, chopped chicken (I use a rotisserie)
2 cups chicken broth
1 (8-oz) package cream cheese (can use light)
⅓ – ½ cup Frank’s hot sauce (more or less to taste)
½ cup cheddar cheese
1 cup Ranch dressing
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.
Has anyone made this in advance and served later?
Looking to make this ahead of time and reheat for dinner a couple nights later. Anyone reheated it?
I was able to send a message to Pinterest…we will see how it goes 🙂
How much cheddar?
Can you clarify what shape of the chedar cheese to use?
Andrea – YAY! I'm so happy to hear you are loving all the recipes!
Making this again tonight, it's about my 4th or 5th time and I just wanted to say THANK YOU so much for the recipe! My family loves it. Your blog is the one I come to every time for great recipes, we've yet to have a failure from anything you've posted 🙂
Made this for the second time tonight–it's awesome!! Pretty much everything I cook is from your site! 🙂
I ran across this recipe last week and thought it was really interesting and put it on my "to make" list. Well I made it tonight and…. *O*M*G* it's delicious!!! Thank you so much for sharing it!!!! 🙂
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.
Ashley – you can use some dry Ranch and sour cream or Greek yogurt
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
Wondering if bleu cheese dressing would work as a substitute for Ranch? (I don't like Ranch dressing.)
Rhoynwynn – you can absolutely sub bleu cheese dressing for the Ranch dressing
Just amde this for dinner tonite. Super easy. I used Louisiana Wing Sauce instead of Franks and topped it with crumbled blue cheese!! YUM…might add more chicken next time…Thanks Steph
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.
This would easily serve 6-8 people. I would say 8 with salad and bread and dessert.
How many People will this serve (salad and garlic bread and dessert will be served — young adults)??
So quick, I love it!! I also love Buffalo chicken, so this will be a hit in my home. TFS
Another one I'll be Pinning and making very soon!
Love all your recipes and I would weigh 500lbs if I lived with you!!!Great uncomplicated recipes!
Sorry – I have never heard of "Frank's Hot Sauce". Can you help me out?
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.
Love this for a quick and tasty dinner idea!
those rotisserie chickens really make it easy to whoop up something
So quick, easy and flavourful!
Oh my gosh this looks so sinfully good!
