Per serving


Oven, Stovetop, Pot (small), Baking dish, Knife


Pasta (Cavatappi)

Step 1

In a pot of salted, boiling water, cook the pasta according the package instructions. Drain once cooked, then set aside.

Rotisserie chicken

Step 2

Slice off the breasts from the rotisserie chicken if needed & remove the skin. Transfer to a cutting board or plate. Use two forks to shred the meat.

Flour (all-purpose)
Butter (unsalted)

Step 3

In a pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Whisk in the flour until smooth.

Milk (whole)
Cheddar (shredded)

Step 4

Continue whisking while slowly pouring in the milk. Allow the mixture to simmer for 1-2 min, it will begin to thicken. Whisk again, then add in most of the cheddar cheese (leaving a few tbsp for the final step). Stir until melted.

Buffalo sauce

Step 5

Pour buffalo sauce into the cheese mixture. Stir until combined.

Step 6

Add the shredded chicken & cooked pasta to the cheese sauce. Stir to evenly coat. Remove from the heat.

Blue cheese (crumbled)

Step 7

Preheat the broiler setting on the oven (you can also heat the oven to 375°F). Grease a baking dish with butter or cooking spray. Pour the cheesy pasta into the dish. Sprinkle with crumbled blue cheese (optional) & the remaining cheddar cheese. Broil until the top layer of cheese is bubbly & melted, about 5 min.

Step 8

Serve with more buffalo sauce & blue cheese crumbles. Enjoy!
