Buffalo Chicken Pasta
This Buffalo Chicken Pasta is everything wonderful about buffalo chicken, in fettuccine alfredo form! Pasta is coated in a creamy Frank’s bechamel sauce and tossed with chicken and tomatoes.
I freely admit I have an obsession with Frank’s Hot Sauce (you know, the stuff used to dress chicken wings). Cravings will strike anytime, out of my control, and when that happens, I MUST have some. Immediately. Please tell me I’m not the only one.
I have quite a few Buffalo Chicken staples, with my favorites dishes being my Crispy Baked Chicken Wings, Buffalo Chicken Pizza, and Buffalo Chicken Dip, but sometimes I want a Fettuccine Alfredo type of thing, Buffalo Chicken Style! That’s what this is.
The sauce is creamy and wonderful, which is just about my favorite way to enjoy a noodle. I tend to look the creamier fattier sauces like on a Spaghetti Carbonara than a traditional tomato sauce, even though I love that too.
How to Make Buffalo Chicken Pasta:
The first thing we’re going to do is make a Frank’s Hot Sauce Bechamel.
Melt a couple tablespoons of butter in a skillet:
Add a couple tablespoons of flour and whisk it together to blend into a blond paste:
Slowly whisk in milk and heat it up until a creamy thick sauce comes together:
Add Frank’s hot sauce, worcestershire sauce, and chopped chicken breast and simmer until the chicken is cooked:
Cut some cherry tomatoes in half:
And add cooked fettuccine noodles to the sauce, along with the tomatoes:
Toss it all together and serve with fresh parsley on top.
