Buffalo Chicken Fettuccine Recipe @fifteenspatulas

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.

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:
