I let a photo of this dish slip through Instagram this past weekend, and I got several pretty excited responses. Not surprising, since this is a genius idea!
It’s been a while since I have fed my buffalo chicken obsession with anything new. To be quite honest, my buffalo chicken obsession has actually waned quite a bit lately. The only thing I can possibly attribute this to is the fact that we hardly ever go out to eat anymore and restaurants are usually where I get my fill of the fiery stuff.
I’ve seen a few different buff chick pasta salad recipes floating around the interwebs, and decided to take the bests parts of each one and combine them all together.
Considering I haven’t stopped thinking about this stuff since I finished the last bite of it, I’d say the obsession is back. With a vengeance.
Buffalo Chicken Pasta Salad
- 1 box pasta, cooked, drained and cooled
- 2 large chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
- 5 celery stalks, sliced
- 2 carrots, sliced
- 1/2 red onion, finely diced
- 1 cup blue cheese dressing
- 1/2 – 3/4 cup buffalo sauce (depending on how hot you want it)
- Fresh ground pepper, to taste
In a large bowl, combine pasta, chicken and veggies.
In a small bowl, mix together blue cheese dressing and hot sauce and add to pasta mixture. Toss everything to combine and season with pepper.
Amazing. Creamy, spicy, crunchy, perfect.
