Buffalo Chicken Pasta is one of the easiest dinners to make, it’s full of flavor! The sauce is creamy and delicious and easy creamy and you will not miss the messy chicken wings… top with a drizzle of ranch dressing or crumbled blue cheese.
No messy sticky fingers, just a bowl full of yumminess
This has a great go-to dish.
I go to it when my kids stand in front of the refrigerator with the doors opened wide and want something to eat, but aren’t looking for an entire 5 course meal to be prepared.
I often have cooked pasta in the fridge and cooked chicken, it really makes putting quick easy meals together WAY quicker if I already have some basics prepared.
If I don’t…. well then this takes a few more minutes but at the most 30 minutes.
This is great game day food!
It’s spicy and adding some diced celery gives it a great crunch.
How to make this Buffalo Chicken Pasta Recipe:
- Prepare the pasta according to the package directions.
- In a medium bowl mix the chicken with the hot sauce (or buffalo sauce) with sour cream.
- Then stir the mixture into the pasta.
- Garnish and serve.
My kids eat this cold, I prefer it hot. But it can easily go on your game day table for all to enjoy.

Ooh, this is such a good idea! I might have to figure out a way to make this without chicken. 😀
you could try roasted cauliflower in it instead 🙂

This is a WONDERFUL recipe. If there were 10 stars I would have given it a 10. It has only a few ingredients yet it is so flavorful. My son LOOOOVES this recipe he wants me to make it all the time. I have one question about the recipe should it be served hot or cold?
Happy to hear your son loves it. I do too. I like it both hot and cold 🙂 when I make it I eat it hot, and the next day for lunch I don’t bother heating it and just eat it cold!
