Time 1h30m

Yield 12

Number Of Ingredients 10

1 (16 ounce) package uncooked rotini pasta
½ cup mayonnaise
1 cup chunky blue cheese dressing
½ cup buffalo wing sauce
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
1 pound frozen cooked chicken strips, defrosted and diced
½ cup red bell pepper, diced
½ cup green bell pepper, diced

Steps:

  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the rotini, and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  • Stir together the mayonnaise, blue cheese dressing, buffalo wing sauce, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the chicken, bell peppers, red onion, and cooked pasta and toss to coat with the dressing. Cover and chill at least 1 hour in the refrigerator before serving.

BUFFALO CHICKEN PASTA SALAD



Buffalo Chicken Pasta Salad image

Full of buffalo flavors, this buffalo chicken pasta salad is one of my favorite side dishes at potlucks and tailgate parties, but you could also serve it as a main. It can be eaten warm or cold so it's easy to make ahead of time. Sometimes I even use precooked small shrimp instead of the chicken or leave out the meat if I need a vegetarian dish. -Lisa Huff, Wilton, Connecticut

BUFFALO CHICKEN PASTA



Buffalo Chicken Pasta image

This is a nice meal for when you are craving buffalo wings. The celery is definitely optional. This isn't super healthy, but I usually help it out by using WW pasta, Olive Oil (or bake the chicken), Olive Oil Mayo, and skim milk. Also feel free to sub Ranch dressing for the Blue Cheese. Definitely serve it with a big salad!

BUFFALO CHICKEN PASTA



Buffalo Chicken Pasta image

Buffalo chicken is a favorite in our household. Combine it with pasta and you have the ultimate comfort food. If you prefer less spicy food, the addition of sour cream, ranch dressing and mozzarella provides a creamy texture and cooler flavor that nicely balances the spice in this buffalo chicken pasta dish. -Kathy White, Henderson, Nevada

Categories     Chicken

Time 30m

Yield 4 Pounds, 8-10 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 7

1/2 cup red onion, chopped
1 cup celery, chopped
1/2 cup blue cheese, crumbles
2 cups cooked chicken, chopped
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup hot sauce
1 lb rotini pasta

Steps:

  • Cook pasta per package instructions, rinse with cold water.
  • While the pasta is cooking chop half of a red onion, 5 stalks of celery, and half of a precooked whole chicken into equal size small pieces. Add all of these to a large mixing bowl along with the container of blue cheese crumbles.
  • In a separate bowl whisk together the hot sauce and olive oil, I use an immersion blender as these two items are not easy to combine. If you are using a whisk slowly add the olive oil while mixing.
  • Add the pasta and sauce to the large mixing bowl and mix well but don't destroy the pasta. You are looking to get all the little bits of goodness to get into the ridges of the pasta.
  • For best results chill until cool. Depending on the hot sauce and your tastes you can always add more hot sauce, or add some blue cheese dressing to adjust the flavor.

BUFFALO CHICKEN PASTA SALAD



Buffalo Chicken Pasta Salad image

I invented this recipe when I decided I wanted to fix something like buffalo wings for dinner, but wanted something that would be better when the weather is hot outside. I think this worked out very well.

Provided by Kendra

Categories     Chicken

Time 50m

Yield 8 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 12

8 ounces rotini pasta
8 ounces chicken strips (I use Tyson's Grilled Chicken Strips)
3/4 cup celery (minced)
1/2 cup green pepper (minced, you can use red, orange, or yellow if you prefer)
1/2 cup purple onion (minced)
2 eggs (Hard Boiled and chopped)
3/4 cup mayonnaise (I use low-fat mayo)
1/2 cup ranch dressing (I use low-fat dressing)
1/4 cup buffalo wing sauce
3 tablespoons vinegar
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
pepper, as desired

Steps:

  • Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain, rinse with cold water, and drain again.
  • Chop chicken into bite-sized pieces. I sometimes use Southwest flavored chicken strips instead of grilled. Just depends on what I have on hand.
  • Combine pasta, chicken, celery, peppers, and onion. Other veggies can be added if you like. I've sometimes added peas, corn, or cucumbers.
  • Mix remaining ingredients until combined, and pour over pasta mixture.
  • You can use blue cheese dressing instead of ranch, or more or less hot sauce, depending on your personal preferences. Chill for at least 30 minutes, or until ready to serve.
