Buffalo Chicken Pasta

Inspired by Betty Crocker's GF Buffalo Chicken Casserole.

Disclaimer: I realize the last several posts have featured chicken. We eat more than chicken around here. I swear.

Now, I am a huge fan of chips and brownies and wine for dinner, but I couldn't bring myself to serve what is basically a party dip with chips crumbled on top as a nutritious wholesome meal.

So, I tweaked it a bit. It turned out like a glorified mac n cheese. Which totally counts as nutritious.

Buffalo Chicken Pasta

Boil some gluten-free penne pasta.
Cook 2 chicken breasts (or thighs, or whatevs). I boiled mine.

While the chicken is cooking, place in the bowl of your kitchen aid mixer: (OMG I LOVE THIS THING):

1/2 c. pain greek yogurt
1/2 block of gluten-free cream cheese, cut into chunks
1/2 cup gluten-free hot sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

These ingredients should come to room temperature while the chicken and noodles cook.

Add the hot cooked chicken and mix on the lowest setting to combine.
Stir in the noodles.

Holy moly it's good. Like go back and pick at the leftovers a couple of times before you put it away good.

Serve with broccoli. For your conscience's sake.
