Buffalo Chicken Baked Penne

It's hard to believe that the New Year is just around the corner. I don't know about you, but 2014 flew by for me! I do find myself blogging less over the holidays but this is one of my favorite dishes and it's too good not to share! If you are a fan of Buffalo Chicken then you will have to try this dish!

Buffalo Chicken Baked Penne
Serves 6

12 oz penne pasta cooked to al dente
2 cups shredded chicken breast
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp dry ranch seasoning
1/2 cup buffalo wing sauce (I used Frank’s)
2 tbsp. butter
1 tbsp. flour
1/2 cup milk
2 cups shredded cheese, divided (I used gouda)
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Add penne to a baking dish.

In a medium saucepan over low heat whisk together butter and flour forming a roux. Once bubbly stir in the milk, once cup of the shredded cheese, and buffalo sauce. Stirring often, until well blended.

Season cooked chicken with ranch and add to the cheese mixture.  Pour over the pasta and toss.

Sprinkle remaining cup of cheese and panko bread crumbs over the top of the pasta.

Bake until golden, approximately 20-25 minutes. Top with crumbled blue cheese and green onions, if desired. Enjoy!
