Get dinner on the table quickly with this Buffalo Chicken Mac ‘n Cheese casserole. Rotisserie chicken and Bob Evans macaroni and cheese make this a shortcut meal the whole family will love.
Thank you to Bob Evans Farms for sponsoring this post. As always, I only support brands I love and all opinions are my own.
We’re in the midst of crazy busy season at our house. Cross country meets, homework, lessons and appointments…all on top of a complete kitchen remodel! Quick and easy dinners are where it is at. My family quickly fell in love with this Buffalo Chicken Mac ‘n Cheese. Matt’s favorite is anything buffalo chicken…Kinslee’s is anything macaroni and cheese. My favorite is anything that I can get on the table in under an hour. This recipe fits all of those things and I’m excited to share it with you today.
I used two shortcuts to keep this recipe quick and easy. The first is rotisserie chicken. The second is Bob Evans Macaroni and Cheese. Like I said, Kinslee LOVES macaroni and cheese. She’d eat Bob Evans Macaroni and Cheese every day for lunch and never get tired of it. It’s easier than ever to pack in kids thermoses for lunch or to serve as a side dish, but in this recipe we used it as the base for a delicious dinner. Bob Evans Macaroni and Cheese is already creamy, so just a little extra cheddar cheese is all that is needed for a buffalo chicken cheesy casserole.
Add in spicy buffalo sauce and ranch dip for that classic buffalo chicken flavor. Then top with blue cheese crumbles and green onion for a pop of color and flavor after baking.
As I mentioned above, for this recipe, we like to buy an already-cooked rotisserie chicken at the grocery store. We tear off the chicken and add it to the casserole, both white meat and dark meat. The rotisserie chicken already has a great flavor that adds to this casserole.
What are your other options?
We bake this casserole in a 9″ deep dish pie plate. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for about 30 minutes to heat through. The edges will be bubbly and the inside should be hot.
Serve this easy casserole with a side salad or your kids favorite vegetable. My kids love scooping it up with homemade bread. They’ve even been known to wrap up any leftovers in a tortilla for lunch the next day!
