Buffalo Chicken Bake






I never get sick of Buffalo chicken....EVER. If it were up to me, I would make it at least 3 times a week! Well, it's been a while since I've made a baked buffalo chicken dish so I decided why not make one for dinner tonight. This delicious Buffalo Chicken Bake has all of my favorites combined with pasta and topped with cheese and bread crumbs. Bake it in the oven and serve with a green salad and you have the perfect dinner!

Ingredients
1 cup cooked chicken breast, chopped

3/4 cup reduced fat shredded mexican cheese blend, divided (I used Kraft)
1/4 cup reduced fat blue cheese crumbles
1/2 cup Franks Buffalo Wing Sauce
1/4 cup bread crumbs

  12. Hi Emily,
    Thanks! I've cooked a few different ways. Usually I will poach two chicken breasts and chop them up. I've also made the chicken ahead of time in the crock pot as well. Hope you enjoy!

  17. Can you use something other than Greek yogurt? I haven't had much luck cooking with it in the past. Just curious! Thanks.

  18. Absolutely. Cream cheese would work great or maybe try low fat sour cream?
