  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes. Drain.
  3. Stir sour cream and cream cheese together in a bowl until smooth; add evaporated milk. Stir Buffalo wing sauce and ranch dressing into sour cream mixture; mix in shredded chicken, macaroni, and 1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese. Pour macaroni mixture into prepared baking dish. Top with bread crumbs and remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese; drizzle melted butter over the top.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until bubbling and golden, 20 to 30 minutes.

Delicious! I halved the recipe and omitted the chicken b/c it was part of our Friday Lenten dinner (no meat), but followed the recipe otherwise. This was so simple to make and had so much flavor that we really didn't even miss the chicken, but I will add it to try next time. My mac and cheese hating son gobbled this up, but I knew he would b/c he LOVES anything 'buffalo'. This is a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

It was good but just a bit rich for us. Perhaps less of the cream cheese and sour cream mixture next time.

Haven't tried this yet, but it sounds good. You did fail to mention what to do with the macaroni. Do you mix it with the cheese mixture or put it in the pan and pour the cheese mixture over it before you bake it?

Very good. My wing eating boys loved it. It makes enough to feed a small football team too

This recipe was good! My daughter has been asking for Macaroni and cheese so I figured why not try this recipe it has her two favorite foods buffalo chicken and mac an cheese lol So it was a nice surprise for her for dinner this evening on her first day back to school! She liked it Alot! I thought it was ok I have zero complaints. My only changes were I did omit the breadcrumbs on top and I cubed up chicken breast. I will Probably make this again for my daughter if she requests it again!

I used a package of ground turkey, low fat condensed milk, low fat sour cream and no butter on the crumbs. Other than that, I kept the recipe the same and it was AWESOME!! it was easy to put together and it was delicious!

I omitted the noodles and bread crumbs and used a few cups of broccoli and asparagus instead, with thin sliced chicken breasts I already had grilled with garlic salt. I definitely needed to adjust the sauce measurements down. Without noodles and bread crumbs it's better to half everything for the sauce recipe and omit the milk. It's really delicious and I couldn't stop eating it straight out of the oven! I'll play around with the recipe again, but this was a good start for me for using up some cooked chicken.

Great if you love anything buffalo. The only thing I changed was the chicken. 3 boneless skinless chicken breast rubbed with a chicken season rub. Cooked until almost done. Then pulled the chicken and added it to the sauce mixture.
