  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?

This recipe is amazing. Made it per recipe the first time. The next time I made it I was eating gluten free so used rice macaroni and also made my own hot sauce (1/2 c tapatio, 1/2 c butter , 1/2 c olive oil). I also added some celery. The gluten free version is just as good as the original. Thank you so much for this awesome recipe!!

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.

YUMMY!!!!! Try using a package of taco seasoning in place of ranch. This recipe is a huge hit at our house!!!

Wow made this for my family and it was voted a definite make again. I must have used a smaller dish then what it called for because I ended up with 2 baking dishes full. Awesome recipe!
