We go to a lot of potluck type of get-togethers. This is one of my "stock" recipes that I get asked to bring all the time.
I tend to make it on the mild side when I take it to a potluck so it appeals to more people . When I make it at home I like to kick-up the heat a little.
This is a large recipe and can be halved.

How to Make Buffalo Chicken Pasta Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook diced chicken in a little oil & hot sauce (optional).
    Drain and set aside to cool.
    If you use the Tyson Buffalo Chicken Chunks simply heat them in the microwave according to the directions and dice.

    * Keep a pair of kitchen scissors that are used exclusively for cutting-up chicken. Much easier than using a knife.
  2. Cook Pasta, rinse and drain. Add to chicken.
  3. Add bacon, cheese, tomatoes, dressing & hot sauce or cajun seasoning. You can add more or less of the dressing and hot sauce to get the right intensity for you.
  4. Mix and Chill.
