As the Superbowl approaches us this weekend, there are lots of parties going on.  If you’re hosting one, I’ll bet your thinking of what to make.  Well I hope this dish helps you out.  I took the famous Buffalo Chicken wing recipe and turned it into a meal, that’s super easy and fast to make.

Ingredients:

6 Boneless Chicken Breast, cut into strips or cubes

Salt & Pepper

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 cup of Ranch Dressing (or Blue Cheese)

1/2 Cup of Green Onions, Chopped

1/2 cup of Franks Red Buffalo Sauce

1 lb of Penne Whole Wheat Pasta (or regular Penne)

1/4 cup of Blue Cheese Crumbles for garnish (optional)

Preparation:

Bring a Large pot of water to a boil, salt and add Penne.  Cook until Al Dente (This means that it should be firm, but not hard, and should take about 5 minutes depending on the brand).

Clean, Cut chicken into strips or cubes, season with salt and pepper.  Add Olive oil to a skillet on Medium heat.  Add chicken and cook until nice and golden.  Should take about 6 to 8 minutes.  Add Ranch dressing and Buffalo Sauce, cook for about 2 minutes or until begins to bubble.  After that add penne and green onions right into the skillet and mix everything together.  Plate on to a nice dish and add blue cheese crumbles.  If you would like you can place this on a baking dish and bake for about 10 minutes.  Once done place on table and let the enjoyment begin.
