This was so good and so easy to make. Only thing id change is i added a bit more hot sauce and a little more shredded cheese because I love cheese. Either way is was great and so simple!

Loved this recipe! I would say this recipe was a good outline... I doubled the amount of chicken, (there didn't seem like there was enough, in my opinion). I also added more buffalo wing sauce before I baked it because I couldn't taste it... I would say I added 2/3 cup, instead of 1/2. I didn't use shredded cheese, I just used the whole 16 oz. block of velveeta. I added the chicken to the cheese sauce. I also used evaporated milk with equal parts water instead of milk... I would say I used about a cup and a half of the milk mixture.... I mixed the cheese sauce and the cooked noodles in the pot I used to cook the noodles instead of mixing it in the casserole dish. My last revision was adding shredded mozzarella to the top before baking and it crunched up very nicely (I like my mac and cheese crunchy on the top and creamy underneath). My version was creamy and had a very delicious, spicy bite to it!

Made this for a family function and everyone loved it! It was a bit spicy for me so I used a little less Frank's the next time. I now have frequent requests to make this!

Made this last night and it is delicious! BUT next time I make it,it will be with all real cheese,no Velveeta. I will also use with fresh chicken, no canned next time! But I love it! It is easy and fast too!
