I recently made a mouthwatering recipe that my family couldn't get enough of, and I couldn't resist sharing it with all of you here! Instead of writing a lengthy blog post about how I came up with the recipe, I'll get straight to the point and share the deliciousness with you. 😉

Introducing Buffalo Chicken Mac, a delectable combination of flavors that will leave you craving for more. Here's what you'll need:


  • 1/2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1lb (about 2-3) chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 5 stalks celery, finely chopped
  • 2 large cloves garlic, finely chopped or grated
  • 1/2 tbsp. smoked paprika
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2-4 tbsp. hot sauce or buffalo sauce, depending on your preference
  • 1/2 can (15 oz) crushed tomatoes
  • 120g whole wheat elbow macaroni, dry
  • 55g pepper jack cheese
  • 65g crumbled blue cheese or feta cheese
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced


  1. Boil the macaroni according to the package directions.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium/high heat and brown the chicken pieces for about 5-6 minutes.
  3. Add the chopped carrots, onion, celery, garlic, paprika, bay leaf, and salt and pepper. Cook the veggies until tender, stirring frequently, for about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Pour in the chicken broth and mix well.
  5. Add the hot sauce and crushed tomatoes, then bring the mixture to a simmer. Let it simmer for 8-10 minutes to thicken the sauce.
  6. Stir in the cooked pasta into the chicken mixture, and transfer the mixture into an 8x8 casserole dish.
  7. Sprinkle the pepper jack cheese over the top and place it under the broiler until the cheese has melted and the top turns golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.
  8. Finish off by topping it with sliced scallions.

Voila! Your Buffalo Chicken Mac is ready to be devoured. It's a cheesy, flavorful delight that will satisfy your cravings. Don't forget to let me know how it turns out when you give it a try!
