Buffalo Chicken Pasta Salad


We do a lot of entertaining around here, whether it be a summer barbecue, holiday get together or party for the big game. Whatever the occasion, our buffalo chicken pasta salad is always a hit. It’s got a great buffalo sauce that’s spicy without being overbearing, and it’s cut with just the right amount of sour cream to cool it down.

We like to use leftover chicken for this recipe, but rotisserie chicken from the supermarket works great, too. Pre-cooked chicken makes this recipe super simple. Only 20 minutes to make it, start to finish! Pair this yummy salad with some celery sticks and crumbled blue cheese for the true buffalo chicken experience.
