Easy Buffalo Chicken Pasta Bake – Creamy and Delicious!

Easy Buffalo Chicken Pasta Bake

I love a good casserole.

Especially when it’s creamy, full of flavor, AND incredibly easy to make.

Fortunately for you, this easy buffalo chicken pasta bake has all three of those elements. And it’s so good.

It includes amazing ingredients, such as:

  • Moore’s Creamy Ranch Buffalo Sauce (you can use Ranch dressing and buffalo sauce if you can’t find this)
  • Alfredo Sauce
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Rotini Noodles
  • Diced Chicken breast

You might remember when we created this delicious buffalo chicken alfredo a few months ago for a Moore’s Marinade recipe contest. Well, they had another contest, so we decided to try and win this time!

Let me tell you, if this doesn’t win, then that contest has got to be rigged. It has an amazing buffalo flavor that isn’t overpowering or too spicy and when you combine it with the alfredo sauce and cheese, it’s even better.

I was going to bake this in an 8×8 glass baking dish…but I got a little lazy and just put our ovenproof pan in the oven. So this can easily be a one dish meal, or you can bake it in your baking dish. It’s up to you – I personally just like to minimize the number of dishes I have to clean 🙂

PS - while this is delicious, it is VERY rich. Just take one of these beforehand, though, and you should be good to go!

    • Hi, there! You could probably just buy any wing sauce - I really like Franks - and add maybe 1/2 packet of dry ranch dressing mix, which is usually on the top shelf near the liquid ranch dressing :)
  • Hi, I'm confused on the garlic is it garlic cloves, minced garlic, garlic salt. etc and how much to use I don't cook much so I don't really know much about cooking and I would really like to try this without messing up.
  • I made this yesterday and it was fabulous! We all loved it and know we'll be having it again, very soon! The only thing was on my part. I read the directions quickly and knew I had everything (or so I thought) on hand so I got all the ingredients out and started in. That is when I noticed it called for Creamy Ranch Buffalo Sauce and I thought it was just the usual Hot Sauce or Buffalo Sauce. I didn't have time to go to the store since the chicken and pasta were already cooking so I used Frank's Red Hot Sauce and mixed it with Original Ranch Dressing. It worked but next time I'll be sure to have the right stuff. As I said, it was a wonderful recipe and we loved it!! Thank you so much!

  • Id like to know where you can find Moores buffalo ranch sauce at (?) I tripled this recipe for football potluck and used the Franks wing sauce and packet of ranch dressing mix. It's heating now w/some rotisserie chicken pieces but it seems awfully strong on the wing sauce ( very orange) Hopefully the pasta will tone it down. May even add some sour cream. Sure the team will enjoy this new twist on their pasta feed night!

    • I think that is probably normal for the sauce to be a different color since you are using that combo. I'm curious though how it turns out! The alfredo should lighten it up. I hope the team loves it. This is one of our favorites. Here is a list of stores Moore's is sold at. I have seen it at Walmart and Kroger affiliates. http://mooresmarinade.com/Where-To-Buy.aspx
  • The price of this buffalo/ranch sauce is way too much and there has to be a good substitute for it .. I will for sure come up with something with a better price point. Have not tried the recipe yet but know that will be something I will change. Will try it for the grand kids soon... thanks, angela
    • Hi, Angela! It's only about $2.50 at Walmart. Definitely expensive if you buy on Amazon! There are some substitutes you can do. I know some people have put in ranch dressing and buffalo sauce. Others have done buffalo sauce with a ranch dressing packet. It's really up to you! I hope you enjoy it!
  • Guess I just noticed the price on amazon and thought someone had lost their mind... I just made the dish for tomorrow with the grand kids coming... it is very good and the seasoning makes it pop... I can't wait to hear the raves..LOL... guess I like to be praised ...but love to make things they really enjoy and this one is a winner as tasted it ...
