Lightened Up Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese
This Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese is crazy creamy without any heavy cream or butter (but with a secret ingredient instead!), and is so bursting with flavor you will be licking your plate! And you can completely customize the heat!
*If starting with raw chicken (1 pound/2 chicken breasts), this is how I cook mine: Heat one tablespoon olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Once very hot, add chicken and cook, undisturbed for 3-5 minutes, or until browned on one side. Flip chicken over, cover, and reduce heat to medium. Cook for approximately 5-7 more minutes (depending on thickness of chicken), or until chicken is cooked through. Remove to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes before chopping into bite size pieces.
**3 tablespoons is average heat, 4 is if you like things a little spicy (this is what I use) and 5 is for the very spicy lover.
