Buffalo Chicken Spaghetti

Last night I went out to have ice cream with Clare and got a frantic phone call from Jeffrey that our bathroom almost caught on fire! We had no idea this heater even worked, I actually forgot it was there because our wicker drawers are in front of it. Somehow the switch must have been turned on when one of us banged into the drawers. The Lord really gave us a miracle! Jeffrey said he would not have caught it if his workout buddy had not called and pushed their workout 30 minutes later. I am sure that with all the flammable materials inside these drawers, plus the towels we keep on top, it would have been in flames if left for 10 more minutes. Thank you Jesus for sparing us from this disaster!!

You know how much I love Buffalo Wings!! When I saw this pasta on Let's Dish cooking blog, I was so excited to try it. I was not expecting it to be as good as it actually was. After eating it for dinner I was ready to make it again for lunch the next day, haha!!

Buffalo Chicken Spaghetti
1/2 pound spaghetti
3 Chicken tenders
1 cup chicken broth
4 oz cream cheese
3 Tbsp Franks Red Hot
1/2 cup blue cheese dressing (I am sure you could use Ranch if you prefer that with your wings)
salt and pepper
2 green onions
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Cook pasta according to directions.
salt and pepper chicken tenders
cook on grill pan until done, remove and set aside to cool
In a sauce pan, heat chicken broth, hot sauce and cream cheese.
Stir until blended.
I used a whisk at the very end to really mix the cheese into the sauce.
Pour blue cheese dressing into sauce. Stir. Season sauce with salt and pepper.
Cut chicken into cubes. Chop green onions.
Drain pasta and add to sauce.
Also add chicken.
Serve pasta with a topping of cheddar cheese and green onions.

Dear Shelbi- I am by no means "a cook" (like, not even a little bit) BUT ...I can confirm with confidence that combining my two loves -pasta and Frank's red hot sauce- into one glorious dish is pure genius! Also, you will be happy to know that thanks to this blog, I am officially going to cook my first meal EVER for my roommates (who, by the way, are equally obsessed with Frank). When i publically announced this news to my roomates, they were extatic (to say the least) Ps- LOVE that you add pics bc lord knows I need all the help i can get in the kitchen.
