Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Shells Recipe
The football snack favorite flavor of Buffalo-style chicken doesn't have to come in the form of wings. Try this recipe with seasoned ground chicken stuffed into pasta shells.
As we live an hour from Buffalo on the PA border, I love the idea of another Buffalo chicken recipe. I am not a fan on ground chicken, but it wasn't awful. Shredded boneless, skinless breast will be a good alternative for next time. The filling made enough for the entire box of shells and I used the Frank's buttery wing sauce as it's closer to actual "wing flavoring". I was concerned the shells would be crunchy without sauce coverage, so I brushed a touch of the sauce of the edges of each shell. I see in other reviews it wasn't necessary, but we like spicier food, so the additional sauce was welcome! I used Mozzarella as I was out of the Monterey Jack; I suppose any cheese would suffice depending on your preference. Overall, a good recipe to make again.
This was ok. Not that flavorful. A good idea in theory but needs "more". I did boil chicken breasts, shredded them, and then mixed them in with the buffalo sauce and ricotta. I also put some of the shredded cheese, like 1/2 cup in the buffalo mix. I then put cheese on top and brushed The filled shells with light blue cheese dressing. Still fairly bland. It's missing the creaminess of the buffalo chicken dip or something. I'd either add some cream cheese, ranch seasoning, or SOMETHING else into this that goes in buffalo chicken dip to make it flavorful and more creamy.
This became an instant favorite. Per someone else's suggestion I added spinach so I can say its healthy. Also, for me at least, stuffing the shells was a pain, so in the future I just mixed the chicken with al dente rigatoni before topping with cheese and made more of a buffalo chicken baked ziti.
The only think I changed was adding some spinach! It was amazing!!

This easy-to-make appetizer has all the flavor of hot and spicy Buffalo wings in a delicious dip.
