Crazy Addicting Buffalo Chicken Pasta

Earlier this week I had a serious craving for Buffalo chicken with a little comfort food tied into it. As We all need a little cheat now and then, right?  And this one is completely (and I mean TOTALLY) worth the splurge.

Delicious, rich, addicting, cheesy, creamy and just the right amount of spicy…. Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Pasta. In the crockpot. Almost every step is done in your slow Cooker. Isn’t that nice? You hardly have to do anything! Have I convinced you yet?

I usually don’t indulge in any pasta too often. So this recipe was indeed a real treat. But when I do indulge I always try to get a small serving size with a vegetable or a side salad. However, I confess that I didn’t do it this time. Haha! I stuffed my face with this tasty, cheesy, gooey pasta. And then I got extremely excited about the idea of sharing it with all of my readers.

Some of you know that I’m a big fan of anything buffalo chicken. I’ve stated that once or twice (or a billion times) that it’s only been a few years that I found the excellent spicy flavor and now I can’t seem to control myself.I hope you don’t mind. But I think I could eat it every day. Just kidding!

This pasta dish would make a great dinner for a busy weeknight or the weekend with a good movie with your family or friends.

Birthday celebration and Buffalo Chicken

I had a real nice and relaxing birthday celebration with my family. We didn’t do anything except for eating. We consumed Chick-fil-A and Torchy’s Tacos and for dessert cupcakes

I am going to be sharing with you Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Wings as I promised. I too had intended to make cucumber salad but I unfortunately didn’t have any cucumbers. Yes, I realized that I could have made a trip to the grocery store but I didn’t feel like it. Do you feel that way too sometimes?

So I decided to make the salad next week instead.

I want say Thank You so very much for your patience with me and the fact that I have not been blogging as much as I usually do.

Anyway, I made a few changes to this crockpot recipe. The first thing I did was to use thighs that I had stored in freezer because I didn’t have any wings. Then I made a change to the liquid. My choice was to use vegetable broth instead of beer because I didn’t have any in my pantry.

Since I made a change to the liquid I actually became nervous about how this recipe was going to turn out. But to my surprise the taste of the chicken went above and beyond my expectations. It was incredibly moist and juicy. Not to mention that it wasn’t to overwhelming spicy.

Do you love Wings and want a super easy way to satisfy your craving without the hassle of cooking them and sweating in your hot kitchen? Well how about you give these Crock Pot Buffalo Chicken Wings a try. You will not be disappointed!

Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Wings

Ingredients

12-14 whole chicken wings or thighs1¼ c Frank’s Hot Sauce (or favorite hot sauce), divided

1¼ c butter, divided

1 C Chicken or vegetable broth

Directions

1. Cut chicken in half. Place chicken in crock pot. In a medium saucepan melt one cup of butter and add one cup of hot sauce and stir until completely combined. Stir one cup of broth into sauce. Pour the sauce over the chicken. Cover and cook on LOW for six-seven hours or HIGH for three-four hours.

2. Turn on your broiler. Melt ¼ cup butter into ¼ cup hot sauce and stir until well combined. Spread wings out evenly on a broiler pan and coat generously with sauce

3. Place wings in broiler for four-five minutes, checking constantly so they don’t burn.

Having fun doing what I love 

This week I made four cooking videos. It was a little crazy. But I had so much fun! The first video is how to prepare cold brew coffee. The second is How to cut broccoli into florets. The third is how to peel and slice a carrot. I occasionally will be posting videos on how to cut/slice vegetables.

The fourth is on this honey garlic chicken stir fry. That’s what I am sharing with you today. I have included the video that I made about this recipe near the end of this post. I will do my best to make and post at least two videos a week on my blog in regards to the certain recipes that I cook.

Now onto the recipe

This honey garlic chicken stir fry recipe is chicken and vegetables, cooked to perfection and tossed in a sweet and incredibly tasty sauce.

Directions

1. Heat one teaspoon of oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add the broccoli and carrots and cook for approximately four minutes or until vegetables are tender.
 Remove the vegetables from the pan; place them on a plate and cover.

2. Wipe the pan clean with a paper towel and turn the heat to high. 

Pour the remaining tablespoon of oil.

 Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper and add them to the pan in a single layer – you may need to do this step in batches. Cook for three-four minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through.

3. Add the garlic to the pan and cook for thirty seconds.
Add the vegetables back to the pan and cook for two more minutes or until the vegetables are warmed through.

 In a small bowl whisk together the chicken broth, honey and soy sauce. 

In another bowl mix the cornstarch with a tablespoon of cold water.

 Combine the soy sauce mixture to the chicken and vegetables; cook for thirty seconds.

4. Add the cornstarch/flour and bring to a boil; cook for one more minute or until sauce has just started to thicken.

 Serve immediately, with rice if desired.
