Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese

Hello everyone! So I stumbled upon a recipe last weekend and I wanted to try it but the amount of ingredients it called for was outrageous.  I live on a budget and I always try to think of ways to cook for less.  So I hit the fridge and the cabinets and I was able to tweak the recipe and it was a SUCCESS!!!

Some of you have heard about the recipe already so here it goes...


2-3 Boneless Chicken Breasts
2 tbsp Curry Powder
2 tbsp Garlic Powder
1 tbsp Black Pepper
1 tbsp Salt
cooking oil
frying pan

1/2 box of spiral noodles (rotini)
1/2 block of Velveeta Cheese (large block)
1/4 cup of milk
2 tbsp butter
1/4 cup Texas Pete hot sauce

Season chicken breasts with above seasonings. Coat them with flour and fry whole in frying pan with cooking oil (about 1 inch deep).  While chicken is cooking boil noodles in salted water.  When chicken is done allow to cool to retain juices.  Once chicken is cool cut in small pieces set aside.  Remove noodles from water and drain.  Place butter in pot that noodles were cooking in.  Cut cheese in blocks and add to pot with butter.  On low heat add milk and keep stirring unitl cheese has melted into a sauce.  Add hot sauce.

Place noodles in 8x8 baking pan add chicken.  Once well mixed pour cheese mix over and bake for 30 min.
