Buffalo Chicken Ranch Pasta

Hey Everyone.

So, today I want to share with you a recipe I found online and Love!  However I changed it up to suite my family's needs.  Here is the link to the Original recipe.

. Here is Mine .


1 Box of penne pasta
1 Bag of Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips 
7 stalks of celery, diced
2 carrot stalks, diced
1/2 cup Frank’s buffalo wing sauce
1 cup of Walmart's Light buttermilk ranch dressing
2 tsp. onion powder


  1. In a large pot, bring water to a boil and cook pasta according to the package instructions and drain well when done.
  2. In the meantime, cook your chicken strips in the oven according to the directions on the bag. ( I cooked mine @ 400 for 19 Minutes )
  3. While the chicken is baking, combine Buffalo sauce, ranch dressing, and onion powder in a small bowl and set aside.
  4. Once chicken is done baking, remove from the oven and set aside on a cutting board. In the same pot as the pasta, throw in the celery and carrot and cook until tender. ( I used 1/4 cup of butter to sauté the veggies. )  While that is simmering, Chop up the chicken.  Then place the chicken back in the pot along with the sauce mixture.
  5. Let sauce simmer for 3-4 minutes then stir until well coated and all is combined.  Once done, grab some pasta and place on a plate with the Sauce/chicken mixture on top.
  6. Serve hot and drizzle more ranch sauce on top.

There you have it!  It's so yummy.  Even "The Man" approves.  He says, (And I quote) "That is M F ing A Mazing!" - Letters and all. ;)  I served ours with some Pepperidge Farm 5 cheese crispy bread.  Enjoy!  And I hope you all try it out for your family.

Until next time… Keep Creating, Living, And Obsessing!

We also went to JoAnns so I could put a visual together so she could make a final decision on her color choice…. Up next is Making her Save the dates!  I can't wait to show you all what she has in mind.  They will be handmade. ;)  
Here is a look into the visual I laid out for Ashley. :)  This is all stuff we found at JoAnns.  We won't be using fake flowers, but I wanted her to see what her vision could look like. :)  Love that store.
