Ingredients

1/3 cups Buffalo sauce or Louisiana-style hot sauce

3 tbsp. butter, divided

3 tbsp. all-purpose flour

1 cup milk

1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1/2 cup cubed pepper jack cheese

3 cups macaroni, cooked and drained

1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs

1 green onion, finely chopped

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. Dice chicken strips.

Step 2

Toss chicken with hot sauce; set aside.

Step 3

Melt 2 tbsp. butter in a medium saucepan set over medium heat. Add flour and stir for 3 minutes or until browned. Whisk in the milk, a splash at a time, until very smooth.

Cook, stirring constantly for 5 minutes or until thick enough coat the back of a spoon. Remove from heat. Whisk in the shredded cheese, a bit at a time, until melted.

Step 5

Toss the sauce with the cooked macaroni, Buffalo chicken and cubed pepper jack cheese. Divide evenly between the muffin cups.

Step 6

Melt the remaining butter and toss with the fresh breadcrumbs and green onion. Sprinkle over each muffin cup. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden.
