This Ranch Buffalo Pasta Bake is one of our favorite chicken casseroles! Rich and creamy, loaded with amazing Ranch Buffalo flavor and a little kick of spice! With very little prep, this meal is perfect for a weeknight and something the whole family can agree on!
What could be more yummy than a hot & bubbly casserole loaded with pasta, chicken, and cheese in a deliciously creamy buffalo ranch sauce. I agree… nothing!
I love buffalo flavor in dips, appetizers and even on side dishes! I always love a good ranch flavored pasta so when I saw that Hidden Valley® Ranch had a new Ranch Buffalo flavor, I knew this amazing pasta bake had to be created!
The best part about this meal (besides how easy it is) is that there’s so much flavor but it’s not overly spicy making this casserole perfectly family friendly!
I think pretty much everyone loves a good Ranch dressing since it’s so versatile! Perfect for salads and dipping veggies of course but also perfect for pasta salads & potato salads, marinating chicken breasts, appetizers and so much more.
Hidden Valley® has some amazing new flavors that you’re going to love creating with including Honey BBQ, Sriracha and Cilantro Lime! We found them at Walmart along with the other ingredients for this recipe, it’s the one stop shop making it easy to get everything I need. Plus right now you can grab a coupon to save $0.75 off any 12 oz or 16 oz bottle of Hidden Valley® Ranch at Walmart!
For the chicken in this recipe I either cook up a couple of chicken breasts or buy a rotisserie chicken. When taking the chicken from the rotisserie chicken I remove the skin and chop both the white and dark meat. I usually have enough for two full recipes and freeze half of the chicken for later!
