This recipe is easy to make since you use a boxed macaroni.  The recipe calls for Kraft Homestyle Mac ‘n Cheese which has a liquid cheese sauce.   The buffalo chicken adds a good amount of heat and the crumble topping is buttery and delicious.
Buffalo Chicken Mac n Cheese is a delicious baked one dish meal!
Everything is mixed together and then baked up in the oven.   I like making this as an easy one pot dinner but it is also great as a side dish.
