If you'd like to add blue cheese to this dish, sprinkle it over the top of the casserole in place of the cheddar. Alternately, stir it in with the cheese sauce. Blue cheese dressing would be great drizzled over the top in place of ranch dressing as well.
Frank's Red Hot Sauce
grated cheddar cheese
grated mozzarella cheese
dry ranch seasoning powder
Panko bread crumbs
chopped green onions
for drizzling over the top
Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook macaroni according to package directions. Drain and set aside in a large mixing bowl.
While the macaroni is cooking, melt the butter in a medium sauce pan over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and cook for 2 minutes.
Slowly add the milk and hot sauce, whisking constantly. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, for about 5 minutes or until the sauce has thickened. Remove from heat.
Stir in 1 cup of the cheddar cheese and all of the mozzarella cheese. Stir until the cheese melts.
Pour the cheese sauce over the macaroni.
Add the chicken and ranch powder to the cheese sauce and macaroni and stir well to combine.
Pour macaroni and cheese into a 9x13 baking dish. Sprinkle the remaining cheddar over the top. Sprinkle on the panko.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with green onions.
Serve immediately with ranch dressing and extra hot sauce, if desired.
