Final Word: Buffalo Chicken Pasta

This recipe has ingredients that don’t have to cost a lot. Some of them you can use coupons on to save you more money. The pasta is always on sale. I get mine when the grocery store has them on sale for the BOGO deals. But I then use my coupons on them which makes them both free or for cents. I do the same with the shredded cheeses. Look for when the hot sauce and ranch dressing are on sale.  There are always coupons for these products.

The chicken breast I try to buy when it is on sale, then I separate them and freeze them individually. I take out of the freezer the amount I need for the recipe. Sometimes there is a coupon to use on chicken. I have also used a store coupon like a $10.00 off $50.00 coupon. I then apply that savings to my chicken and other meats.

It seems these days that the Buffalo Chicken recipes are quite popular. They always seem to be a hit at meal time and parties.
