How to make Buffalo chicken mac and cheese with Multo™ by CookingPal®?
1. Steam chicken.
Multo™ comes with deep and shallow streaming trays. Where the shallow trays are great for steaming vegetables, for this step use the deep steaming trays as they are perfect for steaming your chicken and other proteins.
2. Cook the macaroni.
After the steamer is attached, use the simmering basket to cook your macaroni. This will prevent the macaroni pieces from being broken by the blade. You will finish cooking this meal quickly thanks to Multo™’s ability to steam chicken and cook macaroni at the same time on different levels.
3. Cook sauce.
Add the remaining ingredients and cook them while the blade rotates to release all of the fragrant spices and to create a smooth sauce.
4. Mix together and enjoy!
Mix everything together for your delicious meal!
Cooking tips and tricks
This recipe can be made vegan by simply changing a few ingredients. Replace chicken broth with vegetable broth and use vegan Parmesan cheese in place of the regular variety. For adventurous chefs, check out our Smart Kitchen Hub for a recipe on how to make homemade vegan Parmesan cheese!
Need a shortcut for the chicken? You can use already-cooked, shredded rotisserie chicken in its place. It is seasoned nicely and shreds beautifully for mac and cheese recipes.
Macaroni can be substituted for different pasta shapes if needed, but try to choose a shape that has shape, ridges, and texture for the sauce to stick to. Great substitutions are farfalle, rotini, ziti, and penne.
What are the variations of the buffalo mac and cheese?
Cheddar and American cheese are recommended for this dish, but you can add different cheeses based on personal preference and flavor preferences. Gouda, Brie, and Gruyère cheese will bring added richness to the dish. Cream cheese is a good mix-in for added creaminess, and sprinkled Parmesan cheese will add a sharp saltiness.
Buffalo wing sauce comes in many flavors, so choose one of your likings - they all work well in this dish but can add more spice or sweetness depending on the type of sauce used.
