Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Prepare a roasting pan for the buffalo chicken pasta. Bring a large pot of salted water for the pasta. Cook the pasta to al dente according to the package’s directions. When the pasta is al dente, drain the pasta.

Step 2

Place the drained pasta in a roasting pan. 

Step 3

While the pasta is cooking, poach the chicken. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring the chicken broth and water to a boil.

Step 4

Poach the chopped chicken breasts in the broth mixture for about 5 minutes, until the pieces are just cooked.

Step 5

In a shallow bowl, add the buffalo sauce and the poached chicken. Toss to coat the chicken in the buffalo sauce.

Step 6

Transfer the coated chicken and the remaining sauce to the roasting pan with the pasta.

Step 7

Add the yogurt, green onions, chives and cheese to the roasting pan and toss thoroughly.  Season with the hot sauce to taste. 

Step 8

Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes, until the cheese has melted. Serve hot. Enjoy!
