Buffalo Chicken Fettuccine. Lazy, dazy comfort food days.

Buffalo Chicken Fettuccine

I’ve told you before about how my guy (I call him G-Dawg, because we’re gangstas like that) makes appearances here on the blog as a pretty good hand model, a stellar dish washer and super cute sous chef who can dice an onion so precisely it puts Bobby Flay to shame. But his real talent is in front of the stove creating crazy mash-ups of our favorite foods. And this Buffalo Chicken Fettuccine is sure to be one that will go down as one of his masterpieces. The recipe is inspired by three of our favorite food groups: pasta, chicken and hot sauce.

G-Dawg creates his signature buffalo chicken wings, which are really drumsticks doused with blackening spices, with the intent that there will be plenty of finger-licking and lots of heat.
