Busch Gardens Food & Wine Recipe: Buffalo Chicken with Creamy Bleu Cheese Mac

Our Food & Wine Festival is just around the corner with delicious culinary creations around every turn. This year, the Festival returns with all-new dishes, but some were brought back by popular demand like the buffalo chicken with creamy blue cheese mac.

We are sharing the recipe with you so you can make it in your very own kitchen. Full ingredient list and instructions below.




  • 12 oz. cooked pasta (gemelli or elbow)
  • 1 8 oz. seasoned, grilled and diced chicken breast
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup bleu cheese
  • 1/4 cup buffalo sauce
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)


  • In saucepan, combine heavy cream, parmesan cheese, bleu cheese and salt and pepper. Remove from heat just before it hits a boil.
  • Pour sauce mixture over cooked pasta and add the chicken.
  • Drizzle with buffalo sauce and serve.
