Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup finely diced onion
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 lb uncooked pasta corkscrew or Gemelli
  • 1 cup low fat milk
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup buffalo sauce
  • 5 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese dressing

Instructions
  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.

  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

  3. Add the chicken to the skillet and cook until golden brown on all sides. Transfer the chicken to a plate and keep warm.
