Buffalo Chicken Macaroni and Cheese

Hubby was leaving for a few days on the ship so I surprised him with a special dinner.  I call it special because I haven’t been cooking dinner much lately.  And since it was an easy recipe to make, it’s extra special to me.  I also know if I want my husband to like something, all I have to do is add buffalo sauce and chicken to the recipe and he will love it.
