Buffalo chicken isn't just for a game-day snack (although it would make the perfect dish at a football-watching party). The addition of panko bread crumbs gives this creamy Three Bridges mac and cheese recipe a delightful crunch, and the hot sauce provides a bit of heat. You'll need to fuel up anyway if you're going to challenge the boys in a friendly football game.
