Buffalo Chicken Penne

  1. In a large pot, prepare penne according to package directions.

  2. In a large bowl, add hot sauce, coconut oil, MCT oil, honey, apple cider vinegar, paprika, garlic and salt. Stir until well combined and a thick sauce forms.

  3. In a separate bowl, add chicken.

  4. Pour half of the sauce over the chicken and let marinate for a few minutes.

  5. Meanwhile, heat a frying pan with 1 tablespoon coconut oil.

  6. Add marinated chicken and heat until cooked through, about 8 minutes.

  7. Once done, drain pasta and return to large pot.

  8. Add chicken and remaining sauce. Stir to combine.


Make it vegan: Replace chicken with 1 large head of cauliflower. Bake the cauliflower at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes, or pan-fry it.

Make it cheezy: Add 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast to sauce mixture for a vegan-friendly cheeze sauce.
