Guy Stuff: BBQ Buffalo Chicken Lasagna

Posted on Monday, September 22, 2014 in Guy Stuff

IMG_5428

OK ladies and gents, time for a new recipe! Guy stuff makes a return by popular demand :) This time it’s a VERY filling meal for any buffalo chicken wing lovers out there. This is cheap and easy to make, barely any prep it just takes time. Time to enjoy a beer and cigar! Obviously I’m using the BBQ but you could do this all on the stove and in the oven just as well. But that wouldn’t be as manly! I made a big family portion that serves at least 10. You can cut everything in 1/2 and use a smaller pan.

2 whole chickens
16 oz Cream cheese
2 large buffalo chicken Franks sauce
1/2 stick butter
1 Package of lasagna noodles
1 White onion
2-4 cloves minced garlic (to taste)
2 bottles of good Blue Cheese dressing/dip
1-2 lbs. mozzarella cheese
