Buffalo Chicken Sauce
In a food processor, combine your cooked chicken and extra buffalo chicken sauce.
Pulse until the chicken is soft and fills 2 cups.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the chicken and buffalo sauce from the food processor along with your blue cheese, cream cheese, and Greek yogurt.
Mix well and then place into a 9x9-inch baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes.
When the “dip” part of the dish is done, remove from the baking dish and combine with pasta in a large mixing bowl.
Stir together well and serve topped with green onion slices.
