Of course, you don’t “stumble” onto a hack like this by pure accident.

Let us give credit where credit is due! The Portage woman had been turning the idea of Buffalo chicken mac and cheese over in her head for a while before turning it into a reality.

Then again, we all know that this delectable dish with a kick of spice is nothing entirely new.

On the other hand, no one wants to stand and slave over making the perfect meal when they don’t have to, am I right?

Jenee sure seemed to be traveling along this same line of thinking, and that’s what makes her food hack so amazing – you don’t have to cook, bake, or boil anything at all!

How can that be? Because Jenee’s idea wasn’t to cook up the recipe herself but to throw it all together exclusively with fast-food ingredients.

More specifically, she had it in mind to use ONLY Chick-fil-A menu items.

When asked about how she came up with the idea, Jenee explained that, though she’d had the idea rolling through her mind for a while now, it wasn’t until the pandemic that she forced it into a reality.

“I’m a ‘foodie’ so I love foods that excite my taste buds. Since the pandemic, I haven’t been able to get to any restaurants that serve items like Buffalo mac and cheese so since I had the time I decided to finally do it,” she said.

When she did, she realized that the hack was meant to be!

While there isn’t a whole lot of good that’s come out of this whole pandemic (though there’s certainly been some) this mouthwatering food hack is most definitely an exception to that rule.

The idea and the execution of it are pretty darn simple, too, which is just the type of quality in a food hack that most of us busy-bees are looking for!

So, without further ado, we present to you Jenee’s Chick-fil-A food hack!


First thing’s first – get your grub ordered.

Buffalo chicken mac n’ cheese really couldn’t be any more simple than this. Here’s what you’ll order:

  • 3 piece chicken-strip meal
  • with a side of mac and cheese
  • one or two containers of their beautiful Buffalo sauce

Believe it or not, that’s really all you need to make this spicy, creamy, cheesy, chicken-y goodness come together.

Once you’ve got your order, simply tear your chicken strips up into bite-sized chunks and add to your side of mac and cheese. Then drizzle the Buffalo sauce over it to your heart’s content. One package or two, depending on your tolerance for spice, should do the trick just fine.

Finally, mix it all together and dig into this zingy bowl of heaven, and you’ll be a Chick-fil-A Buffalo chicken mac and cheese lover for life!

Of course, you don’t just have to take our word for it (or Jenee’s either, for that matter).


Ever since Jenee first shared her ultimate food hack back in April of this year, people have been blowing up social media with money shots of their version of her Buffalo chicken mac hack, and the results do not disappoint.

When she first posted about her brilliant fast-food hack, she was simply sharing an idea that turned out to be pretty damn good. However, she had no idea that it would blow up into a major food-hacking trend.

“I had no idea the post was going to get this much attention! I was shocked. I posted it and took a nap for work. When I woke up, it was at 4,000 shares. Now it’s up to 28,000 shares, and I’m still in disbelief,” she said.
