1 pound medium pasta shells
½ cup hot sauce
½ cup butter
8 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese
2 cups low-fat milk
1 pound grilled chicken breasts, diced
2 cups panko or bread crumbs
8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil; cook pasta for 2 minutes less than package specifies. Drain and set aside.
To a large sauce pan over medium heat, add hot sauce, butter, cream cheese and milk and stir until everything is combined and smooth. Add pasta and chicken to mixture and stir until uniform.
Add half of the mixture to a large casserole dish and sprinkle with half the cheddar cheese; top with remaining pasta and finish with the rest of the cheddar cheese. Cover with foil and bake 15 minutes.
Sprinkle panko or bread crumbs and return to oven, uncovered, 15 minutes more.
