  • Mix chicken, hot sauce, and ranch dressing together in a bowl until coated; set aside for flavors to blend.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes. Drain and transfer back to the pot. Stir margarine, milk, and cheese powder into pasta until sauce is smooth.

  • Pour half of the macaroni and cheese into an 8-inch square casserole dish; top with chicken mixture, celery, and blue cheese. Spread remaining macaroni and cheese on top of blue cheese layer.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is warmed and casserole is bubbling, about 15 minutes.
