Want to wow the fam for dinner? Need a casserole to take to a potluck? Try this easy Buffalo Chicken Casserole!!
This is a great meal and it serves well leftover so I ALWAYS try and make some extra. Usually the extra disappears pretty quickly too though!!
Let’s go to the grocery:
1.5 lb chicken (either breast or breast tenderloins, 1 inch cubed, I’ve used both)
1/3 cup hot sauce
5 1/2 cups shredded frozen potatoes
1 can condensed chicken soup
1 cup ranch dressing
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Panko bread crumbs
Now let’s get cookin!!
Preheat oven to 375
Spray 13×9 (or 2 8×8) pans
Cube your chicken and put in a large bowl
Add 1/3 cup hot sauce and toss chicken in it
Spread into bottom of pan
In the same bowl add potatoes, chicken soup, ranch, and cheese and mix them all up (I also add a few dashes of hot sauce back into this mixture)
Spread over the chicken
Now sprinkle Panko bread crumbs over the top
Cover with foil
Bake 30 minutes then remove foil and bake another 25 minutes. (I low broil for about 4 minutes at the end too just to get a good color on top!)
Take out and let sit 15-20 minutes before serving!
Salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!!
I’d love to say refigerate leftovers and take them for your lunch but unless you do what I do and double or triple the recipe your unlikely to be so lucky!!!
Heres the recipe without the pics!
