AWARD WINNING BUFFALO CHICKEN POTATO CASSEROLE — Cheesy diced potatoes combine with hot and spicy chicken in this heartwarming casserole.
You know that potato casserole with the cream of chicken soup, sour cream and cheese? Maybe you call it “cheesy potatoes” or “potato casserole.”
Where I come from they call it “funeral potatoes.” Don’t ask.
I found this recipe a few months ago and we have made it about once a week since. Sometimes twice a week! We absolutely love it!
I even switched it up one week and made it with honey bbq instead and it was so good! This is definitely one I’m going to pass on! ~ Victoria
Anyway, this Buffalo Chicken Potato Casserole is basically a kicked up version of that casserole. And yes, it’s full of all kinds of processed food and fattening ingredients. Don’t judge.
Or go right ahead and judge if you’d like. That won’t stop me and the rest of my family from eating this delicious, slightly spicy, satisfying meal!
This is serious comfort food–cheesy, creamy, and crunchy, with a little bit of kick. This hearty, satisfying casserole is part of our regular dinner rotation and there are never any leftovers!
I even won a funeral potatoes recipe contest with this recipe. True story!
And did I mention, this casserole is super easy to make? Simple and delicious. What more could you ask for in your comfort food? This cheesy Buffalo chicken is a real winner–literally!
