I was in Kroger the other day and saw them preparing this dish and it was delicious. It’s called Buffalo Chicken Casserole and combines some of my favorite things. Buffalo chicken and loaded potatoes. The best thing about the Publix Aprons meals is that they are super easy and quick to prepare. Only 15 minute prep time and then 45 minutes to cook. My roommates loved this one and so did I.
1 bag baby gold potatoes (24–28 oz), halved
1/2 cup Buffalo wing sauce, divided
6 slices precooked bacon, coarsely chopped
1 3/4 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 1/2 cups shredded Mexican-blend cheese
1/2 cup french-fried onions
1/2 cup presliced green onions
1/2 cup ranch dressing
- Preheat oven to 450°F. Halve potatoes; place in microwave-safe bowl and cover. Microwave potatoes on HIGH 8 minutes.
- Drain potatoes, then toss with 1/4 cup wing sauce; transfer mixture to 13- x 9-inch baking dish. Bake 20–25 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender, stirring once halfway through bake time. Meanwhile, chop bacon. Cut chicken into 1/2-inch cubes (wash hands).
- Reduce heat to 400°F. Combine chicken with remaining 1/4 cup wing sauce, then stir into potatoes.
- Combine remaining ingredients (including bacon); top potatoes with mixture. Bake 15–18 more minutes or until center of casserole is 165°F. Let stand 5 minutes to cool. Serve. (Makes 6 servings.)
