Buffalo Chicken & Potato Casserole found at http://holycannolirecipes.blogspot.com

1 1/4 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch strips
1/3 c. Franks buffalo sauce
5c. potatoes, grated w/ box grater
1 c. light ranch dressing/ blue cheese
1/2 c. cheddar cheese, shredded
1 (10 oz) can condensed cream of chicken soup
1/2 c. panko

 Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
Grate potatoes and lay out and pat with a paper towel to try to get some of the moisture out.
In medium bowl, stir together chicken strips and buffalo sauce. Spoon into baking dish in a single layer.
In the same bowl, stir together potatoes, dressing, cheese and soup. Spread over chicken. Sprinkle panko evenly over the top.

Cover with foil. Bake 30 minutes; uncover and bake 20 to 25 minutes longer or until potatoes are tender and juice of chicken is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut.

This was a pretty tasty casserole.  It takes a bit to cook.  It was almost an hour and a half from start to finish so make sure you have plenty of time.  It’s definitely not a last minute throw together meal for the family.  I ran out of Frank’s so I had to use some Tapatio which added a bit more kick (or so my tongue says).  I used frozen hashbrowns, fat free ranch , 2% reduced fat shredded cheese and bread crumbs instead of panko since I had those on hand and I was trying to make it a little healthier.  If you want, you could do a pound and a half of chicken to make it heartier and add protein.  Overall it was very good and I will make it again. I shared a bite of my lunch with my friend Jill and she was a big fan.  I’m bringing her some of the leftovers tomorrow so two thumbs up from Jill and I.
