Rachael Ray's Buffalo Chicken Potato Casserole

Julie Madawi Recipe

By Julie Madawi Julie_Madawi

Just so happened to catch this on a website and can't wait to share it! This looked soo yummy on the video, with a creamy "hot wing" flavored sauce, chicken and thinly sliced potatoes. So easy!

The hot sauce mellows out quite a bit while cooking, so if you like it a little bit more on the mild side (like I do) you shouldn't have a problem. Add more heat with a spicier hot sauce if you like.

I definitely would serve this with some green onion slices for garnish, and a side of celery and blue cheese dip,along with a nice green salad and crusty bread. Wouldn't that be "Yummo"? Lol!
