Casserole Season is Back!
The cooler weather has finally started to come back into our area, which means that casserole season is back! I love casseroles they just make life easier! Casseroles are typically easy to make ahead of time, which means I can make it before work and then bake it when we get home. They also are typically freezer-friendly, which means I can make multiple dishes and freeze what we don’t use.
My favorite part of casseroles is that they are usually a dump-and-go type of recipe. This means I can dump or layer all the ingredients in one dish and bake away!
What do you need for this Buffalo Chicken Casserole
This recipe is a dump-and-go recipe. Although the ingredient list looks long, don’t be fooled! All you need to do is layer all the ingredients, mix the sauce, and pour it on. It’s the perfect blend of spice that most kids will probably like it too! My toddlers don’t like a lot of spice and they gobbled this up like it was candy!
- 1 pound cooked and diced chicken
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 4 ounces softened goat cheese
- 1/4 cup hot sauce
- 1/4 cup whipping cream
- 1 12 ounce bag broccoli florets (frozen)
- 1 10 ounces bag riced cauliflower (frozen)
- 1 10 ounces bag of spinach (frozen)
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- Shredded Gruyere cheese for topping (optional)
Why Goat Cheese?
Can I tell you the honest truth on this? It was because I didn’t have cream cheese! I tried it and it changed the entire flavor of the dish. So much so, that I created the recipe specifically because of the flavor that the goat cheese added. After I made it for some guests and had multiple people ask for the recipe, I knew this one was a winner.
You certainly could substitute cream cheese for the goat cheese, but you would be missing out on what this Buffalo Chicken Casserole has to offer. You’re going to want to find that goat cheese, it’s that delicious!
How much Hot Sauce do I use?
For this recipe, I recommend Franks Red Hot sauce. I find that it has the most ‘family friendly’ taste out of all the hot sauces out there. My kids truly did gobble this dish up and they don’t particularly like things too spicy. If your family does like hot sauce, you can go up to a cup of hot sauce in this recipe. It will change the consistency a little bit, but not enough that you will need to adjust any other ingredient amounts.
Did you know that Amazon sells Franks Red Hot Sauce in a bulk container!?
