Buffalo Chicken and Potatoes

I am really, really, really tired of cooking the same meals. I have been on a quest this summer to find some recipes that I have never had before. 

I came across this one and though I’m not a big buffalo chicken girl, my fellows like hot stuff (which is why MM married me!) so I thought I would give it a try. 

I made some minor adjustments to my recipe. In other words, mine isn’t as spicy hot as their’s. I’m not crazy about spicy foods, says the one who loves fireballs. Go figure! 

Buffalo Chicken and Potatoes

Whatcha Need

  • 1 pound boneless chicken breasts, cubed 
  • 3-4 medium potatoes, cut in 1/2″ cubes
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1&1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp. black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. paprika
  • 2 Tbsp. garlic powder
  • 3 Tbsp. hot sauce
  • Topping:
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (pick your flavor)
  • 5 slices of crumbled bacon (which I was out of :( )
  • 1/2 cup diced  onion

Putting It All Together

Preheat oven to 375. 

In a mixing bowl pour in oil.

Worked just fine. Bake for 45 minutes. *TIP: cut the potatoes into smaller cubes and they don’t take as long to cook. Turn them about every 15 minutes. 

In the meantime…cut the chicken into small pieces.

Put them in the spicy mixture and let marinate while potatoes are cooking.

If you have bacon, now is the time to cook it. Also, chop the onions, and shred the cheese. 

When the potatoes are done, place the chicken on top of potatoes.

Put it back in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until chicken is done.

My youngest said it was really good. If I get a compliment from him, while he is eating it, you know it is good. 

Love ya,
