This flavorful Buffalo Chicken Potato Casserole comes together easily and is always a family favorite dinner recipe!
Hi, you guys! It’s Cyndi from My Kitchen Craze bringing you a tasty dinner recipe with buffalo chicken flavor you’ll love.
I have a confession to make: I have a hard time making dinner every night. In fact, I think I only make dinner maybe 3 nights a week. Don’t judge me, OK?
I love to cook and bake, but it’s a known fact that if my hubby comes home before I’ve started dinner, I won’t cook that night. I don’t know why, but once he steps through that door, I want to hang out with him and chat about his day. It’s like a timer goes off and says “OK, your time in the kitchen is over, Cyndi.” Silly, huh?
This is why I like to have easy recipes on the weeknights like this buffalo chicken casserole I can whip up quickly and pop in the oven.
It’s actually funny how busy I am, and I don’t work out of the house. I look up to women that work out of the home and manage a home. You’re seriously my idol.
Let me give you a little glimpse into one of my days when the kids are in school. Let’s pick Monday for instance:
- 7am- Drop my son off to school
- 9am – Drop my daughter off to school
- 9:30-1:30 – Eat breakfast, work on creating recipes, cooking/baking other recipes, taking pictures and/or videos of said recipe, social media, preparing for the next post/recipe, and other odds and ends for the blog
- 1:30-2:30 – Try to workout, then have a smoothie or lunch
- 2:30-3:30 – Pick up the kiddos from school
- 3:30-5:30 – This is the time I need to utilize to make dinner, but something always gets in the way like grocery shopping, baths, homework, and/or finishing up editing pictures for the next blog post. Also, this is normally the time the hubsters starts walking through that door.
- 5:30-8:00 – Son has soccer practice, so I try to get other grocery shopping done or just hang out with hubby and daughter while we wait.
- 8:00-10:00 – Coffee/dessert and unwinding time. Then it’s time to go to bed and do it all over again in the am.
There you have it. That’s my day in a nut shell. It’s not that crazy every day, but I’ve gotta tell you it sure feels like it!
If we want to eat in Monday thru Friday, then I HAVE to make something quick and easy. I love casseroles because you literally throw everything in a pan and bake it. 30-45 minutes later, voila! You have a gorgeous, delicious meal. This casserole is one of those meals. Super simple and delicious! Enjoy!

You know Cyndi you are way too critical of yourself. This casserole looks wonderful to me! I am pinning it. Chicken is our go meat these days and it can get ho-hum. This is a great recipe for the meal rotation. It is simple but all yum foods are there. I have to disagree with you about the way you describe your homemaking skills. You do work, but your job is in your home, and that makes everything extra hard.When you work is in your home the dividing line gets blurred.Not only do you do the work for this job, you are maintaining a home with all its many challenges. You are chauffer for the kids and work around everybody’s schedules. In between, you are working on recipes, maintaining this blog and everything that goes along with it.Spending time with your husband is not a crime.THAT is why you married him.Today’s families live way too fast, They are too fast-paced.So you don’t get dinner on every night at five o’clock.I’m sure take – out with your family is as good or better than homemade.Because you are together enjoying each other.You have your priorities on the important things. Don’t worry about the little things. As I read your schedule I got tired! Keep spending that time with the hubby and enjoy your wonderful life.Things have a way of working out. Enjoy your beautiful crazy life.You are doing great!! Best wishes. Barb Karr
