This sounds like such a good idea, but it doesn't work. I doctored it with all the tips from posters, and they definitely helped -- add thyme, more hot sauce, more bleu cheese, less milk -- but it's still very meh. It evoked wings just enough to make me want to go get some actual buffalo wings. Given these ingredients, you'd do better to broil a breast, top it with hot sauce and bleu cheese, and pair it with a salad. Lot quicker, too.
Buffalo Chicken Casserole
From EatingWell: September/October 2010
We took the classic flavors of Buffalo wings—hot sauce, blue cheese, carrots and celery—and created a finger-licking-good casserole. Serve this dish during football season to a hungry crowd and it’s sure to be a hit. We don’t typically recommend ingredients by brand name, but in this case we make an exception for Frank’s RedHot Sauce. It has the perfect balance of spice and tang for this casserole. Texas Pete and Crystal hot sauces are suitable alternatives if you can’t find Frank’s.

One word: fail. I'm really into clean eating, but I'd rather just go out for wings on an indulgence night or make them at home (use hot sauce and real butter with a bit of honey to make your own buffalo sauce and KNOW what's in it). Tried this recipe straight up and using the suggestions. Just unappetizing flavors and textures inside a casserole. Just make yourself truly happy once every few months and go out for wings.
I agree it lacked in taste. Would have to have a lot of add ons as suggested to be good. But then, it would be another recipe.
This was good and boyfriend loved it (but most men would!) As a caterer, I knew it would need more spice so I added 1 tsp poultry seasoning and 1 tbsp fresh thyme to the chicken veg mixture, together with 1 tsp more pepper an and dash more salt. 1 tbsp of dijon mustard would also be good. Doubled the amt of hot sauce and added several more ozs of blue cheese for finish, plus sprinkled with chopped celery leaves. It is a man-crowd pleaser.
I followed the recipe pretty much as written, with the exception of adding an extra tablespoon of Frank's hot sauce, and a little more blue cheese (about 7 oz as opposed to 4). My family loved it! I think next time I would maybe mix some blue cheese IN with the mixture rather than just sprinkle on top, and because we like Frank's so much, would maybe add a little extra of that, also. A definite keeper!
