Ingredients List

To get started, gather the following ingredients:

  • 1 pound of chicken breasts, diced
  • 1 cup of buffalo sauce
  • 1 can of cream of chicken soup (10.5 oz)
  • 2 cups of shredded cheese (divided)
  • Optional toppings: ranch dressing, green onions

Preparation Steps

Step 1: Preheat the Oven

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) to ensure it’s ready for baking.

Step 2: Cook the Rice

Cook the rice according to the package instructions and set it aside once done.

Step 3: Cook the Chicken

In a large skillet, cook the diced chicken over medium heat until it is no longer pink. This should take about 5-7 minutes.

Step 4: Combine Ingredients

Add buffalo sauce, cream of chicken soup, and half of the shredded cheese to the skillet with the cooked chicken. Stir well to combine all the ingredients.

Step 5: Assemble the Casserole

In a 9x13-inch baking dish, spread the cooked rice evenly across the bottom. Pour the chicken mixture over the rice, spreading it out to cover all the rice. Top the mixture with the remaining shredded cheese.

Baking Instructions

Cover the baking dish with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, remove the foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until the cheese is golden and bubbly.
