Buffalo Chicken and Rice Casserole

Recipe by thedixongang

Made this for a quick, inexpensive weeknight dinner. Don't have time for the wings before Monday Night Football? Try this! You can sub any kind of cream soup you have on hand, or use any kind of chicken except canned. The flavor of canned just isn't as good! Great way to use leftover chicken or rice as well. Add as much hot sauce (FRANK'S) & ranch or bleu cheese as you like.

This is so easy to whip up and so good!! I used Minute Rice (ran out of other) and added 2cups instead of one. Made with Frank's Sweet Heat sauce that is more BBQ-y and less heat and drizzled ranch dressing on it. DH and I could not stop eating it! Going into my Best of cookbook. Made for PAC Fall 2011.
