I am soooo happy that I ran across this recipe this morning. I made this for hubby and I, for a late lunch today. The only way I can describe this recipe is "Tator Tot & Chicken Nugget" got married in a bucket of hot sauce!!! I used the ingredients listed (except the blue cheese), but found it necessary to switch it up a bit. I only had two boneless, skinless chicken breasts thawed (which was plenty for us). I started marinating the chicken in homemade hot sauce as soon as I found this recipe, and thawed the hash-browns (I used approx 2 cups). I tried to dredge one strip in the potatoes, but they didn't seem to stick well. So the chicken went back into the marinade, potatoes went into the food processor for two or three pulses, then I wrung them out in a cotton dish towel. I spread the potatoes back into the casserole dish and let sit a bit. I tried dredging again, and the chicken was coated perfectly! I placed them on a parchment paper lined sheet pan, and cooked as directed. (I forgot to mention... I only sliced one breast into strips, the other I made into chicken nuggets). When they were almost cooked thru (about 20 minutes), I dipped them again into the hot sauce, returned them to the oven and cooked a few more minutes (I didn't want hubby to be dipping/dripping hot sauce over our beige carpeting). We do not like blue cheese, so I skipped that portion of this recipe. I served the chicken strips and nuggets with baby carrot sticks and some pre-packaged Ranch dressing cups (those little things are great to pack in a "to-go" lunch). Thank you for posting such a clever recipe. I will make this again. (Made for "Zarr Chef Alphabet Soup" tag game).
