Buffalo chicken potato bake

November 22, 2014

If you don’t already know…I love spicy dishes! 🙂 And this one has one of the best foods possible, POTATOES!! Yes you can still eat potatoes on weight watchers, just in moderation. This dish was easy to make, but does require some time, however it is worth devoting the time too. You will think heaven just exploded in your mouth! 😉 Serves 6 at 6 WW freestyle smart points per serving.

6SP blue, 8SP green, 2SP purple/9pp per serving
  • 5-6 medium potatoes peeled and cut in 1inch pieces
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast (about 22-24oz) cut and cubed
  • 1T olive oil
  • 1t black pepper
  • 2t paprika
  • 2 garlic cloves, diced
  • ⅓ cup franks hot sauce
  • 2T water
  • 1 cup light shredded cheese, I used a mozza/cheddar blend
  • 3T bacon crumble
  • green onion
  1. Preheat oven to 375F
  2. Peel your potatoes and cut into 1 inch cubes. In a bowl mix your oil, spices, water, diced garlic and franks sauce. Add potatoes to bowl and mix well..
  3. Using a draining spoon, carefully spoon your potatoes into a sprayed 9x13 dish, you want to save as much of the remaining mixture for your chicken.
  4. Bake the potatoes for 60 minutes, turning every 10 minutes. While potatoes are cooking mix your cubed chicken into the rest of the mixture and coat well.
  5. When potatoes are done lower oven to 350F. Top potatoes with your uncooked chicken, add cheese, bacon and green onion.
  6. Return to oven and bake for 20 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked. Drizzle with some ranch dressing or garlic sauce. Makes 6 servings (1/6th of the dish)

    Your recipe states to bake the potatoes at 350, but then later says to turn the oven down to 350 when baking the chicken? Are the potatoes supposed to be cooked at 375? maybe?

    Can cauliflower be substituted for potatoes? Or half cauliflower/half potato?

      All I can say is give it a try, cauliflower may make it more watery though

    Great recipes! Just wondering what can be substituted for hot sauce that might be more mild?

      Hi Shannon, the good thing with hot sauce is there are usually no points in it, regular BBQ sauce will have points, you can try and find the sugar free bbq sauce, or use a little regular and water it down so its thin like franks

    This sounds wonderful?! I am all about the spicy buffalo! What kind of ranch or buffalo sauce do you use?

      I use Franks original, and at the time a low calorie ranch but now I have a zero point ranch dressing if you look in my “appetizer” section

    This is so delicious! I was nervous my kids wouldn’t like it or it would be too spicy for them but they both really liked it! Thank you!

    Thank-you!!!! This sooooo yummy!! I was paranoid about all the water/juice from the chicken making the potatoes soggy. I baked the potatoes for 30 minutes and the added a separate pan to the oven with the chicken for 20 minutes and then put it all together with bacon and cheese and baked the final 10 minutes.
