How to make Buffalo Chicken Sweet Potato Casserole
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 425 degrees F.
Step 2: Ready a 9 x 13-inch casserole dish. Grease and set aside.
Step 3: Slice the chicken, potatoes, and broccoli into smaller pieces.
Step 4: Combine the buffalo sauce, avocado oil, salt, pepper, and garlic in a small bowl.
Step 5: Place the sweet potatoes and half of the buffalo sauce mixture in a large bowl. Mix well.
Step 6: Into the casserole dish, pour the sweet potatoes. Roast for about 30 minutes and flip halfway through cooking.
Step 7: To the bowl with the sweet potatoes, add the chicken and broccoli. Toss with the rest of the buffalo sauce.
Step 8: On top of the sweet potatoes, add the broccoli and chicken after the 30-minute mark.
Step 9: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 20 to 25 minutes until the internal temperature of the chicken reached 165 degrees F.
Step 10: Remove the casserole from the oven, top with cheese, green onion, and cooked bacon. Bake for another 5 minutes until the cheese has melted.
Step 11: Before serving, allow the casserole to cool for a few minutes. Add the rest of the toppings such as ranch or blue cheese.
Store the casserole for up to 5 days in the fridge or freeze for a longer period.
