Buffalo Chicken Casserole Pie



Here is a quick and easy appetizer or brunch for those
Buffalo Chicken lovers.


Filling:
2 cups boneless chicken breasts cut into chunks sautee' in 2 tablespoons of olive oil with 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic and 1 tablespoon of worcheshire sauce (or grill outside on a gas grill until chicken is cooked and browned basting with sauce and sprinkle some garlic powder on the chicken)  then set aside draining any oil off.

Buffalo Chicken Pie taste like chicken wings with a cornmeal crust, cheese and blue cheese. If you love those ingredients this is a quick fix to all the favorite ingredients with the big taste of hot wings all in one meal! You can make this as hot as you like just kick it up with more cayenne pepper.
Filling:
1/2 cup buffalo wing sauce
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese 
1 or 2 tablespoons chopped celery
1 tablespoon chopped jalapeno peppers more if you like it hotter
blue cheese dressing


The flavors will keep them coming back for more... buffalo casserole pie is a real party pleaser!

Topping:
1 cup baking mix like bisquick of jiffy brands
1/4 teaspoon each garlic powder, cayenne pepper, cajun spice, black pepper and parsley flakes
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
Garnish:
2/3 cup blue cheese dressing

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Coat the cubed chicken pieces with hot sauce, stir in the shredded cheese, blue cheese,  peppers and celery and 2 tablespoons of blue cheese dressing mix evenly. Pour all that into a well greased pie plate.

In a bowl mix the cornmeal, spices, herbs and baking mix together with milk and egg.  Place this on top of the chicken in the pie plate and spread over the chicken mixture evenly.   Pour more shredded cheese over the top.


Bake for 35 to 45 minutues until browned and bubbly.  Serve with blue cheese dressing on top.

If you are into hot wings then this recipe is through the roof. Luckily I like wings. Best of all I bet it is a lot less messy to eat than wings.

This is a pretty amazing dish. I say amazing because my doubting mind would have figured on the bottom layer burning. Not sure why it doesn't but what really matters is that it is a delicious savory creation! The choice of cornbread topping is perfect because I do not think I would have liked a biscuit topping. Clever and delicious dish Claudia! Enjoy the day.
