Serves: 4 servings
  • 1 box of Hungry Jack Cheesy Hashbrowns (4.2 oz) **
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 1 Chicken Breast, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • ½ cup onion, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1.5 cups milk
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 3-4 tbsp Buffalo Wings Hot Sauce
  • ¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup peas
  • 1 cup cooked pasta
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  1. Cook pasta as per package directions and keep aside once cooked!
  2. If using Hungry Jack Hashbrowns, fill the box with hot water upto the level mentioned on the box. Let it sit for 15 minutes. Then make sure there is no excess water left. Heat oven to 400F and add oil in a baking dish. Transfer hashbrowns mixed with salt & pepper onto it and cook for 30 mins in oven.
  3. ** If using from scratch homemade hashbrowns, grate your potatoes and squeeze out all the water.
  4. Mix with some shredded cheese, salt & pepper. Transfer these onto an oiled baking dish and bake for 30-45 minutes or until potatoes are cooked through.
  5. While hashbrowns are getting ready, get the sauce ready.
  6. In a skillet, add oil. To it add chopped carrots & onions along with a pinch of salt. Cook until softened. Add flour and stir until raw smell of flour is gone. To it add milk while continuously stirring.
  7. Add salt and pepper. Keep cooking until it gets thick.
  8. Turn of the gas and add buffalo sauce & cheese and mix. Taste for seasonings. Now fold in chopped chicken, peas, cooked pasta and mix.
  9. Once the hashbrowns are done, pull them out of the oven. Scoop out hashbrowns just leaving enough to make a base or a bed for the cheesy mixture in the pan. Top the bed of hashbrowns with this mixture and then cover with the remaining hashbrowns.
  10. Cook at 350F for 15 - 17 minutes. Top the hashbrowns with 2 cups shredded cheese and turn the oven to broiler setting.
  11. Broil the dish until cheese is bubbling & melty. By this time chicken should be cooked throughout too. I cut my chicken pieces really small so it helps in cooking faster too.
  12. Serve just as it is with a salad or drizzled with blue cheese dressing!
