Fall Into Flavor and Celebrate - Buffalo Style

I am on business trip with my hubby (Raleigh N.C.), but I still wanted to take part in Linda's Fall Flavor and Tiffanies Celebrate fall (I have left something out of my post I love recipes!!! I am a recipe junkie) . . .

Have a favorite, post it and then surf on over to 2nd cup of coffee, check out the other recipes and Mr. Linky yours!
And then mosey on over to Two Peas In A Pod (or go opposite - but join the fun!)

I had heard several people talk about a great Buffalo Chicken Dip, well, while looking for it, I came across this casserole. Made it for my Hooter lovers (wait, I guess that does not sound very good, but I am going to leave it),
and they gobbled it up.

Easy Easy Dish!
Buffalo Chicken Casserole
1/2 Cup Uncooked Regular Long-grain White Rice
1 Cup Chicken Broth
1 Tbs. Olive Oil
1 Lb. Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, Cut Into Thin Strips
2 Medium Stalks Celery, Thinly Sliced {1 Cup}
1 Can {14.5 Oz.} Stewed Tomatoes, Undrained
1/2 Cup Buffalo Wing Sauce
1/4 Cup Blue Cheese Dressing

Cook Rice In Chicken Broth 20 Minutes As Directed On Pkg. Meanwhile, Heat Oven To 350 Degrees. In 12 Inch Skillet, Heat Oil Over Medium-high Heat. Add Chicken And Celery; Cook 5-7 Minutes, Stirring Frequently, Until Chicken Is No Longer Pink In Center. Remove From Heat. Open Can Of Tomatoes; Cut Up Tomatoes In Can {with Kitchen Scissors Or Hands, Is The Easiest Way} Stir Tomatoes And Wing Sauce Into Chicken Mixture. Spray 8-inch Square Baking Dish With Cooking Spray. Spoon Cooked Rice Into Dish. Spread Chicken Mixture Over Rice {do Not Stir} Bake 25-30 Minutes Or Until Hot In The Center. Drizzle Dressing Over Top.

I bought the Hooters Sauce at the grocery store - that worked well. Another time I used the sauce that is sold at Sams Club (Cosco might have it too). Worked just as good.
