Barbecue Chicken Hash Brown Casserole
- 2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 cup barbecue sauce
- 1 bag (30 ounces) Ore Ida Shredded Hash Browns Potatoes
- 2 cups cheddar cheese
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Place the chicken and 2/3 cup barbecue sauce in a ziploc bag. Make sure the chicken is coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1/2 hour.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Place the hash browns, 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, salt, pepper, and olive oil in a greased 13x9 pan. Mix all the ingredients until combined. Spread the hash browns out so that they are covering the bottom of the pan.
Arrange the chicken breasts on top of the hash browns. Spread the additional 1/3 cup of barbecue sauce on top of the chicken.
Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink on the inside. Once done sprinkle the additional 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese on top of the chicken. Place back into the oven until the cheese is melted, about 3-5 minutes.
If you do not have time you can skip the marinating step. Just spread the barbecue sauce on top of the chicken.
