Easy + Delicious = My favorite kind of dinner recipe! Making this ASAP! Buffalo Chicken Bake via

I have created many – a- chicken bake recipe now, and it never seems to amaze me how delicious they are when they come out of the oven.  I have always been a chicken person but baked chicken breast was never one of my favorite dinners until we started making these chicken bakes.  The recipe is so easy it is almost too good to be true.  Yet it really is that good!

All you need to prep for dinner is a few ingredients and a few minutes and then you just let this yummy little guy bake in the oven while you get the table set, things cleaned up and you are ready to go.  Literally, you can have a Buffalo Chicken Bake ready to go into the oven in about 10 minutes.  I would say 3 minutes if you precut the veggies!

Buffalo Chicken Bake Recipe

All you need are a few ingredients: chicken breast, your favorite buffalo wing sauce, any combination of red, yellow, and orange bell peppers, and some grated cheese.

This recipe couldn't be any easier! Buffalo Chicken Bake via


First preheat your oven, then grab a baking dish.  Any ol’ dish will do, but my FAVORITE for chicken bakes is this 2 QT Pyrex dish. It is about 11×7, so a little smaller than their normal baking dish and absolutely perfect for 3 chicken breasts which is what I usually make.

Spray your baking dish with cooking spray then lay the chicken breast down flat on the bottom of the dish.  Pour 1-2 tablespoons of buffalo sauce over each chicken breast, depending on how much you LOVE buffalo flavor.  I find that I like more because during baking it runs off a bit as the juices come out of the chicken.

Next layer on the bell peppers.  I cut them into thin-ish strips and then cut the strips in half to make it easier when we eat the dish.  Just cover the top with the peppers.

TIP: To save time or if you know you will be in a hurry when you prepare this recipe, precut the peppers the night before to make it super quick to assemble.

Top the whole thing with cheese.  You can put as much or as little as your family likes. We tend to love the cheesy goodness so I add a little extra usually!

Bake at 350 for 35-35 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink.  The cooking time will vary on this dish depending on the thickness of the chicken breast, how close they are together and how your oven bakes, so keep an eye on it.  It will take longer than baking regular chicken since there is a layer of veggies on top- so make sure to account for that!

I've died and gone to heaven! This looks delicious! Easy Buffalo Chicken Bake via


When you take it out of the oven you should have something that smells totally amazing and looks something like this!  So delicious I tell you!

I like to serve it hot over rice or salad greens with a little ranch!  IF you have leftovers, they are great the next day reheated, or served in a wrap, sandwich, or salad!  I even chop it up and put it on pizza from time to time.  You really can’t go wrong with it if you love buffalo flavor!

      Use thawed chicken. Since there is so much layered in it already takes longer than normal to bake, so if you were to use frozen it would take a REALLY long time for the chicken to get done.

  1. Cheryl Tatom says

    Made this tonight and it was really good! Only change I made was to slice an onion in with the peppers:)

  2. Melanie says

    Sounds delicious!!
    I was wondering, we just bought our first home a few days ago so we literally have nothing more than a crock pot, stove & a waffle maker! lol
    Could this be made in a crockpot??
    Also, any ideas on how to add some bleu cheese flavor?

    Thank so much :)

      Hi Joanne- I bake mine uncovered on the lower middle rack and have no problems. Some ovens depending on size, altitude and configuration may bake differently. I would recommend keeping an eye on it the first time you make it and if it starts to get too brown then pop some foil on it.

    You could use a package of frozen pepper and onion strips for the fresh peppers. They work great in baked dishes and I’m sure the onions would be fine. Talk about an easy quick meal.
    I didn’t rate the recipe because I haven’t had a chance to make it yet. Sounds yummy, though.

    • Erica says

      I added a little salt and pepper and a half a pack of dry ranch I had leftover from a previous recipe before adding the buffalo. This is DELICIOUS!! Has been added to our rotation here! Thanks!!

      season your chicken with black pepper, adobe, sazon (orange seasoning) and you can cut up some onions an let all this marinate for a 35-45 minutes then proceed with the steps.

  4. melanie johnson says

    on the front pic it says 5 and 1/2 peppers , here it says 1 1/2. Big difference, don’t know what to do.

    Hi there, not sure what I did wrong but mines was very runny, not sure what I did wrong, any suggestions? Thanks

    • says

      Hi Dawn- sometimes it can be the actual chicken that’s the culprit. Some chicken can be pumped full of a salt water solution to plump it up and make it look better in the package. When you cook it the fluid all bakes out and some will evaporate but much of it will just pool at the bottom. Check the label next time and see if that may be the case.

      • Dawn says

        Thanks very much for that kimber your prob right with that, will try different chicken, the quality of the chicken in the supermarkets where I live in Scotland isn’t the best at the minute, will try the butchers.

        Kind Regards
