Loaded Baked Potato & Buffalo Chicken Casserole

Warning: this dish is extremely delicious, but very spicy. Spicy in a buffalo sauce kinda way.
If you love buffalo chicken and loaded baked potatoes with bacon, cheese and chives, than this dish is definitely for you. This recipes was found at Blabbering Thoughts.
Since there are only three of us and I wasn't sure if Mr. Pickypants would really like this casserole because of the buffalo sauce, I only made half the recipe and baked it in a 8X8 inch dish.  I am sure substituting BBQ sauce for the buffalo sauce would also work out great. I think I just might do that the next time I make it! I didn't have any green onions so I used chives instead and they worked great. I also used buffalo wing sauce instead of regular Tabasco sauce because that is what I had on hand and I like the creaminess of the buffalo wing sauce over regular Tabasco sauce. This casserole is extremely good. I baked mine at 400 degrees. I was leery of cooking it at 500 degrees. It just seemed to high to me, but I was only making half a recipe so it didn't take as long as a whole recipe would to cook.

Preheat oven 500F
In a large bowl mix Olive Oil, Salt, Pepper, Paprika, Garlic Powder & Hot Sauce

Cube the chicken & add it to the bowl with the left over sauce
