Buffalo Chicken Cheesy Fries

There is just something about a plate of fries piled high that makes my mouth water. Instead of going out somewhere, make your own plate of fries loaded with the kick of buffalo chicken. You won’t find loaded fries like this many places! It’s easy to put together, and it’s a delicious late-night snack. It’s also a great appetizer to share. If you are craving just cheesy fries without the chicken, be sure to check out my Loaded Cheese Fries!

Ingredients

For this recipe, there are a few homemade options you can use in place of store-bought items.

Fries: I used a bag of regular-cut, frozen French fries in this recipe. I seasoned them after they had been baked. You could also use unseasoned frozen steak fries or make Roasted Potato Wedges for a heartier potato. My Air Fryer French Fries would also be a delicious option!

Chicken: Homemade rotisserie chicken or store-bought will work perfectly in this recipe. Or, use any leftover shredded chicken you may have.

Buffalo Sauce: Yes, I have a recipe for homemade buffalo sauce that you could easily make for this recipe. If using store-bought sauce, be sure to check the label for buffalo sauce (different than hot sauce).

Cheese Sauce: This is AMAZING. I used two different kinds of cheese in the sauce (sharp cheddar and mozzarella), as well as more buffalo sauce!

Toppings: The toppings are optional, so load up with as many as you prefer or have on hand! I added green onions, ranch dressing (or blue cheese), buffalo sauce, and bleu cheese crumbles. Serve with a side of celery, just like when enjoying buffalo chicken wings!

Can I Make this Ahead of Time?

There are a few parts to this recipe you can get made in advance. For one, you could get the buffalo sauce made and stored for up to a month. In addition, you can also get the chicken shredded and stored in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. And finally, the cheese sauce can be made, cooled completely, and stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Simply reheat the cheese sauce on the stove when ready to assemble the fries.

Instructions

Fries

Assembly

  • Increase the oven temperature to the broil setting.
  • Sprinkle the baked fries with seasoned salt and pepper, tossing to coat. Spread them back into an even layer. Top the fries with the chicken mixture. Broil for 1-3 minutes, or until the fries are crispy and the chicken is heated through.
