Smoky Chicken and Cheesy Potato Casserole

I'm a sucker for a good casserole and when I saw this recipe in Better Homes and Gardens, I knew I had to make it. The original recipe was a slow cooker recipe but since I didn't have enough time to cook it in the crock pot, I adapted the recipe to make it oven friendly. It turned out great!

Smoky Chicken and Cheesy Potato Casserole
Heavily Adapted from Better Homes and Gardens
Serves 8
Cal 261, Fat 8.2g, Carbs 27.7g, Fiber 2g, Protein 19.2g

 Nonstick cooking spray
 1 tbsp smoked paprika
 1 can condensed cream of chicken soup (see my can free cream of chicken recipe below)
 1 cup sour cream (I used reduced fat)
 1 1 /2 cup smoked cheddar cheese, shredded (I used smoked gouda)
 1 28 ounce package frozen diced hash brown potatoes with onion and peppers, thawed
 3 cups chopped smoked or roasted chicken (I used a rotisserie chicken breast)

Cream of Chicken Soup Substitute*
1 tablespoon flour
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup milk
salt and pepper, to taste

Melt the butter in a small sauce pan over medium-low heat. When melted, whisk in the flour and continue whisking until smooth and bubbly. Remove from the heat and slowly whisk in the chicken broth and milk. Return to the heat and bring to a boil, whisking constantly, until the soup thickens. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Pre-heat oven to 450
Spray a 9x13 dish with cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients. Cook for 45 minutes or until potatoes are tender and cheese is nicely browned. Enjoy!
