Chicken Scalloped Potatoes

The weather hit 70 degrees the other night and naturally, I craved fall food. I wanted potatoes, but needed a protein. I had a rotisserie chicken in the fridge that needed to be used so I shredded that and decided to make a scalloped potatoes dish and incorporate the shredded chicken. Working under pressure for a weeknight meal. That’s how it’s done! Get creative!

A homemade cheese sauce always makes it a little more like comfort food. I added some chili powder and a mix of gouda and cheddar cheese for some extra flavor.
