You ever feel like you make the same thing over and over again? I feel like with chicken I either make a baked fried chicken or add some sort of sauce to it and serve it with my go to rice.
I don’t often do a whole lot with potatoes. I don’t like mashing them but I will slice them and fry them or dice them up and . That’s pretty much it.
I also like simple one pot, easy clean up meals (even though I put everything in my dishwasher). When I found this recipe on Pinterest I was so excited that I found something easy and something that my kids would love to eat as well.
What You’ll Need:
4 slices Bacon (the original recipe said 1lb but for the dish size that is WAY too much)
1lb Boneless Chicken Breasts
2 tbsp Garlic Powder
1/2 cup Green Onion (I didn’t have any so this was something I omitted)
6 Red Potatoes (I used yellow as that’s what we usually have on hand)
2 tbsp Hot Sauce (I used 1 tbsp since my kids would be eating this and I used Franks Red Hot Buffalo Sauce)
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
1 tbsp Paprika
1 tsp Salt
1/3 cup Olive Oil
2 cups Mexican Blend Cheese (I went with Marble as it doesn’t contain anything else “spicy”)
Sour Cream or Ranch
I diced up my chicken and potatoes tossed put it in my backing dish and tossed with olive oil. Next I added all the spices – garlic powder, hot sauce, pepper, paprika, salt and mixed with all up with the chicken and potatoes. I topped it with the cheese and baked it then at 375F for 55-60 minutes. While that was cooking I fried up the bacon, crumbled it and waited for the casserole to be done before adding it to the top.
For the kids I served it with sour cream on top and for myself I used Ranch! Seriously so good either way! Everyone’s plates were empty!
