Chicken Bacon Ranch Potato Bake


Feed a crowd or have yummy leftovers for the week's lunches with the Chicken Bacon Ranch Potato Bake! This hearty main dish is baked in one pan and loaded with bacon & chunky ranch flavored chicken breasts all over roasted potatoes!


PREP TIME: 10 minutes

COOK TIME: 1 hour

TOTAL TIME: 1 hour 10 minutes

YIELD: 8 servings


INGREDIENTS:

3 pounds Russet Potatoes (about 6-7 medium), cut into 1 inch chunks

1/3 cup Avocado Oil or Olive Oil

2 tablespoons Hot Sauce

1 tablespoon Garlic Powder

1 (1 ounce) Ranch Seasoning packet (divided)

1 teaspoon Salt

1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper

2 pounds fresh Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts, cut into 1 inch chunks

1 cup Bacon Bits (homemade bacon bits are the best!)

1 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese

Sliced Green Onions, for topping (optional)


INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Prep potatoes: Preheat oven to 425° Fahrenheit. Add the potato chunks to a large mixing bowl, then add oil, hot sauce, garlic powder, 1 tablespoon of the Ranch seasoning packet, salt, and pepper to the bowl. Mix well until oil and seasonings are evenly distributed. Using a slotted spoon (don't pour them in), add the potatoes to a 9x13 inch casserole dish. Save the bowl and leave any oil/seasonings that have collected in the bowl there for the chicken.

2. Cook potatoes: Roast the potatoes in the preheated oven for 45 minutes total, stirring every 15 minutes so the potatoes cook evenly.

3. Prep chicken: Cut chicken into 1 inch chunks if not already done, then add to the same bowl the potatoes were ,ixed in. Add the remainder of the Ranch seasoning packet to the chicken and stir until well mixed and chicken is coated in oil from the bowl. Set aside until the potatoes have cooked for 45 minutes.

4. Put it together: After the potatoes have cooked for 45 minutes, remove the dish from the oven and give the potatoes a final stir. Add a layre of bacon bits (about 2/3 of them) on top of the potatoes, followed by about 1/2 cup of cheese. Next, add ALL of the raw chicken to the casserole dish, in as much of a single layer as possible. On top of the chicken, add the remaining bits of bacon and rest of the cheese.

5. Bake & serve: Bake in the 425° Fahrenheit oven for 15-20 minutes, until the chicken is completely cooked through and all the cheese is melty. Serve with salad or side veggie if preferred. Store in an airtight container and enjoy with 4 days.


**NOTE

For a 4 serving meal, cut recipe in half and baked for the same amount of time in an 8x8 baking dish.
