Loaded Potato and Chicken Casserole
 
Ingredients
  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 4 potatoes
  • 4 carrots
  • ½ onion
  • 1 cup of bacon bits
  • ⅓ cup EVOO
  • 2 tbsp hot sauce
  • 1½ cups cheddar or Tex Mex Cheese
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Boil chicken to make sure that it is cooked through.
  3. Peel and dice the potatoes and carrots, and chop the onion while the chicken is boiling.
  4. Add oil, hot sauce, and seasonings to the vegetables and toss in a good sized bowl to fully cover everything.
  5. Dump into a large casserole dish that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
  6. Once the chicken is cooked though, cut it into bite sized pieces. I then put my chicken into the same bowl that I used for the veggies, that way it grabs any leftover seasonings from the bowl.
  7. Dump it in with the veggies, add your bacon, cover and bake for 20 minutes.
  8. Repeat time and stirring for a total of 60 minutes.
  9. Spread some cheese over top, leave uncovered and bake for 5-10, long enough for the cheese to melt.
