Ingredients

  • 1 (1.5 lb) bag Baby Boomer Little Potatoes
  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup prepared ranch dressing, divided use
  • 2 cups Mexican Cheese Blend
  • 1 cup cooked and crumbled bacon
  • 1/2 cup diced green onion

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450f.
  • Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Dice the Little Potatoes into 1-inch cubes.
  • In a large bowl mix together the diced potatoes, salt & pepper and 1/4 cup ranch dressing.
  • Scoop the potatoes into prepared baking dish (save that bowl, we're going to use it again for the chicken.)
  • Bake the potatoes for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until almost thoroughly cooked (they won't be fork tender quite yet.).
  • While the potatoes are cooking, add the cubed chicken to the bowl you used to the potatoes and add salt and pepper and the remaining 1/4 cup ranch seasoning.
  • Once the potatoes have cooked 30 minutes, remove baking dish from the oven and lower the oven temperature to 400F.
  • Top the cooked potatoes with the raw marinated chicken.
  • Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil (Warning: Baking dish will be VERY hot so use oven mitts to do this.)
  • Place baking dish back in the oven and cook for an additional 20 minutes (or until chicken is fully cooked.)
  • Take baking dish out of the oven and top with shredded cheese, bacon and green onion.
  • Place back in oven for 8-10 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Notes

If you can’t find Little Potatoes, just purchase Yukon Gold yellow potatoes and dice them up into 1-inch cubes. You’ll need to purchase enough potatoes so that when you cut them up, they will fill the bottom of your 9 x 13 baking dish.
