Loaded Potato and Chicken Casserole


Today’s recipe is one of my new favorite dinner recipes. I love chicken with potatoes that are prepared in the dutch oven and this recipe is just as good. This does take an hour and a half to bake but is well worth it. You get all the flavors of a loaded baked potato along with tender bites of chicken.

  • Just added this to our favorite dinners! :) We really liked it. My husband is scheming up a breakfast version. ;)

  • Bacon would absolutely NOT be ok if you put it in raw withouts crisping it before hand. You would be very disappointed.Why would you want to do that? It only takes 5 minutes.

  • Do you think the bacon would cook ok if I started with it raw? Seems like that should be long enough baking time to cook it… But maybe it wouldn’t get crispy? Sounds like a yummy recipe!
