Loaded Chicken and Potato Casserole


  • 1 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken tenders, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 5 medium white potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 tbsp. paprika
  • 1 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, freshly shredded
  • 1/2 cup cooked, chopped bacon OR real bacon bits
  • 2 scallions, sliced thing, for garnish (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with non-stick spray.

Spread the chicken, potato and onion pieces evenly into the baking dish.

In a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Pour mixture evenly over the chicken, potatoes and onions. Stir to coat the chicken, potatoes and onions.

Bake, uncovered, for 50 to 55 minutes.

Remove from oven, and sprinkle evenly with the cheddar cheese and chopped bacon. Bake another 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Garish with scallions, if desired.
