Chicken Bacon Ranch Baked Potatoes

Chicken Bacon Ranch Baked Potatoes Recipe:


  • 5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Chicken stock for boiling (enough to cover the chicken)
  • 1 pack of bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon smoked chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon honey sriracha powder (optional for added heat)
  • 1/2 bottle of ranch dressing
  • 6 large potatoes
  • Cooking oil
  • Salt for seasoning potatoes
  • Butter for potatoes
  • Shredded cheese (cheddar or a blend)
  • Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. In a large pot, bring seasoned chicken stock to a boil. Add chicken breasts and cook for about 10 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked. The seasoned stock should enhance the flavor of the chicken. Once cooked, shred the chicken using two forks.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the shredded chicken, chopped bacon, garlic powder, Old Bay seasoning, black pepper, salt, parsley, smoked chili powder, honey sriracha powder (if using), and ranch dressing. Mix until all the ingredients are well combined. Adjust the seasoning to taste.
  4. Wash the potatoes thoroughly and coat them with a thin layer of cooking oil. Poke holes throughout each potato using a fork, and then sprinkle them with salt.
  5. Place the seasoned potatoes directly on the oven rack and bake for about 50 minutes or until they are tender when pierced with a fork.
  6. Once the potatoes are baked, cut them in half lengthwise. Fluff the insides with a fork and add a small pat of butter to each potato.
  7. Spoon the chicken and bacon mixture generously into each potato half.
  8. Top each filled potato with a generous amount of shredded cheese.
  9. Place the stuffed potatoes under the broiler for about 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly, creating a golden brown crust.
  10. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired.
  11. Serve the chicken bacon ranch baked potatoes hot and enjoy this delicious and hearty meal!
