Loaded cheesy chicken potatoe casserole

Recipe: Loaded Cheesy Chicken Potato Casserole


  • 6-8 russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 lb boneless chicken breast, cubed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Seasonings of your choice (e.g., 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, 1 teaspoon paprika, 1 teaspoon garlic powder)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, or your favorite)
  • 6 slices of cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 2-3 green onions, thinly sliced


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish or casserole dish.
  2. Prepare the Potatoes and Chicken: Peel and cube the russet potatoes and cube the boneless chicken breast. Place them in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Season the Potatoes and Chicken: In a separate bowl, mix the olive oil with your choice of seasonings. You can use the suggested seasonings or customize them to your taste. Stir the olive oil mixture well.
  4. Coat the Potatoes and Chicken: Pour the seasoned olive oil mixture over the potatoes and chicken cubes in the mixing bowl. Toss to ensure that the potatoes and chicken are evenly coated with the seasoned oil.
  5. Transfer to Casserole Dish: Place the coated potato and chicken mixture into the greased casserole dish, spreading it out evenly.
  6. Bake: Bake the casserole in the preheated oven for about 60 minutes or until the potatoes are tender and the chicken is cooked through. You can test the doneness of the potatoes by inserting a fork; they should be soft.
  7. Add Toppings: Remove the casserole from the oven and sprinkle the shredded cheese evenly over the top. Follow this by sprinkling the crumbled cooked bacon and sliced green onions over the cheese.
  8. Return to Oven: Place the casserole back in the oven for an additional 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the toppings are slightly golden.
  1. Can I use a different type of potato?
    • While russet potatoes work well for this recipe, you can use other types of potatoes like Yukon Gold or red potatoes if you prefer. Just keep in mind that different potatoes may have slightly different textures when cooked.
  2. Can I use boneless chicken thighs instead of chicken breast?
    • Yes, you can substitute boneless chicken thighs for chicken breast if you prefer the flavor and texture of thighs. Adjust the cooking time as needed to ensure the chicken is fully cooked.
  3. What seasonings can I use for the olive oil mixture?
    • You can customize the seasonings to your taste. In addition to the suggested seasonings, you can add herbs like thyme, rosemary, or oregano, or even some red pepper flakes for a bit of heat.
  4. Can I prepare this casserole in advance?
    • Yes, you can assemble the casserole in advance and refrigerate it until you’re ready to bake it. Just be sure to cover it with plastic wrap or foil to prevent drying out. Bake it when needed.
  5. How do I know when the chicken is cooked through?
    • Chicken is safe to eat when its internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). You can use a meat thermometer to check the chicken’s temperature. It should no longer be pink in the center, and the juices should run clear.
  6. Can I add other vegetables to the casserole?
    • Absolutely! You can add vegetables like bell peppers, broccoli, or mushrooms to the casserole for added flavor and nutrition. Simply toss them in the seasoned olive oil mixture with the potatoes and chicken.
