Loaded out cheesy, chicken, and potato casserole is as easy as 1-2-3. For lighter and more sensitive palates, reduce the hot sauce measurement by half.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 500°F (This is NOT a typo, 500°F is correct!).

Step 2

In a large bowl, mix together the olive oil, hot sauce, salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika.

Step 3

Add the cubed potatoes and stir to coat. Then add the potatoes to a greased baking dish.

Step 4

When scooping the potatoes into the baking dish, leave behind any extra olive oil/hot sauce mix.

Step 5

Add the diced chicken to the remaining olive oil/hot sauce mix and stir to coat all the chicken. Allow to marinate as the potatoes bake.

Step 6

Roast the potatoes for 45-50 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes, until cooked through and nice and crispy on the outside.

Step 7

Once the potatoes are fully cooked, remove from the oven, lower the oven temperature to 400°F and add the marinated chicken.

Step 8

In a large bowl mix all the topping ingredients together. Top the raw chicken with the topping.

Step 9

Bake 15 minutes or until until the chicken is cooked through and the topping is melted and bubbly delicious.

My three picky kids loved this recipe.

I'm sorry but I did not like it. I decided to make this while on a trip. Since I did not have my recipe, I used this one which looked very similar. With my recipe I mix the chicken and the potatoes together. I cook them at the same time. By putting the chicken on top of the potatoes after the potatoes were cooked, left the chicken without flavor. I don't use that much olive oil which also left a lot of oil in the casserole dish once completed, making the casserole very greasy and falling apart.

Incomplete instructions?

Did I miss the size of the casserole dish that all this went into?

Very Flavorable

Made this for the first time for dinner tonight and my husband and I really enjoyed it. Before beginning, I did look at the reviews and agreed 6 TBLS hot sauce, along with a TBLS of pepper, was a lot. Did not have hot sauce, so used 2 TBLS of Buffalo wing sauce and turned out well. The potatoes were nice and crispy before I put the chicken on top....they were no longer crispy when all done. For that reason, I would potentially cook chicken separately next time. Very flavorful.

Great recipe

This is an awesome recipe. Although, I did use less hot sauce. My kiddos loved this :-)

Very good but

My wife loved it as is but for me it had a little too much hot sauce. Other than that it was easy and very good.

Great flavor profile! Made changes to the prep

Hubby and I loved this recipe, and I will definitely make again. I understand the idea behind a "one dish" prep, but adding raw chicken on top of the cooked potatoes didn't sit well with me. First of all, I halved the recipe since it was just the two of us (and we still have leftovers for tomorrow), then I put the cubed potatoes on a baking sheet (instead of a casserole dish)-- they were done in 30 mins. at 500F. I set them aside and put the cut-up chicken in a casserole dish that I eventually used to add all ingredients to. Chicken was done in about 15-20 mins. I put the chicken in a colander to drain it and wiped out the casserole dish with a paper towel. I then added the layer of cooked potatoes, then the chicken (oh-- and I added sauteed chopped bell pepper and onion to that cooked chicken), then the crumbled bacon and cheese, and the green onion. Broiled at 400F for about 10 mins. till it was nicely warmed and melty and then served.  It was fantastic! This a recipe I would love to serve to guests. It was easy and had a wonderful mouthfeel. Served with a side salad it would be a complete menu.

I cut the amount of potatoes and cooked the chicken for a few minutes, chopped and added on top of the roasted potatoes. Then topped it with turkey bacon, shredded cheese and chopped green onion. Didn't like the idea of raw chicken on top of the potatoes. The family loved it and it was requested for tonight!

It's a keeper!

Loved this and my family did also! Even my picky eater!! I used boneless skinless breasts and added 1/4 cup yellow and red onion. I added sour cream to mine. Delicious and I'll definitely make it again.
