Loaded Chicken Potato Bake has bacon and cheese!

Loaded Chicken Potato Bake is so good! Take chunks of chicken and potatoes, toss them in olive oil and seasonings, then bake to perfection. And if that isn’t enough, add crumbled bacon, green onions, and melt cheese down over all of it. Does that sound delicious, or what?!

I could eat meat and potatoes every single night. Really! They are my favorite, and it doesn’t even matter how they are prepared. I have yet to make, or be served, a dish containing potatoes that I did not like.

We don’t eat as many potatoes as we used to. When my kids were little we ate potatoes A LOT. Probably 3 or 4 nights a week. My husband is glad we eat a wider variety of foods now. Me, too.

A vegetable rounds out this meal nicely, and these Creamed Peas would go great with this dish. If you are looking for an easy dessert (my weakness!) this Black Forest Poke Cake is super easy and yummy.

There is almost always more than one kind of cheese in my fridge, so for this recipe I used mostly cheddar and a little Romano. I had some Stella Cheese left from my Perfect Party Cheese Board, so I used a little of that.

Two cheeses give this dish another dimension of flavor, but you could certainly use all cheddar or a combination of different cheeses. There is no need to buy two different kinds of cheese just for this recipe. It will taste just as good with one kind, I promise!
