Make this Loaded Potato and Chicken Casserole tonight! Seasoned potatoes and chicken are baked together and then topped with plenty of cheese, green onions and bacon! #BaconMonth2015
Bacon Month is coming to an end …… bummer, I know! I have wanted to share this Loaded Potato and Chicken Casserole recipe with y’all for awhile – and I’m glad I am getting the chance to today as the last post for Bacon Month! Seriously, make it tonight and thank me later! This is always a hit in the Love Bakes Good Cakes house!
This is sooooo easy to put together – and it pretty much does it’s thing in the oven without much babysitting. That’s my idea of the perfect meal. Amen?! Plus, when it tastes this good, mmmmmm – trust me, just do it.
We usually have this with a simple side salad for a fuss-free meal … especially now that we’re back on a school schedule! Gah. I won’t even talk about school schedules right now ….. we’re still sorting stuff out! But really, this Loaded Potato and Chicken Casserole makes up for the chaos – it’s easy, delicious and bacon. And cheese. Yes, bacon and cheese makes everything right in my world! At least for dinnertime! 😉
