I love loaded baked potatoes. Sour cream, chives, bacon bits & shredded cheese. Yummy! This Loaded Chicken and Potatoes Casserole dish is like one big loaded baked potato with chicken. Great comfort food.
This casserole recipe is super easy to make and will take about 1 hour to bake. But it will be well worth the wait. This casserole is so good you will never look at baked potatoes the same way!
I enjoy making casseroles. They are usually pretty simple to make but can take time to bake. Like this casserole recipe. There are days where I just don't feel like spending hours in the kitchen and casseroles are the perfect alternative.
🐓 How to Handle Raw Chicken
Leave the chicken in the fridge until ready to use.
Be careful of dripping juices. Clean up immediately.
Do not wash raw chicken (which prevents cross-contamination).
Wash all utensils and cutting boards (if applicable).
If marinating the chicken, make sure you toss the juices before you cook. Don't ever use the juice from the marinade.
Wash your hands after handling raw chicken.

🥓 How to Make Bacon
If you struggle to make bacon perfectly, I've put together a short tutorial on How to Make Perfect Bacon - 3 Ways. Check it out! My preferred method is baking it in the oven.
And don't throw away that bacon grease! Bacon is expensive and the grease is great for making Scrambled Eggs, Grilled Cheese, Popcorn and even hash browns. It can keep up to 3 months if properly stored in the refrigerator.
