Loaded Chicken & Potato Casserole

As of a few months ago, I have been trying to venture out more with my recipes, and not make as many casseroles. Our lives haven’t been as crazy busy since the move, so I have had more time to cook each night. Last week however, I came across a version of this casserole on Pinterest and knew I had to try it. After making a few changes based on what I had in my hpouse, I served this for dinner and the entire family loved it. This was probably one of the most flavorful casseroles I have ever tried, and even my kiddos ate it up…..and trust me, they are 3 picky eaters!

I paired this casserole with a salad and had dinner on the table in no time! Since it has both your potato and meat in it, add a veggie or salad and dinner is ready to go!!

This would also be a great idea to make when having company over or if you are bringing a meal to a friend/family!!

Enjoy!

So I loved the recipe. I don’t know if I should have cut the potatoes smaller or cooked them longer but I had a few crunchies. And next time I’m going to use more bacon. It was funny my husband was a little apprehensive or grossed out by the mayo but he ended up really liking it. I drained all the liquid before I adde the cheese.

It turned out pretty good. I need up adding more mayo, but it was still little dry, so I think if adding precooked chicken it needs to be played with. Two of my kids wanted seconds. lol!!! I really liked the green onions on top. Thanks, it was a hit.

do you cover the casserole when you bake it? also how about adding white onions to the mixture, will they be ok or will they dry out? lastly how about adding some spicy sausage and chicken?

Would this work to freeze and then thaw before baking?

This looks amazing! I have a couple of questions: could this recipe be adapted for the slow cooker and could I substitute sour cream for the mayo?

Thanks!

Have you tried making this ahead and then reheating? I am looking for a recipe for a large group and wanted something I can make the day before and then just reheat. Thank You

Modified for the crock pot like suggested. It was a big hit with the family! I will probably add the sour cream at the end as it made the dish a little grainy, but even with that my husband gave the OK to put into our dinner rotation. Thanks for the tips!!!

This was AMAZING! I couldn’t stop eating it! Wonderful flavour. Our whole family loved this dish. Will definitely be a regular for us. I only used a mild Tabasco sauce in this dish which satisfied everyone. Thanks for an awesome recipe!

What about using Ranch dressing instead of Mayo?
