Yield 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 8 medium potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (you can leave the skin on or peel it off)
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 6 tablespoons hot sauce

Topping:

  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup cooked and crumbled bacon
  • 1 cup sliced green onions

Sauce:

  • Blue cheese/ranch dressing

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 500F (Not a typo!)
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the olive oil, hot sauce, salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika.
  3. Add the potatoes and toss to coat.
  4. Place the potatoes in a greased 9x13 baking dish.
  5. When scooping the potatoes into the baking dish, leave behind any extra olive oil/hot sauce mix for your chicken.
  6. Add the diced chicken to the leftover olive oil/hot sauce mix and stir to coat all the chicken. Allow the chicken to marinate as the potatoes bake.
  7. Roast the potatoes for 20-25 minutes, stirring halfway, until cooked through and nice and crispy on the outside.
  8. Remove potatoes from the oven and lower the oven temperature to 400°F.
  9. Place the raw chicken (yes, raw) on top of the potatoes and cook for 20 minutes or until the chicken is done.
  10. In a large bowl, mix all the topping ingredients together.
  11. Top the chicken with the topping and bake for 5-10 minutes or until topping is melted and bubbly.
  12. Serve with extra hot sauce and blue cheese/ranch dressing.
