When I saw this dish over at Joyously Domestic, my mouth started watering!  I knew I had to give it a try but I wanted to make it into a one dish meal by adding some protein!

Cheesy Chicken Ranch Potatoes is a great dish that the whole family will love!  In this recipe I leave the skin on the potatoes because I love the flavor the potato skin adds!  The ranch dressing in this recipe can be store bought (like Hidden Valley) but I much prefer to use homemade ranch dressing… not only does it taste great, but it is a little bit healthier!

This  is yet another recipe that can easily be tailored to what is in your fridge…

  • rotisserie chicken
  • ground beef and taco seasoning
  • add in peppers
  • broccoli & cheddar
  • mushrooms, peas and ham with swiss cheese!

The possibilities are endless!

I hope your family enjoys this as much as mine did!

  • 3 chicken breasts, cubed
  • 2 pounds red potatoes
  • ½ cup ranch dressing (store bought or homemade)
  • ¾ cup shredded cheese, divided (cheddar or your favorite blend)
  • 8 slices of bacon cooked crisp & crumbled
  • 4 green onions thinly sliced
  • ½ teaspoon each pepper, garlic powder, dill and parsley
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Over medium heat, fry chicken until no pink remains (about 6-8 minutes).
  3. Wash potatoes and cut into bite sized cubes. I left the skin on my potatoes (extra flavor and fiber!).
  4. In a large bowl, combine chicken, potatoes, ranch dressing, ¼ cup cheese, bacon, green onions and seasonings. Toss until mixed through.
  5. Pour mixture into a greased 9x13 pan. Cover and bake 45 minutes. Increase oven temperature to 400 degrees. Uncover pan and top with remaining ½ cup of cheese. Bake an additional 20 minutes or until potatoes are cooked through and cheese is browned and bubbly.

    I am making these for a pot luck tomorrow. Has anyone tried making them ahead of time ~ say 8 hours ahead of time? I am concerned the potatoes might turn brown. Thanks for any advice!

  7. Denise says

    we made this tonight, it was really good but took almost twice as long to cook to get the potatoes cooked. Any suggestions or tips? Thanks! Denise

      There are many reasons it may have taken longer for your potatoes to cook (the variety or size of potato, temp of your oven etc). I find the yellow or red skinned potatoes seem to work best for me. You may also like to cut your potatoes a bit smaller and ensure the pan is not overcrowded. Hope that helps.
