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!
