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!

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  1. How long and what temp do I use if I made this with russsets potatoes instead of red?

    • I haven’t tried it, but I would expect the cook time would remain the same. Check to make sure they are tender, and cook a few minutes longer if needed.

  2. Easy and yummy!

  3. We love this dish but it is soooooo greasy. It just pools in the corners of the dish. What am I doing wrong?

  4. Making mine now with cilantro lime ranch, can’t wait! Thank you! And roughly how many calories do you think this is per serving if I may ask anyone?

  5. Made this today and it was the perfect comfort food. Found it on Yummly. Now I will come to your blog for other recipes. Thanks

  6. 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.

  7. This recipe looks great. Thank you, and now I am off to the store because I am out of green onions AND ranch dressing, but sure will try this tonight!!
