This recipe takes two favorites and puts them into one delicious dish. This casserole can be made ahead and it freezes and reheats beautifully. Though it includes hot sauce it’s not overly spicy but you can always mix some ranch sauce with the hot sauce to cool things down. This is a family favorite.
Preheat oven to 500 F. This is not a typo, 500 F is correct! Coat a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with non-stick baking spray and set it aside.
In a large bowl mix together the olive oil, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder and hot sauce. Add the cubed potatoes and stir to coat.
Carefully scoop the potatoes into the prepared baking dish, leaving behind as much of the olive oil/hot sauce mix as possible. Bake the potatoes for 45-50 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes, until cooked through and crispy and browned on the outside.
While the potatoes are cooking, add the cubed chicken to the bowl with the leftover olive oil/hot sauce mix and stir to coat. Put it into the refrigerator to marinate until the potatoes are ready.
Once the potatoes are fully cooked, remove them from the oven and lower the oven temperature to 400 F. Top the cooked potatoes with the raw marinated chicken.
In a bowl mix together the cheese, bacon and green onion and top the raw chicken with the cheese mix. Return the casserole to the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the topping is bubbly delicious.
Serve with extra hot sauce and/or ranch dressing.
My kids really like this recipe because they say It taste just like pizza. Besides getting rave reviews at home, this was another popular side we used to have on the TaylorMade Menu in the cafe. This is a lovely way to use stale bread or when you have fresh farmers market tomatoes. You can use any kind you like; I have made this recipe with all kinds—red, yellow and orange tomatoes, grape tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes, etc.
