Baked Chicken and Potato Casserole Recipe
Baked Chicken and Potato Casserole - crazy delicious and easy chicken potato casserole recipe loaded with potatoes, cheddar cheese, bacon and cream.
- 1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- 3 dashes ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 medium-sized potatoes, peeled and cut into pieces
- 8 oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into cubes
- 2 slices Canadian bacon, cut into pieces
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 stalk scallion, green part only, cut into small rounds
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9" x 9" baking pan with some oil or butter.
Add the salt, sugar, and pepper to the heavy whipping cream. Lightly stir to combine well.
Spread the potatoes, follow by the chicken, in one single layer. Sprinkle the bacon, butter, and then top with half of the cheddar cheese and the scallions. Pour the heavy cream over top of casserole. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour. Uncover the pan and bake for another 30 minutes. In the last 10 minutes, sprinkle with the remaining cheddar cheese and bake until the cheese is slightly crusty. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
Instead of Canadian bacon, you can use 1 or 2 strips of bacon. If you use bacon, pre-cooked them until they are crisp first.
