What you’ll need

  • 9×13 baking dish
  • Olive oil– or avocado oil
  • Dry ranch seasoning– the dry ranch dressing packet that’s found in the salad dressing aisle. Do not prepare the dressing, we’re just using the seasoning packet.
  • Seasonings– black pepper, paprika, in addition to the ranch seasoning. I personally do not think this needs extra salt because of the ranch and bacon, but feel free to add it if you want.
  • Potatoes– I typically use russet or yellow potatoes in this dish. You can peel the potatoes or leave the peel on.
  • Chicken breasts– boneless, skinless. Thighs can be substituted, if you prefer.
  • Yellow onion– for a little sweetness and added flavor.
  • Shredded cheddar cheese– or pepper jack, a Mexican blend, Colby, or any cheese your family likes. Shredding it yourself makes the best melty cheese.
  • Bacon– cooked and chopped. I love this bacon maker to cook just a couple of slices of bacon without the mess.
  • Green onions (scallions) and sour cream to serve.

2. Bake it: Bake for 45 minutes. Top the casserole with cheese and bake an additional 10 minutes until the cheese is ooey gooey and perfect.

3. Finish it: Sprinkle with bacon and chopped green onions.

Serve with sour cream.

Ranch Seasoning from Scratch

If you prefer, make your own ranch seasoning:

You’ll need:

1/2 cup dry buttermilk powder (in the baking section)

1 Tbsp onion powder

1 Tbsp garlic powder

1 Tbsp dried parsley

2 tsp dried dill

2 tsp dried chives

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper (or more to taste)

Whisk all ingredients together. Store leftovers in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

Tips and Tricks

  • For an easy short cut, use shredded rotisserie chicken.
  • Add broccoli florets to the mix before baking for extra veggies.
  • Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container up to 3 days.
