While you’re out and about, these chicken thighs and cheesy potatoes will be simmering away, getting more tender and flavorful in the slow cooker.
This turned out really good only I used a yellow pepper as that’s what I had and golden potatoes. Also I added Oregano and Italian Seasoning.
Very easy to prepare. Took about 3 hours to complete and I loved it!
Based on other reviews that said it might be bland I made a few changes right off the top: Added a red pepper 4 oz chopped fresh mushrooms and 1/2 small onion as well as salt and pepper.
1 lb boneless chicken breasts, cubed (1″)
6-8 medium skin on red potatoes, cut in 1/2″ cubes
1/3 c olive oil
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp paprika
2 Tbsp garlic powder
2 Tbsp hot sauce (more if you like it HOT)
2 c fiesta blend cheese
1 c crumbled bacon
1 c diced green onion
How to Make:
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 9X13″ baking dish with cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, mix together the olive oil, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and hot sauce. Add the cubed potatoes and chicken and stir to coat. Carefully scoop the potatoes and chicken into the prepared baking dish..
3. Bake the potatoes and chicken for 55-60 minutes, stirring every 20 minutes, until cooked through, crispy, and browned on the outside. While the potatoes are cooking, fry your bacon (about half a pound).
4. Once the potatoes and chicken are fully cooked, remove from the oven. Top the cooked potatoes with the the cheese, bacon, and green onion. Return the casserole to the oven and bake for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Serve With: extra hot sauce and/or ranch dressing or sour cream!
