Chicken Bacon Ranch Potato Bake

I am really excited to share this recipe with you today. It turned out SO, so good! I mean really, you just can’t go wrong with potatoes, chicken, melty cheese and bacon. Amiright? This is definitely one of those all-in-one meals. I would serve with a crisp, green salad and call it done!

Easy and filling

I am using my favorite Little Potatoes in this. The Baby Boomer varietal is one of my favorites. It is a yellow creamer potato and it has a light and almost fluffy texture. You can microwave them for a quick side dish, roast them, grill them or you can cut them up and add them to make a more filling meal as I did here. This is definitely a must-make!
