Loaded Baked Potato Chicken

Monday, October 9, 2017

My household eats alot of chicken. I wouldn't say that they are picky eaters, but they do have their favorites. And chicken is high on that list. I sometimes have trouble coming up with different  ways to prepare it, so that they don't get bored. This recipe for loaded baked potato chicken is a perfect meal. Because the potatoes are on the chicken, I just make a side ( usually green beans) and a small salad and dinner is served. You  can make this recipe your own by switching up the cheeses and adding other traditional baked potato toppings, like sour cream.  I think adding small broccoli florets would be great as well. I will do that the next time I make this dish. And I will definitely make it again!
*I use reduced fat cheddar (Cabot brand) and turkey bacon to lighten it up a bit.
