This Chicken Bacon Ranch Potato
Casserole is another variation of the famous hash brown casserole, and is so delicious.
Summer means lots of cook-outs and parties that involve taking a covered dish. I always take several dishes to anything that I am invited to, and one of them is usually the hash brown casserole. It is such a great recipe and I keep thinking of other ingredients I could add to it for some variation. This Chicken Bacon Ranch Potato
Casserole can actually be served as a one dish meal as well as a side.
Ingredients. The bowl of chicken seems to be hiding behind the ranch dressing packet.
Place the Potatoes O’ Brien, butter, salt, pepper, soup, and sour cream in a large mixing bowl.
Sprinkle a package of Hidden Valley Ranch Original Dressing Mix over the ingredients. Add half of the cheese.
Stir to combine.
Add chopped rotisserie chicken, bacon, and 2 cups of cheese.
Stir all ingredients together well.
Transfer to a large baking dish that has been sprayed with a no stick cooking spray. If you are taking this to a cook-out, use a disposable aluminum pan. I double the pans because this casserole is so heavy.
Top with remaining cheese.
Bake about 50 minutes. Serve warm.
The day we ate this for supper, I served it as a one pan meal. It could be put together a day in advance or earlier in the day, and then baked when needed.
