It would have been very tasty if the potatoes hadn't burned. 500 degrees is not necessary. I didn't even bake it the full 45 minutes. The oven was so hot that I shut it off before I added the chicken and toppings and they still were done in 9 minutes. I'll make this again but I'll be baking it at 375.

No, 500 degrees is not a typo, as several people have asked in the Q & A forum. See original recipe at http://www.quickneasyrecipes.net/loaded-baked-potato-chicken-casserole/

Awesome! I made it the first time like the directions said and some of the potatoes burnt (I have a strong oven though) tonight I decided to make it again but in the crockpot! I just mixed the "sauce" and put in the potatoes like it said, added those to the bottom of the crockpot, added a bit of olive oil to the remaining sauce, mixed in the chicken, and layer it on top of the potatoes. Set on low for a few hours and high for the last 1-2 hours. Delish!! Oh, and we didn't use hot sauce, due to the little one :) Love this!
