Questions & Replies

  1. what size baking dish should be used?
  2. Can this be tweaked for the crockpot?
  3. What sides goes good with this?
  4. Can this be reheated in a microwave or does it go mushy?


  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. 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/
  4. Very good recipe, but I had to make a few adjustments. First I doubled the oil to 2/3 cup to have enough for both potatoes and chicken. I sauted my chicken in the bacon grease for about 5-7 minutes so they would be done when cooked in the oven. 15 minutes isn't long enough for the chicken to be well done. And lastley I added the green onions after cooking to add a fresh element. After these few minor changes this recipe was very delicious and a big hit. Definitely will make again.
  5. Bake at 500 if you want to set your house on fire. Otherwise set at 375 and it will turn out perfect. No clue what maniac wrote this at 500 and thought it was ok.


  1. Chipotle Tabasco!!

  2. I love the recipe the only things i did differently was temp down to 350 ...500 seemed way too high to begin with.... and next time i would recommend less salt.... the bacon and cheese give it enough salt as it is ....mine came out a little too salty for my taste but next time i will try with less salt and see how it turns out :)
  3. So I tweaked this recipe a little bit. Added homegrown habanero pepper, bowtie noodles, mozzarella cheese and secret seasonings ^_^. Defiantly has a kick! Absolutely delicious.

  4. My boys love this recipe! I tweak it by making the Buffalo chicken dip and adding into the potatoes bacon and chicken. Adding sour cream cream cheese and ranch or blue cheese dressing.
  5. Added a pack of Hidden Valley ranch seasoning ... and decreased the hot sauce by half.
