Chicken Bacon Ranch Potato Bake

The Chicken Bacon Ranch Potato Bake is a mouthwatering dish that combines the savory trio of chicken, bacon, and ranch with the comforting appeal of potatoes. This easy-to-make bake is a flavor-packed sensation, creating a harmonious marriage of textures and tastes that will have everyone coming back for seconds.

Begin by preparing boneless, skinless chicken breasts, seasoning them with a blend of ranch seasoning for a burst of zesty flavor. Brown the chicken in a skillet until golden, infusing it with a savory richness that will permeate the entire dish.

Meanwhile, gather potatoes and slice them into thin rounds, providing a hearty and satisfying base for the bake. Assemble the layers in a baking dish, alternating between the seasoned chicken, crispy bacon strips, and the thinly sliced potatoes. The bacon adds a smoky note that complements the savory chicken, while the potatoes provide a comforting and substantial foundation.

To tie everything together, drizzle ranch dressing over the layers, ensuring that the bake is enveloped in the creamy and herb-infused goodness of ranch. This step not only adds moisture but also amplifies the ranch flavor, creating a cohesive and indulgent experience. Bake the dish until the potatoes are tender and the flavors have melded into a delicious amalgamation. The result is a Chicken Bacon Ranch Potato Bake that boasts a golden crust, a creamy interior, and a symphony of flavors that dance on the palate.


  • 1.5 pounds baby gold potatoes
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • ½ cup prepared ranch dressing, divided use
  • 2 cups Mexican Cheese blend
  • 1 cup cooked and crumbled bacon

How To Make Chicken Bacon Ranch Potato Bake:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Spray a 9″x 13″ baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Dice the baby gold potatoes into 1-inch cubes. In a large bowl, mix together the diced potatoes, salt, pepper, and ¼ cup ranch dressing.
  3. Scoop the potatoes into the prepared baking dish. Bake the potatoes for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until almost thoroughly cooked (they won’t be fork-tender quite yet).
  4. While the potatoes are cooking, add the cubed chicken to the bowl you used for the potatoes and add salt, pepper, and the remaining ¼ cup ranch dressing.
  5. Once the potatoes have cooked for 30 minutes, remove the baking dish from the oven and lower the oven temperature to 400°F (200°C).
  6. Top the cooked potatoes with the raw marinated chicken. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil (Warning: Baking dish will be VERY hot, so use oven mitts to do this.)
  7. Place the baking dish back in the oven and cook for an additional 20 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked and has reached 165°F (74°C) internal temperature.
  8. Take the baking dish out of the oven and top with shredded cheese, bacon, and green onion.
  9. Place it back in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Serve this delectable bake as a wholesome family dinner or a crowd-pleasing dish at gatherings. Its winning combination of chicken, bacon, ranch, and potatoes ensures that each bite is a delightful celebration of comforting flavors and satisfying textures, making it a standout addition to your repertoire of go-to meals.
