I Like It Loaded

I don't know about you, but I'm ALL over any kinda recipe that you can make in one pot/skillet/dish.  Those are my favorite.  Mostly because they're the easiest to clean up, but they taste pretty dang delicious, too!!!  One of my favorite all-in-one meals is this TO.DIE.FOR recipe.  Can't remember where I found it, but I jazzed it up just a bit to give it a little extra oomph and omiword...AMAZING!!!!!



3 medium potatoes, peeled & cubed

4-6 strips of bacon, cooked & crumbled

2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed

1 tbsp. olive oil

1 small yellow onion, diced

1 red bell pepper, diced

1 green bell pepper, diced

2 cups monterrey jack cheese, shredded


sour cream

green onions

salt & pepper

cajun seasoning


Cook bacon {I prefer baking much easier!!}.  While bacon cooks, peel and cube potatoes. Boil on stovetop and remove from heat when cooked {soft & mushy}.  In a large skillet, cook chicken until brown on both sides and no more pink inside.  Remove from heat & cut into cubes.  In the same skillet, heat olive oil and add onions & peppers.  Mmmmm...smells heavenly right about now. 


Add potatoes to the pepper/onion mix and cook for another 3-5 minutes. {This is where I added a few dashes of my favorite cajun seasoning…Tony Chachere’s…because I wanted to add a little kick :)}


Add chicken, bacon, and cheese.


Cover the skillet with a lid and remove when cheese is melted.


Season with salt and pepper...serve & ENJOY {because you will!!!}


I topped mine off with some sour cream and green onions and I might as well have been in heaven.  Every single bite was tastier than the one before.  Y'all...this is so flippin' good.  I only added 2 chicken breasts, but next time I'll add 3-4.  Of course, if you're wanting to eat this as a little side dish, leave out the meat altogether and serve alongside a juicy, medium rare steak instead :)  Put this on the menu soon.  With summer cookouts just around the corner, you'll definitely want to have this recipe in your arsenal!!!

  3. Made this for dinner last night and added some Ro-tel, just for fun :) SO GOOD! Thanks!

  4. Made this last night...definitely a keeper! Think I may cook the chicken with some taco seasoning next time. I like the Rotel idea from the previous comment too.

  5. I made this last week for dinner and it was a HUGE hit with my family and there were NO leftovers by the time we went to bed. Heavenly! And I love your blog!!

  6. just saw this on Pinterest. looks delish - dinner tonight!

  7. There's a place where I live that serves something similar, but as one of those skillet breakfasts.

    They top it with green chiles before the cheese, then scrambled egg whites on top & it is my FAVE breakfast. YUM!
