1 kg of chicken breast, cubed
8 potatoes, cubed
1/3 cup olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons of salt
1 tablespoon fresh ground pepper
1 tablespoon paprika
2 tablespoons garlic powder
6 tablespoons hot sauce
2 cups grated cheese
1 cup crumbled bacon
1 cup diced green onion
Preheat the oven to 500°F (260°C).
In a large bowl, create a zesty marinade by mixing olive oil, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and hot sauce.
Cube the potatoes and add them to the bowl, ensuring they are well-coated with the flavorful sauce.
Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray and transfer the potatoes, leaving excess sauce in the bowl.
Bake the potatoes for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes for even cooking.
While the potatoes are baking, cube the chicken and add it to the bowl with the remaining marinade. Ensure the chicken is thoroughly coated.
In a separate small bowl, combine grated cheese, crumbled bacon, and diced green onion.
Once the potatoes are cooked, add the uncooked marinated chicken to the baking dish.
Spread the cheese mixture generously on top of the chicken.
Bake for an additional 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through, and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
Serve hot, and enjoy the flavor explosion!
