JUST SNAPPED @littleswallowchinadoll

Try it Thursday: Seriously loaded potato and chicken bake

I wouldn't say I'm competitive exactly...I just like to win. 

To kick off the launch of one of our new products at work, Seriously Strong Cheese Sauce, we were all handed tubs and tasked with spicing up a recipe for a grand prize of champagne and bake ware. Frankly, I did it for the glory, not the prizes - but I certainly won't say no to champagne. 

Inspired by a recipe I've been seeing on pinterest lately from Cook Lisa Cook, I decided on a Seriously loaded potato and chicken bake (see what I did there? SERIOUSLY?!).

Throw whatever seasonings you have to hand into a bowl – I used crushed garlic, salt, ground pepper, Tabasco, crushed chilli flakes and paprika.

Mix into a marinade with olive oil.

Dice up potatoes (I left the skins on) and coat thoroughly with the mix.

Spread out in a single layer in an oven proof dish, and put into a 250C oven for around 35 minutes, tossing as necessary, until crispy.

While the potatoes are roasting, throw diced chicken fillets into the remaining mix, allowing them to marinade.

In a separate bowl, mix diced bacon, chopped green onions, and a handful of whatever hard cheese you have on hand – I used a mix of Seriously Strong Cheddars, obviously.


When the potatoes are done, pull them out of the oven and lay the raw marinated chicken over them.

Place dollops of Seriously Strong Cheese Sauce around the dish – use as much or little as you like.

Cover the lot with the bacon mix and pop back into the oven, reducing the temperature to 200C for 30 – 35 minutes until chicken is cooked through.

Serve up with a simple side salad and enjoy!

Fingers crossed for the winners announcement tomorrow...
