Jump to Recipe

One-pan-meals are my absolute favorite during the weekdays. I’m usually tired after a day of work and the last thing I want to do is a bunch of dishes after cooking. This meal is always a lifesaver and my family loves it!

Not only is this super delicious, it’s so ridiculously easy to throw together (I think I have it down to nearly 5 minutes of prep). The ingredients are minimal and I usually have them on hand.

I layer sliced onions, then the potatoes, the chicken pieces (thigh or breast meat) a little bacon, and a super easy ranch sauce that makes this dish so flavorful. Top with a little cheese and that’s it! So much flavor!



Baked Ranch Chicken and Potatoes is comforting and perfect for a cozy night in. Serve with a simple green salad and you’re all set!

Equipment

  • 1 9×13-inch baking dish sprayed with non-stick cooking spray

Ingredients
  

  • 1 small yellow onion cut in slices
  • 3-4 russet potatoes, peeled and cut in 1-inch pieces (about 3 cups)
  • 4-5 large boneless skinless chicken thighs or 4 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 slices uncooked bacon cut in small pieces
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 3/4 cup Reduced-fat cheddar cheese optional
  • Sliced green onions optional

Ranch sauce

  • 1/4 cup half & half or heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp light sour cream
  • 2 tsp ranch seasoning mix
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

Instructions
 

Preheat oven to 350°F

  • Combine all the Ranch Sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Add sliced onions in single layer to prepared baking dish.
  • Scatter potatoes over the top of the onions. Do not stir together.
  • Place chicken thighs or breasts on top of potatoes, nestling them down a bit so the chicken is level with potatoes.
  • Evenly place bacon pieces over the top of the chicken and potatoes, then dot with butter.
  • Pour sauce evenly over the top of everything. It won't seem like enough but it is. Trust me!
  • Cover tightly with foil and place in preheated oven for 1 hour or until potatoes are soft and chicken is cooked through to 165°.
  • Remove foil and add cheese if desired and cook another 10 minutes. Top with sliced green onions and serve!
