  • Bake the potatoes for 45-50 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes, until cooked through and crispy and browned on the outside. 
  • While the potatoes are cooking, add the cubed chicken to the bowl with the left over olive oil/hot sauce mixture and stir to coat. 
  • Once the potatoes are fully cooked, remove from the oven and lower the oven temperature to 400 degrees. 
  • Top the cooked potatoes with the raw marinated chicken. 
  • In a bowl mix together the cheese, bacon and green onion and top the raw chicken with the cheese mixture. 
  • Return the casserole to the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and the topping is bubbly delicious.
