I made this last night for dinner and it was wonderful, relatively quick and easy to make. I used white meat chicken tenders so the baking time was cut down. Everyone loved it but I think the next time I prepare it I will use more bacon. You can never have too much bacon or cheese in a dish where I am concerned. Everyone raved on about how good the potatoes were. I might just make the potatoes as a great side dish to other meats too.

This reminded me some of Alice Springs Chicken from Outback Steakhouse, but it needs some improvements to be as good as that. My 3 main commetns are: 1) I didn't get any flavor out of the ranch dressing as a marinade. 2) I think you could use any shredded cheddar on this, not just the specific one they suggested. 3) And I would definitely NOT use thighs on the bone again. It was too much work for this type of dish to fight with bone. I would make this again but with the suggested changes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not as good as it looks, but fairly fast and easy to prepare I made this recipe following all the directions accurately. The chicken pieces were small, but the baking time was way off. My casserole needed an extra 15 minutes. The potatoes were still underdone and the cheese on the top was too brown and crusty after being in the oven so long. I thought the Ranch dressing would flavor it more, but it just wasn't very tasty.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This recipe was pretty good. This recipe was pretty good. I used chicken breasts instead and the meat was sooo juicy.I marinated the meat over night and while I was at work. I added mrs dash garlic and herb season salt to the potatoes and onions and then sprinkles some over top of the chicken. Also used the whole bag of cheese. Next time I will use more bacon. I also didnt have parsley, next time I may try that too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little bland but easy to make This was a little bland but if I add some salt and pepper before marinating and add to the onion & potatoes it might be better. I did let the chicken marinate all night. I didn't add the cheese until after the chicken was cooked. I sprinkled the cheese on the chicken then put it back in the oven for about 3 minutes to let the cheese melt. I will try this recipe again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious !!!! I made this last night and it was fantastic ! I used bone in thigh that were kind of large. I left a little of the ranch on the chicken, added some seasoning and some barbecue sauce. I cooked for 1 hr 15 min with loosely covered foil, turned the oven down to 180 smeared some cream cheese added cheddar and then baked for another 15 min. Awesome !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this last night, as is, didn't change a thing. I made this last night, as is, didn't change a thing. It was wonderful! I had to prep the night before, cooked the bacon, taters and onions and put in dish then in fridge. Marinaded the chicken overnight. We all really liked it, even my very picky son. I think a dab of BBQ sauce might be good on top too. Will definitely make again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good flavor! Very good flavor! I wasn't sure about the thighs but they were excellent. I love red potatoes so this will be a keeper. I did add buffalo sauce to the ranch and couldn't taste it, so I might add more than 1/2 tsp next time, like the magazine said. Overall, was very flavorful and our family loved it. Even my picky 2 yr old.
