Loaded Baked Potato & Chicken Casserole

So I decided to share this amazing recipe that we got from Tara’s mom, here you go!

Loaded Baked Potato & Chicken Casserole

  • 2 lbs. chicken breasts, cubed
  • 10-12 small red potatoes, diced
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 cups mexican blend cheese
  • 1/2 cup crumbled bacon
  • 1/2 cup green onion, chopped

Preheat oven to 475. In a large bowl, mix together olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Add potatoes and coat with mixture. Place potatoes into a greased baking dish, leave as much of the mix as possible. Bake potatoes for 1 hour, flipping every 15-20 minutes. Check with fork to ensure potatoes are done. While potatoes are baking, coat chicken with remaining mixture and cook in skillet over medium heat until chicken is done. Remove potatoes from oven and reduce heat to 400. Add chicken, bacon, green onions to potatoes and distribute evenly in dish. Top with cheese and place in oven for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve with sour cream or ranch dressing (optional).

Hope you enjoy the casserole, we just made it tonight for dinner and it was amazing.


The End of Falling Flat…

Well it has been over two years since Aron and I posted an episode and just recently the domain expired (it was not under my personal control) and is now some Japanese landing page.  I am not going to try and get the domain back and I haven’t heard from Aron in forever – so I am calling it quits with trying to continue to attempt to produce the podcast.

For those of you that did subscribe and listen to us each week – thank you, it means that we weren’t doing it all for nothing.

There are still t-shirts available if anyone is interested in one, both large and extra large sizes available.  Shoot me an email if you are interested.

Well, it is back to the daily grind for me.  If anyone is interested in collaborating on a new project or looking for a guest for a current podcast, give me a shout.

Cheers gang!

The Countdown…

If we are friends on Facebook, then you most likely have seen my status updates involving a countdown.  Many people have been speculating about what this countdown is related to, some are thinking I am getting married, others think I am moving and some even think I am going to be a father!  I find it funny how many rumors there are and I guess it is about time that I squash them all.

Back in December, I got one of the best Christmas presents ever from Tara – a pair of tickets to a Buffalo Sabres game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.  Knowing that Tara is not much of a hockey fan, this is an amazing gift from her and we are going to be spending the weekend together at the end of March in Buffalo.  The gift is more than just a pair of tickets, it shows me that Tara is willing to take an interest in something that I love and wants to spend the time together cheering on my favorite NHL team.

So, there you have it.  I am not moving, getting married or becoming a father.  I am counting down to a weekend away in Buffalo with the person that means so much to me and I am really excited to spend the weekend away from work and just enjoy life :)
