Ingredients

  • 12 ounce Fully Cooked Refrigerated Grilled Chicken Breast Strips

  • 1-1/2 pound sweet potatoes, 2-3 whole potatoes

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

  • 1/2 cup chicken broth, unsalted

  • 6 ounce light spreadable Swiss cheese

  • 4 slice bacon, cooked, crumbled

  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded, diced

  • 1/4 cup green onion, sliced

Cooking Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Peel potatoes and boil for 20-30 minutes or until tender when tested with fork.  Drain and cool.  Once cooled cut potatoes into 1" cubes and place into a 9"x13" baking dish.
  • While potatoes are cooking, heat cream and chicken stock in a small sauce pan over medium-high heat.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce mixture by half, continuously whisking to prevent burning, this will take approximately 5-7 minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in cheese until melted. 
  • Top potatoes with chicken, bacon, jalapeno and cream mixture.  Cover and bake for 20 minutes.  Uncover, stir and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes.  Top with green onions.
