Loaded Baked Potato & Chicken Casserole

So this was very very delicious!  I had my plate minus the bacon and chicken but the rest of the family had it with it and this whole dish was cleaned up, not a drop left in the baking dish!
If you love twice baked potatoes you will LOVE LOVE this recipe!

2 lbs chicken breasts, cubed or shredded
10-12 small red potatoes diced
1/2 cup olive oil
1  tsp. salt
1 TBS. freshly ground pepper
1/2 TBS. garlic powder 
2 c. Mexican Blend Cheese
1/2 c. crumbled bacon 
1/2 c. chopped green onion 

Preheat your oven to 475.  In a large bowl, mix together olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder.  Add the potatoes and coat with mixture.  Place the potatoes into a greased baking dish, leave as much of the mix as possible.  Bake potatoes for 1 hr, flip the potatoes every 15-20 mins. Check with a fork to ensure the potatoes are done.  While the potatoes are baking, coat the chicken with the left over mixture and cook in a skillet over medium heat, until the chicken is done (no longer pink inside!)  Once the potatoes are done, take them out of the oven and turn the oven temperature down to 400.  Add the chicken, cheese, bacon & green onions. Put the casserole back in the oven and bake for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.  Serve with sour cream  or ranch dressing
