Easy One-Pot Oven Baked Dinner Recipe with Chicken

Prep time: 10 minutes — Cook time: 35 minutes — Total time: 45 minutes — Serving: 2 people



Recipe for a creamy one-pot potato casserole with scalloped potatoes, bacon wrapped chicken breast, and lots of vegetables. A super easy and quick dinner recipe with chicken that’s perfect after a long day at work.



2.2 lb (1 kg) scalloped potatoes, pre-made

0.5 red bell pepper

0.5 red onion

0.5 leek

11.46 oz (325 g) chicken breast

0.5 pack of bacon strips

1 tablespoon vegetable oil




  1. Preheat oven to 390 F (200 C).
  2. Grease up an oven-safe casserole and add your scalloped potatoes in it.
  3. Grab your favorite sharp KUMA kitchen knife and slice leek into fine pieces, bell pepper into strips, and cut red onion into thin wedges.
  4. Add the veggies to the scalloped potatoes and stir to mix.
  5. Trim chicken breast from any parts you may not want to eat. If your chicken breasts are very thick, you can consider slicing them in half to get thinner filets.
  6. Wrap a bacon strip around each piece of chicken you have. Then place chicken on top of the potatoes.
  7. Bake the casserole in the preheated oven for 25-35 minutes.
  8. Remove casserole from oven when done cooking and let it rest for 5 minutes.
  9. Chop parsley to fine pieces and add as garnish on top.
  10. Enjoy!


Easy one-pot dinner recipe with oven-baked potatoes and chicken

Quick and easy dinner with store bought creamy scalloped potatoes and chicken wrapped in bacon. The most work you have to do here is cut your veggies, and being equipped with that razor sharp KUMA knife of yours, that’s no big deal at all!

This is the perfect dinner to make when you want it to be fast without compromising on the awesome flavor. It’s great as a weeknight dinner or you can even serve it in the weekend as a fancy dinner. Lot’s of nice tips and tricks here! 

The creamy potatoes add a lot of lovely texture and mouthfeel to the dish. We then add in some fresh vegetables to compliment all the cream which make the dish taste even better while serving as a great way to sneak in some greens. We have used leek, bell pepper, and onion but you can also use things like zucchini, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, beans, peas, and things of that nature.

Store bought scalloped potatoes versus homemade?

Homemade is always delicious and if you want to opt for that, we have the world’s best scalloped potatoes recipe right here! The trick with our One-Pot Scalloped Potato Casserole recipe here, though, is to make it insanely quick and easy for you to make. Therefore we have opted for the store bought potatoes in our recipe. You can get some that taste amazing and they will be just fine for a dish like this.

Everything in one casserole. Dinner the easy way.

It is super quick to whip all the ingredients together and then you just place everything in the same casserole in the oven and let it mind its own business. We simply love such easy one-pot recipes! You then have much less cleaning up to do, and while the casserole is baking you can do your cleaning at the same time. Hello there, optimal time management! 

Can I replace the bacon with something else?

Yes, you could for example replace the bacon with Serrano ham. Serrano is a great bacon alternative that is less greasy but still gets that crispy bite to it. You can also choose to not wrap your chicken in anything which will turn out just fine as well, but we do like that extra element wrapping it gives. It also makes it seem more fancy, which is yet another little cheat code trick considering how easy it is to do!

Easy prep meal ideas

Meal prepping is super popular these days and for good reason! You can save a lot of time and money by buying and cooking in bulk, which is also why our KUMA meal plans are so popular. This one pot meal can easily be meal prepped. Simply grab your food containers and stack a portion of your potatoes in the bottom and top with a chicken breast - exactly the same way as you first built your casserole layers. It’ll last in the fridge for a few days or you can choose to freeze it to expend the longevity of the food.
