Potatoes, chicken and corn coated with French onion dip, seasonings, bacon crumbles and cheese. An easy to make but delicious to eat dinner!


  • 1 1/2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, thinly sliced into quarter inch rounds
  • 34 cups cooked, seasoned chicken (see note)
  • 1 cup sour cream based French onion dip
  • 1 (16 oz) can corn, drained
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/3 cup bacon crumbles
  • 4 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 green onions, sliced thin


Instant Pot Instructions:

  1. Pour 1 ½ cups water into bottom of Instant Pot. Add potatoes into a steamer basket. Lower the steamer basket into the Instant Pot. Cover Instant Pot and secure the lid. Make sure valve is set to sealing. Set the manual/pressure cook button to 1 minute. When time is up move valve to venting and remove lid. 
  2. Move steamer basket out of the Instant Pot. Discard the water. Dump potatoes into bottom of Instant Pot. Add in cooked chicken, French onion dip, corn, garlic powder, salt, pepper, paprika, bacon crumbles and half of the cheese. Gently stir to coat. 
  3. If you have an air fryer lid: sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top. Place air fryer lid on top. Cook for 5 minutes at 350° F. If you don’t have an air fryer lid: scrape the mixture into a baking dish. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top. Bake in the oven at 400° F for 15 minutes.
  4. Top with green onions and serve. 

Slow Cooker Instructions:

  1. Add a half cup of broth, potatoes, chicken, corn, garlic powder, salt, pepper and paprika into slow cooker. Toss well. 
  2. Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours, or until potatoes are tender. 
  3. Stir in the french onion dip and bacon and half of cheese.
  4. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top and let melt.
  5. Top with green onions and serve. 


Rotisserie chicken works well for this recipe. You can also cook chicken in an Instant Pot ahead of time for this recipe. Add 1 ½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts and/or thighs into the Instant Pot with 1 cup of water. Sprinkle the chicken with seasonings you love (I used McCormick rotisserie chicken seasoning). Pressure cook for 10 minute (for fresh) or 12 minutes (for frozen). Use a 10 minute natural pressure release. Shred or chop the chicken.
