 The Ingredients

White sweet potato (or regular potato)

I used white sweet potato in this recipe, however, you can also use orange sweet potato or regular potato if you tolerate that.

Chicken

I used chicken breast, but you can also use chicken thigh.

Coconut milk

You’ll marinate the chicken in the coconut milk ahead of time. This helps keep the chicken from drying out.

Ranch

You can make a homemade ranch dressing to keep it AIP, or you can use a storebought compliant ranch like primal kitchen ranch.

Nutritional yeast 

You’ll usually find a bacon ranch casserole topped with cheese, but this still gives it that cheesy flavor without the dairy.

Bacon, chives and green onion

It’s not a bacon ranch casserole without these to top it off!!
