Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl combine the first 9 ingredients (through black pepper). Transfer mixture to a greased 3-qt. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, for 25 minutes. Stir and top with cheddar, mozzarella, and Parmesan cheese. Bake 10 minutes more. Top with bacon and, if desired, tomato and green onions before serving.



To prepare chicken: Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with foil. Drizzle three 6-oz. skinless, boneless chicken breast halves with olive oil and place in a cold oven. Set oven temperature to 450°F and bake 25 to 30 minutes or until chicken hits 165°F. (Because ovens and the size of chicken breasts vary, temperature is the best way to test for doneness). Cool and chop chicken. Place in an airtight container and refrigerate up to 3 days.To prepare bacon: Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with foil. Place a cooling rack over pan. Lay bacon slices on rack and bake at 425°F for 15 to 20 minutes or bacon is browned and crisp. Cool and crumble bacon. Place in a airtight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
