To me, there is something so comforting about a casserole. We rarely had them growing up but I've always loved them. Today is cold and rainy and a perfect day to serve one. This tasty potato bake was so simple and easy that you can even assemble it ahead of time. It was incredible!

One rotisserie chicken, chopped
8-10 medium potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

3/4 Cup BBQ Sauce
1 can chopped green chilies, drained
1 cup crumbled bacon

Preheat oven to 475F. In a large bowl mix together the olive oil, and onion soup mix. Add the cubed potatoes and stir to coat. . Bake the potatoes for 45-50 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes, until cooked through and browned on the outside.
