Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400F. Grease a 8 by 11 inch baking dish with 1 teaspoon of butter and set aside.  Bring a pot of water to a boil, add 1 tablespoon of sea salt and sliced potatoes. Bring it to a boil and cook for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes drain the water and set aside.

Step 2

Next, in the skillet add bacon and saute for 5 minutes, stirring few times (remove bacon grease if you wish, I like to cook with it and leave it in the skillet). After add 2 tablespoon of butter and onion to the bacon and cook for another 5 minutes, stirring few times.

Step 3

Next pour in 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream and 3/4 teaspoon of ground pepper, thyme and salt (if needed). Bring it to a gentle boil, add 1/2 cup of cheese and simmer on very low until cheese melts.

Step 4

Assemble the casserole by layering chicken on the bottom and adding potatoes on top. Pour the cheese sauce over potato and sprinkle the rest of shredded cheese over the top.

Step 5

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden color and potatoes with chicken are cooked thru. Garnish with any greens of your choice. Enjoy!
