- 2-3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
- 8-10 medium russet potatoes skin on and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
- 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

In a large bowl mix together olive oil, hot sauce, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika.
Add the cubed potatoes and stir to evenly coat.
Add the potatoes to a greased 9x13 baking dish, leaving behind any extra hot sauce mix in the bowl.
Bake the potatoes at 500 degrees for 45-50 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes, until cooked through and crispy on the outside.
Add the diced chicken to bowl and stir to evenly coat all the chicken, allowing chicken to marinate as the potatoes bake.

Top the raw, marinated chicken and potatoes with the topping ingredients.
Bake 15 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the topping is melted and bubbly.
Serve with extra hot sauce, ketchup, ranch dressing, or sour cream as desired.
