If you’re looking for a crowd winning side dish to bring to your next pot luck, this Chicken Bacon Ranch Potato Salad is it!
A potato salad is a staple at any bbq or pot luck gathering, and this one is seriously on top of it’s game.
I’ve loaded this potato salad with crispy fried chicken (I purchased some fried chicken tenders at my grocer’s deli), crispy bacon pieces and a cool ranch dressing.
You could use any type of potato for this salad, but I chose some classic baking potatoes.
I just boiled them whole, let them cool then the peels came off super easy. Cut the potatoes into small bite-size pieces and place them in a large bowl.
Toss the potatoes in the dressing, which is super simple to make. Just a little ranch dressing and mayo.
Seriously so good guys!
Toss in the chicken and bacon, then stir gently to coat.
If you’re not into fried chicken, you could always use a shredded rotisserie chicken.
I think what I love the most about this super simple salad is that it only takes 5 ingredients to make!
It was a meal to remember!
