Roasted Garlic Asiago Chicken & Potatoes
It’s no secret that I love anything cheesy.
Mr. HH even picked me up with a cheesy line when we were teens. ‘Drop the zero & go with the hero’.
See, I’m a lost cause.
Um. What was I talking about? I was just totally distracted by this ^^^. Cheesy, garlic-y goodness. Crazy good!
This is one of those recipes that I made up on a pantry challenge – I found a whole block of asiago cheese in my refrigerator. Yes, I found it…which means I had previously forgotten about it. Which I don’t understand because honestly, how can anyone forget about cheese? Especially when that someone is me, a self declared cheese addict. (weekly meetings of the Cheeseaholics Anonymous takes place in my kitchen, beside the fridge – every day. Bring cheese)
Pretty much your whole meal is in this dish. Just toss a salad to go along with it, and you’re good to go. Dinner is served…. and it’s delicious!
First thing, you need to roast your garlic. Yo will need 2 whole heads of garlic. Gotta keep those vampires away, you know? Cut the top off of each head, place on a square of aluminum foil, & drizzle with olive oil. Close each up like a little purse full of garlic, and cook it on 350 for an hour. You can also do individual cloves if that’s the kind of garlic you buy, sort of like I did here – but the flavor won’t be as garlic-y.
Now, get your diced potatoes in the oven. You can leave the skin on or take it off, it’s totally up to you. Season them with salt & pepper – or use a seasoning blend. I really like the garlic & herb kind from Weber. Cover them with tinfoil, and bake for about 40 minutes.
Meanwhile, start on your chicken. Season it with a little salt & pepper, & sear it on each side.
Set the chicken aside.
Now, it’s time to make the best part of all. The roasted garlic & asiago cheese topping – yum!
Combine the roasted garlic, asiago, sour cream, cream cheese, & milk.
Now – let’s finish this up!
Take the potatoes out of the oven & uncover them. Nestle the chicken breasts in with the potatoes.
Dollop the cheese mixture all on top of the chicken & potatoes.
Sprinkle with mozzarella & parsley.
Bake uncovered for 20 minutes.
Now, I like to sprinkle mine with a few strips of crumbled up crispy bacon but that’s totally optional. Ok, you got me – bacon is never optional. Totally mandatory.

This looks delicious! I have never tried asiago cheese though. What would it be similar to?
It’s similar to Parmesan and Romano – but a little sweeter.
Thanks! I will definitely be trying this!
Looks and sounds divine! I cannot cook without garlic. 🙂

Do you cook the chicken until done or just brown (sear) it on each side?
Made it last night and it was wonderful! With bacon of course. I will be making this again. Thanks for sharing. B. Karr
