Chicken & Roasted Red Potatoes

"This is a Kraft recipe I found on their website. Although I love chicken thighs, I thought they would be too greasy with this recipe so I used boneless and skinless chicken breasts. This recipe turned out perfect and the family loved it."

    This recipe was fabulous if you like your meat and potatoes! I used boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into small slices so they were well marinated, and I only had beef bacon, so I used that instead of regular bacon. After frying up the bacon I also used a little chicken broth to deglaze the pan. Then after adding the potatoes I was sure to salt well and add some pepper. The chicken was moist, and there were enough drippings in the bottom of the pan to spoon over the finished product. <br/>This will be going in our monthly meal planner! Great recipe!

    Love this recipe. I added Franks Buffalo Hot sauce to my ranch dressing marinade. Also added granulated garlic, smoked paprika, and a dash of salt & ground pepper to my potatoes. Yum!

    I've made this several times. I prefer to leave the skin on the chicken and top each piece with a slice of swiss, so good.
