  • 1 tsp. paprika or smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme leaves
  • 1/2 tsp. salt, divided
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 boneless chicken breast halves, skinned if desired
  • 4 tsp. butter or olive oil, divided
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pkg. (1 lb. 4 oz.) refrigerated red potato wedges
  • 1/4 cup real bacon bits or crumbled cooked bacon
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Double Cheddar Cheese
  1. Combine paprika, thyme and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and pepper; rub over chicken breasts.
  2. Melt 2 teaspoons butter in a 12-inch nonstick ovenproof (wrap handle in foil) skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, skin sides down; cook 2 minutes. Sprinkle garlic over chicken; reduce heat to medium, turn chicken and cook 2 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate; set aside.
  3. Melt remaining 2 teaspoons butter in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Add potatoes and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; stir-fry 4 minutes or until potatoes are beginning to brown. Turn off heat; push potatoes to edges of skillet. Return chicken with any accumulated juices to skillet.
  4. Transfer the skillet to a preheated 400°F oven and bake 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and potatoes are tender. Sprinkle cheese and bacon over chicken and potatoes; return to oven and bake 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.
