Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like thier receipe, but I am afraid it may be too dried for the chickens. I like thier receipe, but I am afraid it may be too dried for the chickens. So what I do is added: * (Kraft) Tarter sauce (half from this bottle). * I usually gathered salad bars from Kroger; Bacon Ham onion black olive bread crumbs (inculde the favors) garlic salts and lot of peppers I used shredded potatos which is much easier to deforst quicker. here is what I do: mixed all the ingredients except chickens , bread crumbs and the cheeses. Then I sprinkle all bread crumbs and chesse. I feel that Tarter sauce give out a best flavor! U try it !! ; D

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely was amazed by how delicious this recipe was. I absolutely was amazed by how delicious this recipe was. I thought with the few ingredients it required it wouldn't be anything special--but it was. The bacon sure helped! Anything with bacon is sure to be a hit. I plan to make this recipe again soon for company--it's that good. I did use regular hash brown potatoes and added fresh onions and green peppers that I had on hand. Otherwise, I didn't change a thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I didn't have chicken breasts so used 4 pork chops. I didn't have chicken breasts so used 4 pork chops. I used shredded potatoes with onion & pepper, the ready bacon, & co-jack shredded cheese. I cooked the pork chops & set them aside, did the potatoes like the recipe said & added frozen corn & instead of putting the chops back on top of the potatoes, I put the cheese on and let the cheese melt into the potatoes & had the pork chops without cheese on top. It was very good. My family thought this was a "keeper"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Okay, so I tweaked the recipe a bit. Okay, so I tweaked the recipe a bit. I added a bit of salt seasoning to the chicken to give it more flavor. After I removed the chicken. I used real potatoes instead, and added red and green peppers, as well as a can of corn. Right before I put the chicken back I added about 1/4 (maybe a little less) of Kraft Zesty Italian dressing to moisten the potatoes a bit, and stirred it. It was very good and my husband really enjoyed it as well. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious! Delicious!! I couldn't find the potatoes with peppers and onions so I got a bag of hash browns and cut my own peppers. I used a half of each a red and green small pepper plus half of a small onion. they measured about 2 cups and then just added 2 cups of hash. I also didn't have bacon so I used the Real Bacon bacon pieces. I cooked the chicken then added the potatoes,peppers and onions. When that was done I added the bacon and topped with cheese. It tasted delicious! I bet it would work well with ham and some scrambled eggs as a breakfast dish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A big hit with the whole family! A big hit with the whole family! I did use some changes recommended by others though...I used hash browns versus the potato mix (my kids wouldn't go for the peppers in the other mix) and when I cooked the chicken, I used one of our favorite seasonings. I added a bit more bacon, as suggested. I was pretty liberal with the cheese topping since my kids love cheddar. Everyone requested the recipe become a regular.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good CONCEPT but bland and NEEDS A SAUCE. good CONCEPT but bland and NEEDS A SAUCE. cooked chicken in virgin olive oil w/salt and pepper, that helped. added about 1 Tbsp margarine to the potatoes, and also salt/pepper them. will do it again, maybe with salsa or some bbq sauce.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very bland! Very bland! I even added a little water, chili powder and garlic to it while cooking the chicken, and then dumped the juices onto the potatoes (which I cooked in another pan). It also took longer than indicated in the recipe. Luckily I made the potatoes in another pan - it helped to speed things along. Maybe I just needed to play with my own seasonings a little more?
