  • Remove chicken from skillet; set aside. Add potatoes, garlic and thyme to skillet; cook 2 min., stirring frequently. Return chicken to skillet; cover with foil.
  • Bake 30 min. Meanwhile, combine coating mix, bacon and paprika in medium bowl. Stir in cheese.
  • Top chicken with apples and cheese mixture. Bake, uncovered, 10 to 15 min. or until potatoes and apples are tender, and chicken is done (165ºF).

Special Equipment Needed

Size Wise

Balance out this sweet and savory chicken with your favorite steamed fresh vegetable, or a crisp mixed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Lite Dressing.


We really love this recipe which was originally developed using our recently discontinued FRESH TAKE Cheese Bread Crumb Mix. We revised it to use KRAFT Shredded Cheese, SHAKE 'N BAKE Coating Mix and seasonings. Our Kraft Kitchens team has developed substitutions for the entire FRESH TAKE lineup so that you can continue to enjoy the great taste of these products.

If you don't have an ovenproof skillet, you can use a regular skillet instead. Just wrap the handle with several layers of foil before using as directed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This is pretty good but I wouldnt make it again. This is pretty good but I wouldnt make it again. I used regular potatoes and hands down the potatoes were the best part. The apples were weird, i didnt like the soft texture.
