Let's Make It
Heat oven to 400ºF.
Mix cream cheese spread and pepper until blended. Gently insert your fingers under the chicken skin to pull it away from the chicken. Spoon cream cheese mixture under skin. Place on rack in roasting pan. Bake 30 min.
Meanwhile, prick potatoes with fork. Microwave on HIGH 2 to 3 min. just until potatoes can easily be sliced. Cut potatoes into 1/2-inch pieces; place in bowl. Add 2 Tbsp. dressing; mix lightly.
Add potatoes to pan with chicken; brush chicken with remaining dressing. Bake 30 min. or until chicken is done (165ºF) and potatoes are tender.
Serve chicken with your favorite flavor of prepared STOVE TOP Stuffing Mix.
When purchasing a chicken, look for one with a moist skin, tender flesh and fresh smell. Make sure that the chicken is very cold to the touch and that the package is not torn or leaking. Place chicken package inside a plastic bag before placing in the grocery cart to keep any juices from touching other food items.
How to Check Meat and Poultry Doneness
The easiest way to ensure that cooked meat or poultry is done is to check the internal temperature. Using an accurate food thermometer will take away the guesswork. Simply insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the meat or poultry, avoiding any bones if present. For whole poultry, insert the thermometer into the thickest part of one of the thighs, again taking care to avoid any bones.
