Baked Potato Rounds & Bacon Wrapped Smokehouse Maple Chicken {Recipes}


Baked Potato Rounds

4 large baking potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch slices
1/4 cup melted butter
salt and pepper to taste
garlic powder (optional)*
4-5 slices bacon, sliced and cooked
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
chopped green onions (optional)*
sour cream or ranch dressing (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Brush both sides of potato slices with butter and set on parchment lined baking sheet; sprinkle on salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  Bake in preheated oven for 30 - 40 minutes, or until cooked through, and lightly browned, turning once.

When potatoes are ready, top with bacon, cheese, and green onions; continue baking until the cheese has melted.  Serve with sour cream or ranch dressing if desired.

*My dad and some of my brothers do not like garlic or onions, so I made a pan without those things.

(For our family, I made 3 pans of potatoes - approx. 3 batches.)

Bacon Wrapped Smokehouse Maple Chicken

Chicken tenders*
Bacon slices**
Smokehouse Maple Seasoning

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Sprinkle both sides of chicken tenders with smokehouse maple seasoning, then wrap each piece of chicken in a slice of bacon.  Place on foil-lined pan and sprinkle more smokehouse maple seasoning on the top.  Bake for 30 minutes (??) or until cooked through.  Broil at the end to crisp up the bacon.  Turn the chicken over to crisp up the other side, too.

*The original recipe called for chicken thighs, but I just used chicken tenders and it was still very delicious!!
**You need the same number of bacon slices as chicken tenders.  
For our family, we used a 3-pound bag of chicken.


***********

Both the potatoes and chicken were absolutely delicious!  As my Dad says - he'd give it two thumbs up:)

This is one of my "new" recipes that turned out VERY well!!  I think anyone in my family would recommend that you try them:)  Well, except a couple of the boys didn't like the seasoning on the chicken, but pretty much everyone liked it!!

Have a wonderful day and try some new recipes!

Ashley - Smokehouse Maple Seasoning is McCormick brand. I think we got this at Winco, but you can probably get it at any grocery store.
