  3. In a large skillet while chicken is marinating cook bacon until crispy; set aside on paper toweling to drain. Reserve one tablespoon of the bacon fat in the skillet.
  4. In the now empty skillet with the bacon fat cook the onion and potato over medium high heat for about 5 minutes. ( I cooked the mixture long enough for the potatoes to start to brown)
  5. Crumble the bacon and gently mix it into the potato mixture. Spoon potato mixture into a lightly sprayed 13x9 casserole dish, remove the chicken from the marinade and arrange the thighs on top of the potato mixture. Bake for 55 min to an hour, or until chicken is done.
