I love good one dish meals. There is less clean up and they can be a real time saver. Bacon-wrapped chicken thighs with baby red potatoes, roasted with onions and herbs, a very delicious and simple dinner. I used chicken thighs in this recipe. I am sure any style of chicken pieces would work as well. I was a little nervous when I seasoned this recipe, because in appearance it looked like the seasoning may have been to much. It was not. This roast chicken was excellent. Enjoy!
