I went to Walmart to take advantage of a little meal prep help. These Kraft Fresh Takes are so great because all the work is done for you – no greasing up my kitchen frying bacon for this dish. Gotta love that :) Right now you can get a coupon for $1 off chicken when you buy a package of Kraft Fresh Take!

I bought the Cheddar Jack and Bacon Fresh Take and came home to put it to work! Peel and chop some potatoes, chop up some chicken and mix them together with some ranch dressing. Put it all in a baking dish and sprinkle with the Fresh Take packet.  That’s it! So easy, and super tasty! The cheese, bacon, breadcrumb mixture makes a nice crust over the chicken and potatoes – that’s the best part :)  Add your favorite veggie and you have a fantastic meal your whole family will enjoy!

    I love using the Fresh Takes kits. I have tried like 3 or 4 of the flavors and every one of them are yummy. My fav is the cheddar and bacon one cuz I mean bacon!! I never even thought about adding potatoes…def gonna do that soon.

  3. Jenna M Wood says:

    I am always looking for a way to spice up potatoes for a side dish- with all the Fresh take varieties, these potatoes could be dressed for several styles of meals! #Client

  4. Cristina says:

    Can’t wait to make this recipe. Did the potatoes come out well cooked at the end or did you boil them first for a little bit so they would cook thoroughly instead of adding them raw?

    These Kraft Fresh Takes. I have never heard of them. I am in Canada. Do you know if they are available here? If not, then could a person use Shake and Bake and add cheese and bacon? If so, how much would a person need?

    • Hi Nancy! I am not sure if they are available in Canada…You could definitely use Shake and Bake instead. I would add 1 1/2 cups cheese and maybe 6 slices of chopped, cooked bacon. Enjoy!
