Tasty Tuesday Bacon-Roasted Chicken with Potatoes!

Looks like Donna has sent us another winner! Can't wait to try this one!

12 chicken drumsticks
12 slices center-cut bacon
salt and pepper to taste
1 onion, coarsely chopped
1 1/2 pounds of Dutch yellow potatoes or any small yellow potatoes

Seasoning mix:
2T dried chives
2T dried basil
1 T garlic powder
1 T adobo seasoning
1 T ground pepper

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Wrap each chicken piece in a slice of bacon, trying to cover the whole piece. Place the wrapped chicken pieces in 9 x 13 baking dish, season with salt and pepper, and sprinkle the onion over the chicken. Push potatoes down into the spaces between the chicken pieces and around the edge of the dish.
3. Combine the Seasoning Mix in small bowl, sprinkle the seasoning mix to taste over the chicken and potatoes.
4. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour, until the bacon is crisp and brown and the potatoes are tender.
Serve hot with a nice salad or fresh green vegetables.


  1. I love bacon, potatoes and occasionally chicken. This recipe sounds amazing. *Writes it down* Thanks Donna! :D

    Is it bad that when I first saw the hunky hunk I thought he was handcuffed? Yum.

  2. Wow, I'm liking this hunk and he's in a perfect position. Slammed against a wall just waiting patiently for me! I really like this guy! Good one Donna!

    And the recipe sounds fabulous. Bacon and anything! Please!

  3. This hunk is in a uniquely beautiful pose---I really like the photo.

    The recipe sounds delicious, too---what's not to love about meat and potatoes seasoned with BACON?? Unfortunately, I'm trying to lose a pants size or three, and have decided to forgo bacon for a while---sigh. Reading the recipe was tasty, though! Thanks, DDonna!!

  4. It's a tasty recipe. I cheated. And wrapped half the pieces in the bacon only. Because I two have cut way back. You get the flavor but not the extra calories on the 6 other legs. It worked out. I also substituted paprika for Adobo. I couldn't find dry Adobo seasoning here. The chicken is seasoned and the potatoes. It's quite TASTY. I can't take credit for Mr. do with me what you want. He's TASTY and glorious all on his own.

  5. Good morning, ladies! I, for one, am starving this morning. Wish I'd had this recipe and that hunk waiting for me when I got home, but, alas, my kitchen and my bed are both cold. Must make do....

  6. Wishing you Sweet And Tasty Dreams Cat Master. I'm sure you can warm that bed up real fast. Just dream about tomorrow's Weasel in your bed today. LOL!!!

  7. Look at all the fun I've missed over here! Was away, then sick, but I should have checked in because I think a healthy dose of hunkage would have fixed me up more quickly than these anitbiotics I'm on. DAMN. Loved the winner, Ana! Well done! Though a number of these men are coming home to my hunk file:-)

    Yummy recipe...I'll have to try it. And I really love this picture. It's not just that he's naked, either:-)

  8. I like this guy, because he just looks needy. He needs all the sweet loving we all can give him. Hi Kendra. I'm sorry you've been under the weather. This recipe and hunk will fix anything.
    I giving another Hunk alert: Gerry Butler tomorrow on Ellen. TVO it. And I'm going to see this movie tomorrow. My Greeneyed Handsome Scotsman. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czXE0aALfek&feature=related

  9. I saw that movie last night Donna. It was good :D

  10. Yup, I'm gonna have to agree with Kendra on this hunk. There is just something about him-and it's really not just that he's naked. Very sexy!

    Got anymore of him Donna?

  11. Yeah, totally, Lisa and Donna. He just looks like he wants it. Bad. And knows he's about two seconds away from complete ecstasy. The word "surrender" comes to mind. *fans self rapidly* I believe I'm thinking too much about this picture.

  12. Lisa, Theres so much of a story in this picture. I have to say I wish I knew him. I don't know who he is. I just wish I could say he's MINE!!!!
    He's in such a great pose. Can you imagine if he was excited.

  13. Surrender-yup! That's exactly it.

    Clearly, I'm thinking about it way too much too and sneaking way too many peeks today!

  14. Hey, Kendra! Sorry to hear you've been feeling poorly. Glad to have you back with us.

    For whatever reason.....

  15. Oh yes...a total winning hunk today all the way around. Lord have mercy! I've about worn my keyboard out going back to look...just one more time:)

    Cat Master...Who exactly found this beautiful man? Any clues AT ALL about his identity? Me thinks all of us need more....

    Recipe? What recipe? *grin* I think the only DRUMSTICK any of us are thinking about is the one waiting up against the wall.

    Okay, okay...I've regathered my hormones and I do want to thank Diva Donna for the sumptuous sounding Bacon-Roasted Chicken with Potatoes.

  16. Sorry everyone about my lack of postings latelly, but I have been incredibly busy. I agree with everyone. Today's hot young hunk is a big weiner...I mean winner!

  17. Where's Leslie? Anyone heard from her? Is it exam time? She's been awfully quiet during this whole hunk hunting expedition we've been on.

  18. Yeah Nancy Thanks. But this Hunk just takes center Stage. Sharon I knew you'd be back around when we put a really Nice Yummydoodle up. Any Measurements?
    I have no idea where our Erotic Exotic Expert is hiding. I believe she's working hard. She might even have gone to Europe to see her Mom. Missing from Facebook too. We're missing a few of our special gals today. I hope they don't miss this Sweetheart. He's a Keeper.

  19. Oh Yeah - love the handcuffs & surrender ideas.

  20. This recipe sounds delicious, but I have a few questions. Did you use Goya Adobo Seasoning and if so, which variety? If it is unavailable in my area, is the paprika mentioned by DDonna a good substitute?

  21. Hi Kryslin,
    The adobo seasoning I've found is primarily a mixture of salt, pepper, garlic powder, and oregano. I mix my own and leave out the MSG that most brands include.

    As to the identity of today's hunk, I have no clue. Wish I did...

  22. Kryslin,
    Adobo is Spanish for sauce or seasoning or marinade used in Latin American- and Southwest U.S.-style cooking.
    Like Cheryl said it's a combination of salts, and peppers, oregano and many OTHER Latin Seasonings. I'm unable to get Adobo in my stores. So I go with Smoked Paprika. I like the Spanish Smoked Pepper Taste without the heat. ENJOY!!!!
