We loved this recipe!! I did as recipe directed, except I didn't have dried chives so I just left those out, and I didn't have garlic powder so I used garlic salt (this made it a little on the salty side so I'd do the garlic powder next time). I only seasoned the potatoes and onions, since I thought the bacon would be enough flavor for the chicken (which it was). The one thing we did that my husband really felt made the dish really good was to pull the skin off the chicken drumsticks and then tightly wrap the bacon around the chicken. This allowed the bacon to actually stick to the chicken. In past attempts to make bacon wrapped chicken, we've left the skin on, and then the bacon slips right off when you try to eat it, and there isn't as much flavor in the chicken. Also, I put the potatoes and onions right under the chicken and there was PLENTY of bacon drippings to keep the potatoes moist...although I do think if I make it again, I will do as others suggested and put the chicken on a rack above the potatoes, so that I can easily pull chicken out for a second and turn the potatoes halfway through cooking to have all the sides get that yummy bacon grease :) Also, I did half the amount of seasoning since I was not seasoning the chicken, and it was a good amount for the potatoes. We will definitely make again! Thank you!
