Chicken and Potato Bake

I found this recipe on Kraft's website and have been meaning to make it for awhile now. When I am looking for an easy recipe with common ingredients Kraft is always a sure bet. This recipe was pretty tasty. I did have some problems with cook time since I used chicken breasts instead of pieces. After about 20 minutes the chicken was cooked and the potatoes were still hard as a rock. To solve this problem I took the chicken out of the dish and threw the dish in the microwave for 4 minutes, added the chicken back on top and set it under the broiler to brown it. Worked wonderfully!

4 bone-in chicken pieces (1-1/2 lb.) (I used two chicken breasts cut into small pieces)
1-1/2 lb. potatoes (about 3 med. potatoes), cut into thin wedges (I used red potatoes and sliced them into 1/4 inch round coins.)
1/4 cup KRAFT Zesty Italian Dressing (I used Good Seasons light Italian... any Italian dressing would work)
1/4 cup KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese
1 tsp. Italian seasoning

PREHEAT oven to 400°F. Microwave the potatoes whole for 2-3 minutes prior to slicing since potatoes take a long time in the oven. Then slice and add to dish. Top with chicken.

TOP with dressing; sprinkle with cheese and Italian seasoning. Cover with foil.

BAKE 1 hour or until chicken is cooked through (180ºF), removing foil after 30 min. Sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley, if desired. (For me the chicken took about 20 minutes. The potatoes needed additional cooking time so I microwaved them for 4 minutes and then returned them to the oven. )
