I cannot believe that many of you had to report back today. Cray-to the-z!
In honor of that crazy back to school time, I'm going to share a simple meal idea, that doesn't take too long to fix either. Perfect for this hectic time of year.

4 slices of bacon, optional (I usually forget this part, haha)
4 small boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 bag frozen hashbrowns/diced potatoes (I like O'Brien, with the diced peppers)
1-2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
Preferred seasonings for chicken, optional, to taste (season salt, favorite Ms. Dash).
Preferred seasonings for potatoes (season salt, lemon pepper, anything you'd like).
Cook bacon until crisp. Remove from skillet; discard bacon grease.
Add chicken to skillet, cook 5 minutes on each side or until done. (I cut up the chicken into small cubes to speed up cooking/make it easier to eat. It's easier to cut once partially cooked, if your starting with frozen chicken).
To speed things up, after starting the chicken, I start heating up the frozen potatoes in another skillet. This takes about 10 minutes too. Or you can heat them up after the chicken is cooked through.
Once all is heated up, place chicken over potatoes, top with desired amount of cheese. If you keep the pan on the burner, the cheese melts well.
This meal is pretty fast, 30 minutes and it's ready. It also makes for great leftovers.
To be able to have them all fit in one place, I created a pinboard of all the recipes linked up this summer. Click the picture below to check out all of the recipes, repin, and follow too! :)
