Post subject: what to serve with potato bake?
I know i sound really thick but what would you serve with a potato bake? I bought one of those Homepride jars to make one and bought some chicken breasts thinking i could do something with them to serve as a meat portion with the bake. But i dont have a clue now what would be nice with it any ideas if what to do with the chicken?

Haha funny you should post this as I too have bought homepride potato bake...a garlic one and i dont know what to do with it either!! I thought about chicken but not sure what else? how about veggies? or salad..... actually not sure if id like salad with it......maybe stuff the chicken breast with garlic philadelphia and wrap it in bacon or parma ham? or just wrap it in bacon/parma ham without a filling?
My jar is still sat in the cupboard atm as im not sure what to do with it, let me now if you think of any ideas

Thought i would give a little update on this in case anyone has the same dilemma. Firstly, i made chicken breasts filled with the garlic and herb philidelphia and sprinkled cheese over them in last 5 min of cooking. It was amazing!! Definitely going to try that again. But the potato bake was a total fail! Do not buy this! Half of the potatos were still hard and i had put it in for extra time to cook Really not impressed. Next time i'm going to make some potato wedges with the chicken, they would go lovely with the philidelphia x

They were very thin and in a shallow tray but still raw even after an extra 20 min cooking wasnt too keen on the flavour either tbh so will know not to buy that again lol was gutted too as i was really looking forward to it and the chicken was just an afterthought yet that was the most enjoyable part lol x

cube some potatoes, put them in a casserole dish, put dobs of butter in there and sprinkle with either season all - or paprika, depending on what you're serving with them. cover with glad wrap and prick about 7-8 holes (to let the steam out). put it in to the microwave for around 4-5 minutes, then test through one of the holes. the time these take to cook depends on the microwave. so take the time to experiment the first time, then you'll have it down pat. they could take up to 20 minutes to cook, keep shaking the casserole each time you check them, to make sure you coat them and they will cook better.. great served with sour cream with a nice steak and a side salad (or not), maybe just some asparagus.
