Potato Tips:

Red and gold potatoes with edible skins are best for foil wrapping. When using potatoes, be sure to cut them into small pieces (less than 1/2 inch) so they cook at the same rate as the chicken. Alternatively, you can also slice them thinly. If you leave the potato chunks too large, you’ll be left with a portion of crunchy raw potatoes, which no one likes.
