Turkey Skillet Dinner

This recipe would have been quicker with leftover turkey or even a rotisserie chicken.  The turkey breast took two hours to cook, which was fine for me because it was my day of cookingn anyway.  This has bacon, potatoes and turkey.  You really can't go wrong with that combo.  I microwaved my potatoes for just 2 minutes before I diced them so they didn't need to cook in the skillet too long.   I probably could have thrown them in the oven with turkey, but didn't really think about it.
