CHEESY BBQ CHICKEN POTATO SKINS

I think potatoes are the most versatile of any vegetable. There are a zillion different delicious ways to prepare them and, frankly, I can only think of one way that I don’t enjoy potatoes. (In my defense, if my parents had not insisted and forced me to eat potato salad when I was young I probably would have grown to like it.)

I digress.

Potatoes are a great pantry staple since they are so versatile. Make a main dish or a side recipe with them. I used russet potatoes in this recipe, topped them with barbecue chicken, and turned it into an easy meal.

Need it faster? Microwave the potatoes instead of baking them. Pop over and read Best Microwave Baked Potato Recipe.

INGREDIENTS FOR YOUR CHEESY CHICKEN POTATO SKINS

I allowed a whole potato for the main course serving. If you’re serving this as a side dish you may want to count 1/2 a potato as a serving.

  • Russet potatoes
  • Chicken
  • BBQ sauce
  • Cheddar
  • Green peas
  • Olive oil

METHOD

  1. First, clean the potatoes and wrap them in foil. You’ll bake them like normal. 
  2. While they’re baking, cut up the chicken and cook it on the stovetop.
  3. Once it’s cooked, add the peas. Be careful not to overcook them or they’ll by mushy.
  4. Next, when the potatoes are cool enough to work with, scoop the inside out leaving the skin and about 1/4-inch of potato.
  5. Almost there, mix the potato you scooped out with the cheese and chicken mixture and fill the potato skins.
  6. Finally, bake until hot.

HOW DO I STORE LEFTOVER STUFFED POTATOES?

These stuffed potatoes can be kept in the fridge in an airtight container for five days. As well, you can freeze them for up to 3 months, to reheat them, place them directly in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes at 350˚F.
