Ingredients

  • 6 medium-sized russet potatoes, scrubbed and dried
  • 1/2 Tablespoon heavy whipping cream
  • 2 Teaspoons melted butter
  • 2 Tablespoons chicken breast, cooked and shredded
  • Salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste

Directions

Preheat oven to 400F.
 
Pierce the potatoes in several places with a fork. 
 
Place potatoes on middle rack of oven and bake for 45 minutes, or until they are soft all the way through when pierced with a fork. Remove from oven and let cool for 10-15 minutes.
 
Cut each potato lengthwise and carefully scoop out insides with a spoon. 
 
In a large mixing bowl, blend potatoes, butter and cream with a whisk or hand mixer until light and airy. Mix together cooked chicken with potato mixture, salt, and pepper.
 
Place filling into each skin halve, and return to the oven for 3-5 minutes.  
 
Top with sour cream, cheddar cheese, or your favorite garnish. 
 

Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.

Chicken Wine Pairing

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfandel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, pinot blanc, or chenin blanc with chicken in cream or light tomato sauce or with chicken crêpes or croquettes; sauvignon blanc or sémillon with fried chicken; viognier with spiced chicken dishes.
