BBQ Chicken and green onion loaded potato skins

Rotisserie revamp!

Store bought rotisserie revamp 5 Loaded potato skins

At this point you would imagine everyone in my household is sick and tired of rotisserie chicken. Now is the time when the recipes will masque the chicken instead of putting it front and center. Sometimes you will want to serve the chicken in all its glory. But let’s say you have had a rotisserie chicken in the refrigerator for longer than 5 days and a few breasts are left in the back of the refrigerator in a bit of foil, you might not necessarily want to celebrate that. This is where these amazingly delicious potato skins come in handy.

Last year I saw my sister in law make some loaded potato skins on her snap chat and ever since then I’ve always wanted to try to make it. It’s so funny for the countless times I have made potatoes, it never clicks to make loaded potato skins. However I knew it would be the perfect vehicle for the rotisserie chicken breast.

 I wanted a really cheesy bbq flavor on this one. Most of the recipes I’ve seen persons don’t actually reuse the potato they scooped out back in the potato skin, I found that to be so strange.  That’s like making a deviled egg but throwing away the yolk. I knew for sure I wanted the filling to be a super flavorful mashed potato worthy of being eaten on its own.

This recipe was very simple, one thing I would suggest is use smaller potatoes. Larger potatoes would take too long to cook, the potatoes I used could fit easily in the palm of my hand. And when you use smaller potatoes you don’t end up with too much extra potato scooped out. This will be a hit with the kids I can assure you.

  • To the bowl of potatoes add the heavy cream and onion powder and mash until smooth
  • Chop the bacon into small cubes and add to a hot pot saute until cooked and crispy
  • Add bacon, chicken, half the cheese and scallion to the potato mash and mix thoroughly
  • Fill the potato skins with the chicken bacon and mashed potato mixture
  • Top each with the remaining cheese
