Have you guys been eating all the bbq chicken this summer? We have. Which means, we’ve also had a decent amount of bbq chicken leftovers. I’m not a huge fan of having leftovers exactly how I ate them the night before so I like to get a little creative and turn them into something a little different.

With bbq chicken leftovers, I like to make bbq chicken quesadillas, bbq chicken nachos, bbq chicken pizza and now, these bbq chicken potato skins.

If you don’t actually have any leftover bbq chicken on hand, you could use other cooked/shredded chicken (like rotisserie) and mix it with some bbq sauce. I used Stubb’s Sticky Sweet BBQ Sauce in this recipe and it was perfect. The sweetness paired so well with the slightly spicy pepper jack, smoky salty bacon and scallions. These bbq chicken potato skins are flavor bombs – so good!

You can also serve these potato skins with some sour cream, if you’re into that sort of thing. I’m not a fan of sour cream as a condiment, so I skip that route. Just extra bbq sauce for me, please! Enjoy!

BBQ Chicken Potato Skins

Yield: serves 4
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes

BBQ Chicken Potato Skins: crispy baked potato skins filled with bbq chicken and topped with cheddar cheese, bacon and scallions. These are the ultimate summer appetizer.

Ingredients

  • 4 medium sized russet potatoes
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 C cooked chicken, shredded (or leftover bbq chicken)
  • 2 Tbsp Stubb's Sticky Sweet bbq sauce
  • 1/2 C shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 scallion, sliced

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Scrub the potatoes clean and dry with a paper towel. Pierce the potatoes with a fork several times and lightly brush with olive oil. Bake for about an hour or until the potatoes are cooked through and the outside is slightly softened. Slice the potatoes in half and cool until easy to handle.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. And spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray. Use a spoon to scoop the cooled potato flesh out of the skins and refrigerate for another use.
  3. Brush the inside of the potato skins with a bit of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake the skins for about 5-10 minutes to crisp them up.
  4. While the skins are crisping, mix together the bbq sauce and chicken. Scoop the chicken evenly into the 8 potato skins. Top with the cheese and bacon. Bake for an additional 2-3 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
  5. Top the potato skins with the scallion and drizzle with additional bbq sauce. Serve immediately.

Notes

Use the leftover potato flesh to make mashed potatoes, potato pancakes, gnocchi, etc.
