If you’re looking for an easy weeknight meal, I’ve got you covered. Throw a couple things in the oven when you get home from work and within an hour you’ve got a gourmet meal ready to go. It's called BBQ chicken stuffed baked potatoes.
The flavours flavours that we all love about BBQ chicken pizza come together in this loaded baked potato. I am talking about BBQ chicken paired with scallions and cilantro. Yup, it's kind of a classic. This loaded potato is elevated with the addition of gruyere, a slightly funky cheese. It melts so beautifully and it contrasts the sweetness of the BBQ sauce perfectly. I also used shallots in this recipe instead of typical raw red onions as it offers a less intense flavour. But, if you got a spicy pallet, feel free to substitute red onion for a more intense heat.
This recipe is so easy to prepare. Your oven really does most of the work. I cooked chicken breasts from scratch, but you could certainly make it even easier by picking up a rotisserie chicken from the store. If you are roasting chicken breasts at home, make sure to buy bone-in, skin-on (you can discard the skin after cooking). For some reason, these are so much more flavorful than boneless skinless breasts.
This is such an easy and impressive meal. Looks and tastes like it came from a restaurant. I hope you love it as much as I do!
