Try this gorgeous combination of BBQ chicken, scallions, cilantro and gruyere for an explosion of flavour in loaded BBQ chicken stuffed baked potatoes!


Ingredients

  • 4 large baking potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • salt and ground black pepper
  • 2 bone-in skin-on chicken breasts (or 1 rotisserie chicken)
  • 1/4 cup BBQ sauce, plus more for garnish
  • 1 cup gruyere cheese, grated
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  2. Scrub potatoes clean, then poke all over with a fork or knife. Pour about  ½ tablespoon olive oil on each potato and sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper.
  3. Wrap each potato completely in aluminum foil and place potatoes directly on rack in lower ⅓ of oven. Cook for 1 hour until potatoes are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.
  4. While potatoes are baking, place chicken on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Roast on oven rack in upper ⅓ of oven for 45 minutes or until juices run clear and chicken is cooked through. Set aside and let cool.
  6. Remove skin from chicken breasts (or rotisserie chicken) and discard. Shred the meat and place in a small bowl. Add BBQ sauce and toss to combine.
  7. Cut each potato in half lengthwise and season with a little salt and pepper. Top with BBQ chicken, shredded cheese, shallots, cilantro, and scallions. Pour a little extra BBQ sauce on top and serve.
