Ingredients

cooking spray

1 spray(s)

uncooked potato(es)

2 large, baked, cooled completely and cut in half lengthwise*

barbecue sauce

¼ cup(s), smoky-variety

hot pepper sauce

tsp

cooked skinless boneless chicken breast(s)

¾ cup(s), chopped, finely chopped or shredded

shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

¼ cup(s)

fresh parsley

½ tsp, fresh, chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Scoop half of potato flesh out of each potato half. (Reserve potato flesh for soup or mashed potatoes, if desired). Combine barbecue sauce and hot pepper sauce in a cup; spoon over potato wedges. Next, fill each potato half with 3 tablespoons of chicken; sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon of cheese.
  3. Carefully place potato skins on prepared baking sheet. Bake until cheese melts and potatoes are hot, about 8 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley and serve. Yields 1 potato half per serving.
Notes
*Make sure the potatoes are cooled completely before slicing and scooping out the flesh or you may have a hard time forming the skins. To add a little heat, substitute 1/4 cup of hot and spicy ketchup for the combination of smoky barbecue sauce and hot red pepper sauce.
