Buffalo Chicken Loaded Baked Potato

Posted by

This recipe idea came to mind since it’s football season and with football comes bar food like buffalo wings and potato skins. Why not make a healthier combination of both at home?

This was a great meal to prep ahead of time and just assemble and reheat on the day you eat it. On Sunday, I baked the potatoes, baked and shredded the chicken, and prepared the buffalo chicken filling. Just before eating I reheated the baked potato and topped it with fresh spinach before added the heated buffalo chicken. It was a tasty, fast dinner made of slow components! I hope you give it a try.

Buffalo Chicken Loaded Baked Potato 

Ingredients:

  • 2 shredded chicken breasts (or breast meat from a whole chicken)
  • 3-4 baked potatoes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • salt and pepper

Instructions:

Wash potatoes and rub outsides with olive oil and salt. Bake in a 400° oven for 45 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

Prepare chicken breasts and shredded cooked meat.

In a skillet, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil and sauté onion and celery until soft. Add in 3 cloves of chopped garlic and cook for 1 minute. Turn off heat. Add hot sauce, mayonnaise, and black pepper to the pan and stir until thoroughly combined. Add shredded chicken and toss in sauce.

To serve, split open a baked potato and place a 1/2 cup of fresh spinach onto the flesh. Top with a quarter of the buffalo chicken mixture. Add additional hot sauce, if desired.

Serves 4.
