How to make Chicken Stuffed Baked Potatoes
To begin, preheat your oven to a toasty 450°F (230°C). Give the potatoes a thorough scrub and then pierce them with a fork to allow for even cooking. Next, transfer the potatoes to a baking sheet, where you can brush or spray them with a drizzle of olive oil. Bake for approximately 40-45 minutes until they become tender.
While the potatoes are baking to perfection, it’s time to prepare the chicken filling. In a large frying pan, heat oil or melt some butter over medium-high heat. Saute the onions and garlic until they turn soft and release their fragrant aromas, for about 5 minutes. Then, add the red pepper and chicken, cut into small pieces, and continue cooking until the meat is thoroughly cooked. Add a sprinkle of fresh parsley, a touch of nutmeg, and season with salt and pepper. Once everything is perfectly combined, remove the pan from the heat, and get ready for the next step.
As the potatoes cool down to a manageable temperature, carefully slice them in half lengthwise. Gently, scoop out the interior of each potato, ensuring a thin shell of flesh and skin remains intact. Lightly mash the scooped-out potato flesh and add it to the savory filling mixture. Give it a good stir, allowing the flavors to meld together.
Adjust your oven temperature to a slightly higher 480°F (250°C). Take the potato shells and generously fill them with the prepared mixture, ensuring they are evenly distributed. Place the stuffed potatoes back on the baking sheet, and generously sprinkle mixed cheese on top for an irresistible golden crust. Return the sheet to the oven for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
Serve with your favorite dipping sauce or a dollop of creamy sour cream. Alternatively, savor them alongside a crisp and refreshing salad.
