Wok's For Dinner: Rustic Stuffed Potatoes

These potatoes are heaven on a fork! Very easy & very versatile because you can change up the toppings, creating different flavor combinations to suit your taste buds.

Rustic Stuffed Potatoes

2-3 large potatoes. or 6-8 small/medium potatoes
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded or cut into bite-size pieces
1/2 cup bottled barbecue sauce
2-3 tsp cider vinegar
1/4 tsp cayenne pepepr or cajun seasoning
Toppings of your choice: shredded cheese, chopped green onion, sour cream, bacon bits, chives, etc.

Scrub potatoes clean, and pierce in several places with a fork. Cook the potatoes either by 1) microwaving on high for 10-15 minutes, or 2) wrapping in foil, placing on a baking sheet and baking in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes - 1 hour until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Meanwhile, mix chicken with barbecue sauce, vinegar and cayenne or cajun seasoning in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally until chicken is heated through and sauce is hot. Place cooked potatoes on serving plates and remove foil (if you baked in the oven). Cut potatoes up, and spoon chicken mixture over the potatoes. Sprinkle your favorite toppings on top, serve & enjoy!


  1. Personally when making "baked" potatoes, I like to microwave for 10 minutes, then coat with a smidgeon of olive oil before putting them under a grill (broiler) to brown the skins up.

    Your filling sounds amazing!

  2. Wow, I think I learn something new every day. I've never thought to stick the microwaved potatoes under the broiler. Thanks for the tip, Lauren!

  3. We used to get these all the time at a local restaurant. You could buy different kinds. Some had chicken, some beef. Yum!
