Servings: makes 4 servings

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes

4 medium baking potatoes such as russet, scrubbed clean
oil for brushing
2 cups cooked chicken, shredded or diced and warm
1/2 cup hot sauce (such as Frank’s Red Hot)
2 tablespoons butter, melted
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1/2 cup blue cheese, crumbled (or any cheese you like)
2 green onions, sliced (optional)
1/4 cup blue cheese dressing

1.Prick the potatoes a few times with a fork and bake in a preheated 400F oven until tender, about an hour.
2.Let the potatoes cool, cut in half and scoop out the middle leaving about 1/8 inch of potato on the skin. Reserve the scooped out potato for another use like mashed potatoes.
3.Brush the potato skins all over with the oil and bake in a preheated 450F over for 10 minutes on each side.
4.Mix the hot sauce and the melted butter and then mix in the chicken.
5.Season the inside of the potato skins with salt and pepper, fill with the chicken and sprinkle on the cheeses.
6.Broil until the cheese has melted, just a few minutes.
7.Serve while still warm, garnished with green onions and with a side celery and carrot sticks and some blue cheese sauce for dipping.
