MY REVIEW

"Not a very memorable recipe. We tried this three weeks ago and other then thinking it was okay and average I can honestly not remember a thing about it. Definitely not one my family will be repeating."

MY REVIEW

"My family and I love this recipe. I make it so often that I have the recipe memorized. Makes plenty of leftovers. I don't use the liquid smoke and I cut down on the brown sugar (1/4 cup) since the honey BBQ sauce I use is plenty sweet."

"This is a fantastic and easy meal for a large group. We love to offer a potato bar for a large group with this as the star topping. People really seem to enjoy it!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 14, 2014

"Haven't tried this yet but from the other comments it sounds very good. I see others using boneless chicken. I think using boneless is not as good, there is much flavor lost without the bone, especially in slow cooked meats. It may be easier but is it worth it? Also some have changed so much it isn't even the same recipe. I will make exactly like stated the first time.There seems to be a lot of sodium and carbs, but after trying it this way I can always adjust the recipe. Anything in moderation is OK once in a while."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 18, 2013

"I'm always looking for ways to dress my baked potato that are tasty and don't kill it with too many calories. Personally, I'm not a fan of the liquid smoke and blue cheese, so I leave that out. A little aged gouda or gruyere are a nice alternative to cheddar. I agree that using boneless chicken is much easier, but overall this is an easy and delicious recipe!"
