TOTAL TIME: Prep: 70 min. Bake: 10 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 medium potatoes (about 1-1/2 pounds)
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons buffalo wing sauce, divided
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Additional sour cream and chopped green onions

Directions

  • 1. Scrub and pierce potatoes. Bake at 375° for 1 hour or until tender. When cool enough to handle, cut each potato in half lengthwise. Scoop out the pulp, leaving thin shells.

  • 3. Place on a baking sheet. Bake 8-12 minutes longer or until heated through. Meanwhile, sprinkle chicken with salt and chili powder.
  • 4. In a large skillet, cook chicken in oil over medium heat for 6-8 minutes or until no longer pink. Stir in the vinegar, butter and remaining buffalo wing sauce; cook and stir 2-3 minutes longer.
  • 5. Spoon chicken mixture over potatoes. Serve with additional sour cream and onions. Yield: 8 servings.
