  • Makes
    8 servings


  • 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

  • Place on a baking sheet. Bake 8-12 minutes longer or until heated through. Meanwhile, sprinkle chicken with salt and chili powder.
  • 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.
  • Spoon chicken mixture over potatoes. Serve with additional sour cream and onions.

    I rcvd an email featuring this recipe and made these for dinner same evening. Let me tell you, these baked potatoes are YUMMY!! A little time consuming but very easy to make. Hubby and I really enjoyed this one and will for sure make these again. These were our main course and we had fresh broccoli to go with but these could easily be a great appetizer too.I highly recommend this recipe - enjoy!
