Buffalo Chicken Twice-Baked Potatoes

To check potatoes for doneness, partially unwrap the largest potato, and pierce center with a fork (avoid piercing fork directly into aluminum foil). If the fork glides in easily, potatoes are done.

4 (6-ounce) russet baking potatoes
3/4 cup (3 ounces) 2% reduced-fat shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
1/2 cup nonfat sour cream
1 teaspoon Buffalo-style hot sauce
1 pound boned and skinned chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 tablespoons Buffalo-style hot sauce
2 tablespoons light margarine
Toppings: nonfat sour cream, chopped green onions


Wrap each potato in a piece of aluminum foil; place potatoes on a baking sheet.

Bake at 425° for 45 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

Cut potatoes in half lengthwise; carefully scoop out pulp into a large bowl, leaving shells intact. Stir together potato pulp, 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup sour cream, and 1 teaspoon Buffalo-style hot sauce.

Spoon potato mixture evenly into shells; sprinkle tops evenly with remaining 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese. Return potatoes to baking sheet, and bake at 425º for 5 to 6 minutes or until cheese melts.

Sprinkle chicken evenly with salt and chili powder, and cook in hot vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 7 minutes or until chicken is browned, stirring often. Stir in 2 tablespoons white vinegar, 2 tablespoons Buffalo-style hot sauce, and 2 tablespoons light margarine; stir until sauce is blended and chicken is coated. Cook 1 minute; remove skillet from heat.

Spoon chicken mixture evenly over tops of baked potatoes. Serve with desired toppings.
