Chicken Fajita Spuds

Southern Living OCTOBER 1996

  • Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 skinned and boned chicken breast halves
  • 6 large baked potatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Mexican-style cheese blend, divided
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Garnishes: chopped fresh cilantro, fresh cilantro sprigs

Preparation

Combine first 4 ingredients; rub onto all sides of chicken breast halves. Place chicken in a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish, and let stand 15 minutes.

Bake chicken at 400° for 6 minutes on each side. Cut into strips.

Cut a 1-inch-wide strip from top of each baked potato. Carefully scoop out pulp, leaving shells intact; set shells aside. Mash pulp; stir in 1 cup cheese blend, 1/2 cup sour cream, butter, and next 3 ingredients. Spoon into shells, and place on a baking sheet.

Bake potatoes at 350° for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese blend, and top with chicken. Bake 5 more minutes or until cheese melts. Serve with sour cream and salsa. Garnish, if desired.
