4 servings (serving size: 1 potato, about 1/3 cup chicken, about 2 tablespoons sour cream topping, and 2 tablespoons cheese)

The home-style flavors of baked potatoes topped with tender barbecue chicken and all the fixin's go perfectly with old-fashioned banana pudding. Top the pudding with some beautiful strawberries, and you've got a fresh new angle on a classic dessert.

Prep: 5 minutes; Cook: 12 minutes

How to Make It

Step 1

Pierce potatoes with a fork; arrange in a circle on paper towels in microwave oven. Microwave at HIGH 10 minutes or until done, rearranging potatoes after 5 minutes.

Step 2

While potatoes cook, combine sour cream and 2 tablespoons onions; set aside.

Step 3

Place chicken in a microwave-safe bowl; cover with plastic wrap (do not allow plastic wrap to touch food). Remove potatoes from microwave; place chicken in microwave. Microwave at HIGH 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

Step 4

Slice potatoes lengthwise, cutting to, but not through, other side; fluff with fork. Top each potato evenly with chicken, sour cream mixture, cheese, and remaining onions.

Very yummy and easy to prepare. Great for a quick meal on a busy night. I did make my own BBQ chicken in the slow cooker. The suggested has many preservatives and high fructose corn syrup.

My husband and I really liked this, we also buttered and salted the potatoes before baking them in the oven and it turned out really well!!!

This was so simple but so great and filling! For the BBQ chicken, I boiled three chicken breasts until cooked then shredded by hand and added BBQ sauce. I was full after one serving and my boyfriend had two! This is definitely a keeper and I will make again!! :)
