This was an easy meal that I threw together Sunday night when we got home from skiing and wanted something different.  Brady is a huge potato skin lover and a lover of all things spicy.  This seemed like an obvious combo.

It was easy because I bought a rotisserie chicken and marinated the meat in buffalo sauce.  I  cooked the potatoes in the microwave and once I put them together, I threw it all in the oven.  We did decided it needed a little lite blue cheese or homemade healthy ranch and some crunch from celery and/or lettuce, but it’s a perfect appetizer or easy dinner for a busy night!

Healthy Buffalo Chicken Potato Skins

  • 6 medium  or small potatoes
  • cooking spray 
  • 1 rotisserie chicken, meat removed 
  • 3/4 c. buffalo sauce or Frank’s

For the toppings:

  • 12 tbsp reduced fat shredded cheese
  • fresh parsley
  • lite ranch or blue cheese dressing
  • lettuce, celery or carrots

Directions:

1. Remove chicken and place the meat into the buffalo sauce.  Allow to marinate for 30-60 minutes.

2. While the chicken marinates, cook the potatoes by poking them with a fork and cooking them for about 5-8 minutes until they are cooked. 

3. Cut the potatoes in half horizontally and scoop out the potato, leaving a very thin amount.  Feel free to save the potato for later. 

4. Heat oven to 425.  Spray each potato skin with oil spray.

5. Place a scoop of chicken into each potato and top with cheese.

6. Bake 8-10 minutes and remove when cheese has melted and potato has crisped.  Season with salt, pepper, fresh parsley 

7. Top with lite ranch, blue cheese dressing or lettuce/celery!

Perfect for a Healthy Super Bowl Party!
