Loaded Chicken & Steak Stuffed Potatoes

by Angie Barrett August-26-2012



Ingredients 


2 Baking Potatoes

1/2 cup diced chicken or diced steak, cooked

6 oz shredded cheese

1/4 cup chopped broccoli, steamed or boiled

1/4 cup diced carrots, steamed or boiled

2 tablespoons bacon bits

Butter

Olive Oil

Salt and Pepper


**Tip** This is great for using up leftover chicken or steak. If I don't have leftover chicken or steak, I chop up small pieces of chicken and steak and cook them in a frying pan for a few minutes until done. Buy pre-cooked chicken, packaged or rotisserie, to save time as well. Boil or steam broccoli and carrots together to save time as well. 

Directions


Prick each potato with a fork. Rub each potatoes with a few tablespoons of olive oil. 

Sprinkle the potatoes with salt and pepper. Place the potatoes on a microwave-safe plate.

Microwave on high for 4-6 minutes. Flip the potatoes over and microwave for 4 minutes. 

Check the middles of the potatoes, potatoes should be soft through the entire potato. If the potato is still a little hard, microwave for 1 minute and check again. Repeat until soft. 


Turn broiler of oven on now.


Slice top of potato lengthwise. Push sides of potato inwards to open potato up. *potato will be hot*

Add a little butter to the inside of the potato.  Fill potato with chicken (or steak) and vegetables. Sprinkle with cheese and top with bacon bits.

Put under broiler for 30-45 seconds or until cheese is melted. Serve Hot.
