I love Buffalo Chicken Loaded Baked Potatoes because it is a complete meal. It incorporates meat, veggies, and a starch. My Dad is one of those guys who believes that all three must be present at dinnertime, and I try to follow his rules as an adult. My brother argues that a potato is a vegetable and that an additional vegetable isn’t necessary, and this is a big Graham family debate. (I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments).

My secret to making the baked potatoes is to cover the potatoes with butter and salt before baking them. This makes the skins crispy! I generally am not a big fan of potato skin unless it is crisp.

Once the potatoes are crisp on the outside and soft on the inside, I slice the potatoes in half, and scoop out most of the inside. I then mash that potato with cream cheese, sour cream, and a touch of butter. It goes back into the potato skins, get topped with cheddar cheese, and then goes into the oven for another 20-25 minutes.

Twice Baked Potato

During that time I steam some broccoli and heat up some buffalo chicken. As soon as the twice baked potato is ready, I add the chicken and broccoli on top. I might add a little extra cheese too. It is an easy zero-fuss meal that makes for a nice weeknight dinner.

This is one of many meals that I created using my easy 3 ingredient recipe for crock pot buffalo chicken. I like to make a big batch and then I add the buffalo chicken to different meals throughout the week. It’s great on sandwiches, stirred into macaroni and cheese, on pizza, and of course, on top of twice baked potatoes.

If you don’t feel like making buffalo chicken from scratch, you can just shred up a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and add in some buffalo sauce.
