Chicken Bacon Cheddar Ranch Stuffed Potatoes--2

Chicken Bacon Cheddar Ranch Stuffed Potatoes

I took steak house style twice baked potatoes, and then stuffed them with ranch seasoned shredded chicken, crumbled bacon, cheddar, broccoli, green onion, and an avocado ranch sauce. The potatoes take about an hour and 20 minutes to prepare (I love to get big potatoes so it is enough for a full meal).

Servings 4 servings


  • 4 Large Yukon Gold Potatoes
  • About 2 tablespoons of Butter
  • Salt
  • 3/4 cup Light Sour Cream
  • 1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 4 slices of Bacon
  • 2 cups of Shredded Chicken
  • ¼ cup Chicken or Vegetable Broth
  • 1 tablespoon Ranch Seasoning Mix
  • 1 cup of chopped Broccoli
  • ¼ cup chopped Green Onion

For the Avocado Ranch Crema:

  • ½ an Avocado
  • ½ cup Light Sour Cream
  • 1 tablespoon Ranch Seasoning Mix
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 5 tablespoons Water
  • the juice of half a Lime
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • a dash of Pepper


  1. Heat your oven to 375 degrees. Rinse and dry the potatoes, and then rub them with butter and sprinkle with salt. Place on a baking sheet and bake for one hour.
  2. After one hour, remove the potatoes from the oven. They should be soft on the inside - if not you can let them cook a little longer. Slice the potatoes in half, and scoop out about 2/3 of the inside. You want a layer of potato to be left on the skin.
  3. Combine the scooped out potato, 1 tablespoon butter, 3/4 cup sour cream, and half the cheddar cheese. Mash with a fork to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Scoop the mashed potatoes back into the potato skins. Return to the oven for another 15-20 minutes, while you prep all of the toppings.
  5. Place the slices of bacon on a parchment lined baking sheet and bacon along side the potatoes for about 10 minutes, until crispy. Then remove from the oven and blot any excess grease with a paper towel. Chop or crumble the bacon.
  6. Next, prepare the avocado ranch crema. Place all of the dressing ingredients in a blender and liquefy. Add more water if the dressing is still too thick.
  7. To heat up the chicken, pour the broth, chicken, and 1 tablespoon ranch seasoning mix in a skillet and heat over medium low heat for 4 minutes.
  8. Lastly, rinse the broccoli in water, and then microwave for 30-60 seconds until bright green and soft.
  9. Now it is time to assemble the stuffed potatoes! Take the potatoes out of the oven, then top them with the chicken, bacon, broccoli, cheese, green onion, and a dollop of the avocado ranch crema.

Recipe Notes

If you want to save some time, you could skip making the avocado ranch sauce, and just season some sour cream with some ranch seasoning instead.
