Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Stuffed Potatoes



Today was one of those kind of days where I was having trouble coming up with something to make for dinner. I was kind of in a recipe rut. I wanted to make something different but hadn't gone grocery shopping yet for the week. After scouring my pantry I decided to create a potato stuffed with Hawaiian BBQ chicken. Kind of different and that is what I liked about them. The sweet, spicy, and salty combo was fabulous!

Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Stuffed Potatoes
Serves 2
WW PP=11 per potato
Cal 401, Fat 12g, Carbs 41.5g, Fiber 2g, Protein 34g

Ingredients
2 medium russet potatoes, baked
1 cup cooked shredded chicken (I made my chicken in the crock pot)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup Hawaiian style BBQ sauce (I used Archer Farms)
1/4 cup pineapple chunks
1/4 cup cooked crumbled bacon, divided
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (I used reduced fat)
chopped red or green onion, optional

Combine the shredded chicken, garlic powder, ground ginger, salt, and barbecue sauce in a saucepan  set over low heat. Stirring occasionally, heat the mixture until warmed through. (You can always add more sauce but I only used 1/3 cup since I am dieting)

When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, slice each one down the center, leaving the ends in tact. Gently push on the ends of each potato to open it and expose the center. Divide the chicken mixture between the potatoes, then add a few pineapple pieces and 1/4 cup of shredded cheese along with half  of the bacon. Drizzle with additonal sauce and garnish with chopped onion if desired. Enjoy!
