Magazine Monday .......early

Chicken Club Stuffed Potatoes

I am joining the Magazine Monday posters again over at Creampuffs in Venice....and yes, I know it isn't Monday yet!

This recipe is from Southern Living magazine, the October 2007 edition.

You'll need these delicious ingredients.........

4 (8 oz.) baking potatoes

1 ½ tsp. olive oil

2 tsp. salt

8 slices bacon

1 cup diced cooked chicken

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 cup shredded Swiss cheese

½ cup mayonnaise

1/3 cup sun dried tomatoes in oil, drained and chopped

2 Tbsp. minced onion

1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

Rub potatoes evenly with oil; sprinkle with salt.

Bake at 425 degrees F directly on top oven rack for 55 minutes or until potatoes are tender and skin is crisp.

Cook bacon; drain and then crumble.

Cut potatoes in half length wise; scoop pulp into large bowl, leaving shells intact.

Stir together pulp, bacon, chicken, ¾ cup each cheddar and Swiss cheeses and next four ingredients.

Spoon mixture into potato shells; sprinkle with remaining cheeses. Place on aluminum foil lined baking sheet.

Bake at 400 degrees F for 25 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
See how it blends and melts into ooey gooey bacony goodness?

Here's a good lunch that is fairly healthy.....meat, potato, dairy and a fruit!

Grrrrrrrreat! Yeah...we'd have this one again. This magazine recipe is a keeper!

Ciao ! These potatoes look so delicious ! Actually the pavlova was very simple ! I just followed the recipe !

Le laquet said...

Yum! Potato+bacon+anything - yum! Aha the knee story, I could tell you, but then I'd have to come over and kill you ;o)

Kim said...

This sounds delicious and I bet my meat and potatoes hubby would love it. I'm going to have to make these.

Pierce said...

WC - you won't be sorry...I promise you. These were very tasty. Since we had them for a lunch I had to start the potatoes earlier but it was super easy.

Thank you Natalia! I am definately going to try that dessert.

Laquet - I agree, just add bacon to anything....well, I wouldn't want you to kill me but I am curious! Email me :D

Kim, be warned, they are filling so I'm not sure if you'd finish one as a side dish.

Laura in Paris said...

Stuffed potatoes is a French country classic - that I never cook. Thank you for inspiring me to use potatoes more often.

Le laquet said...

Ok ok ok :D

Cathy said...

What a great use of leftover chicken (or turkey as the case may be right now for me). I make stuffed potatoes with salmon and cheese...very filling as well.

Pierce said...

Laura - I think you'll like it. You also have many varieties of potatoes available to you in the open air markets, right? We rarely get too much variety.

And Ms. Laquet....I still don't have an email! I'll bet it's a sultry story :D

Cathy - this would rock with leftover turkey. The salmon sounds good too. Wandering Coyote just made salmon and cheese patties, did you check it out?

Shelly W said...

Ooooo I'm gonna have to try these! They look great! My hubby's fave sandwich is the club, so he'd really enjoy them.

I just made these last week! And my kids love it. Yours looks really inviting and delicious too. Cheers.

Pierce said...

Shelly - let me know how your hubby likes them!

Thank you Creampuff :-)

My Little Space - glad to hear they were a hit at your house. We love them...very filling.

Marie said...

Pierce said...
