Stuffed potato with BBQ Chicken

Stuffed Potato with BBQ Chicken is the perfect way to jazz up leftover chicken.

Stuffed Potato with BBQ Chicken is great with any kind of potatoes. The easiest way to make this dish is with leftover chicken. I like to make this dish with leftover whole chicken.

If I don’t have leftover shredded chicken I will put chicken in the crockpot at noon with 1/2 cup of water, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Turn the crockpot on low and the chicken will ready in 4 hours. 

Cost Per Serving is about $ 5.26 as of May 2022
