Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Blue-Cheese Potato Skins

6 russet potatoes
3/4 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 tsp olive oil
6 oz. baby spinach
1/2 small red onion
1/4 cup Reduced Fat Blue cheese, crumbled
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
4 serving Weight Watchers whipped cream cheese reduced fat

Recipe Directions for Chicken Blue-Cheese Potato Skins

  1. Preheat oven to 400. Wash potatoes thoroughly and poke holes with a fork. Spray with olive oil cooking spray and place directly on oven rack. Bake 45 minutes - 1 hour until done. Let cool at least 15 minutes.

  2. Cut chicken breasts into bite-size pieces and season with salt and pepper. Heat oil in large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook until done (about 5-7 minutes) and golden brown. Remove from skillet and set aside. Add a little chicken broth to pan to loosen cooked on bits of chicken. Add onion and cook until starting to soften. Add spinach leaves. Cover (if necessary) cause spinach to wilt. After it is done, remove from heat and cut spinach with knife/fork to make it more manageable.

  3. Cut potatoes in half and scoop out potato meat into large mixing bowl. Mash potatoes with a masher and set aside. Place empty potato halves onto a sturdy baking sheet.

  4. In small bowl, mix whipped cream cheese, blue cheese and lemon juice with small wire whisk until thoroughly blended and fairly smooth consistency. (Dilute with a little chicken broth if needed).

  5. Season potatoes with a little salt and pepper and blend in cheese mixture until thoroughly blended. Add cooked spinach/onion mixture and cooked chicken pieces. Stir well.

  6. Spoon mixture into potato shells, dividing evenly. Bake at 400 for 10-15 minutes until light brown and thoroughly heated.
