What do you do when you have a lot of Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken leftover? Well, you make these BBQ Chicken Potato Skins of course!
Did you all have a great Memorial Day? We are spending ours at the beach, honestly does it get any better? I would be perfectly happy to just pick up shop and move here. My job is mobile and my husband is a truck driver and surely he could get a job pretty quickly. Dreaming…lots of dreaming happening while my toes are in the sand.
In the meantime, this recipe is perfect if you have leftover chicken from Memorial Day. I like to make these with my Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken recipe; however, you can use your grilled chicken and just shred it up and add BBQ sauce. It will work just as well.
We love potato skins, so I decided to grill some up then I topped each one with the BBQ Chicken. These are perfect for an appetizer; however, I was pretty full after a couple of them so I guess they ended up being my full meal. We like to dip ours in ranch dressing, but they are great as is too.
I’m loving taking all our cooking outside on the grill right now. Of course the beach and vacation is high on my list of summer favorites but so is grilling. There are so many foods that are perfect for grilling. Have you tried grilled potato skins? What did you think? They are a win in our household!
Now, what should I top our potato skins with next? Brisket? I think so! Oh and just in time for the 4th of July, the next big grilling occasion this summer.
Now, let me get back to my sandy beach to soak up some more sun.
Enjoy your week!

This looks delicious. I don’t know how well my kids would go for the potato skins. I may have to cover them up a little more with cheese overflowing.

I just put pulled pork on a baked sweet potato last night. I love filling and quick meals like this! I need to try that slow-cooker BBQ chicken. YUM!
This looks like an awesome dish to have for a Football party or to have at the house when you are inviting people over for a cook out! I like that it is simple and that you can make it ahead of time.

These are making me hungry for a late night snack. I love potato skins and have never thought about putting BBQ chicken in them. I am saving this recipe and will be making these for an upcoming barbecue this month. Thanks for the fantastic recipe. I also think I might try them with BBQ Pork.
