Leftover Reincarnation

I rarely get away with serving leftovers for dinner since Mr. B is not a big fan of them.  However, I have found success with taking a component of yesterday's meal and creating something new.  Since I had a good amount of Crockpot BBQ Pulled Chicken left over from the weekend, I decided to put it to a rather tasty use.  Thus the birth of the BBQ Chicken Baked Potato!  And let me tell you, it was fantastic!  These were so quick and easy to make, they would be a great option to serve a crowd.  I would serve this to company any day.  After a few bites Mr. B said, "Where did you get this chicken, it's delicious!"

Prepare baked potatoes.  For my quick weeknight potato recipe click HERE.

While potatoes are cooking, heat your leftover chicken.  Once potatoes are cooled through, split them open and top with a generous helping of bbq chicken.  Sprinkle with shredded cheese and sliced onion.  I chose to add a small dollop of sour cream, several shakes of hot sauce, and a drizzle of BBQ sauce.  You can alter the toppings to suit your tastes, but I can't think of anything I'd do different.  Enjoy!
