Creamy Chicken and Vegetable Topped Baked Potatoes

 

Last week I was really in the mood for Chicken Potpie.  But I was also in a hurry, and I didn’t have any pie crusts on hand.  It’s not hard to make pie crust, but I didn’t have the time.

What I did have was a bag of baking potatoes that needed to be used.  So I decided to bake the potatoes and then make a quick chicken and vegetable topping for them.  The topping is a lot like chicken potpie filling.

The result was great and it only took a few minutes of hands on prep.

Instead of adding onions to the topping, I decided to add onion slices to a few of the potatoes (leaving the picky people’s potatoes plain).

Baked Potatoes with Onions

 

This is easy to do.  If you like onions, you really should try it.  Just cut the potatoes most of the way through, using the knife to pry the halves apart a little bit.  Stuff onion slices and pats of butter inside.  Season with salt and pepper and wrap in foil.  Bake the same way you do baked potatoes – 350 degrees for about 2 hours.

Here’s what you’ll need for the chicken and vegetable topping:

The topping part is so easy!  I used veggies that cook in the microwave, but you can use any kind you like.  I also used frozen rotisserie chicken.  A quick thaw in the microwave is all it takes to have it recipe ready.

  1. Tiffany, your timing is perfect! I saw this recipe in my email today and made it for dinner tonight. I had everything on hand and it was super easy to pull together. I used leftover rotisserie chicken I had in the freezer. I like your idea of adding the onions to the potatoes while baking. Fortunately, both my husband and I love onions, so I added them to the topping mix. We’ll have enough for lunch tomorrow! Thanks for a 2-thumbs-up recipe!
