Recipe of the Week: Twice Baked Chicken Pot Pie Potatoes with Crispy Bacon

Ingredients:

  • 4 russet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups rotisserie chicken, chopped
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup bacon, cooked, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Take a fork and poke a couple of holes around each potato. Place the potatoes on the baking sheet. Drizzle tops with 1 tablespoon olive oil, s&p. Bake for about 50 minutes or until soften. Remove from oven to cool.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium skillet preheated to medium-high heat, add the remaining olive oil, celery, carrots, onion, thyme, and s&p. Saute veggies until softened about 7 minutes. Turn the heat back to medium, add butter to skillet and melt. Sprinkle the flour over the veggies and stir to combine. Next, pour the milk over the veggies and continue to stir creating a thickened sauce about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove skillet from heat, stir in chicken, 1/2 cup mozzarella, & a dash of s&p.
  4. Once the potatoes have cooled, slice the tops open lengthwise and scoop out some of the potato. Pour some of the chicken pot pie mixture into the baked potato. Top the potatoes with 1/4 cup of the mozzarella. Place baking sheet back in the oven for five minutes or until the cheese has melted. Remove from oven, garnish with bacon, and serve immediately!
