Twice Baked Potatoes
- 2 (600 grams) russet potatoes
- 240 grams chicken breast cooked and shredded weight (I boil then and shred with hand mixer)
- 206 grams (I head) broccoli
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 package Ranch seasoning
- 2 slices turkey bacon cooked (Columbus brand from costco is the best)
- 56 grams sharp cheddar cheese shredded, halved
- 150 grams non fat greek yogurt (Fage 0% brand)
- salt and pepper
- Preheat oven to 450° F. and line a baking sheet with foil. Wash the potatoes, pat them dry and then pierce holes in them with a fork. Place them on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for about 45 minutes, flipping them halfway through, then remove the pan from the oven.
- Drizzle the broccoli with olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Toss until coated and then spread out into a single layer on the baking sheet with the potatoes when the potatoes have 15 minutes left in the oven.
- Once baked, cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out the inside leaving a 1/4 inch border all the way around. Put the flesh of the potatoes into a large bowl along with the Greek yogurt, ranch, and cheese. I use a spoon to mash and mix everything together.
- Add in the broccoli and cooked chicken to the mixtures and stir. Salt and pepper to taste.
- Put the filling back into the potato skins, top with cheese and bacon and bake them in the oven for another 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the filling is heated through.
