One of my favorite parts of being a food blogger is getting to try delicious food products and report back to you guys. I’ve been a fan of Stubbs BBQ Sauce in the past so when they reached out about partnering in some recipe creation I jumped at the opportunity. They sent me a box of marinades, rubs & bbq sauce a few weeks ago so I used the citrus onion marinade & bbq sauce to make this shredded chicken bbq baked potato. This dinner was SO good and came together in less than 20 minutes (not counting the chicken in the slow cooker), it would be the perfect weeknight dinner, I’ll definitely be making it again.
I’ve tried their BBQ sauce in the past but this is my first time experimenting with the marinades. It was fantastic, I can’t wait to make some grilled chicken with it this summer when we pull the grill out.
I put a couple chicken breasts in the slow cooker with the marinade and let is cook for 6 hours on low until it was tender and shredded easily.
After the chicken was done I made the “baked” potatoes in the microwave. Simply wash the potato, pierce it with a fork a few times, roll it in a paper towel and microwave on high for 6-7 minutes. If you are making more than one, cook them separately.
When the potato is done and slightly cooled, scoop out with a spoon and mash with BBQ sauce, salt, pepper & a little butter or butter substitute (I used Melt).
Then scoop the potato back into the skin, sprinkle with shredded cheese, top with shredded chicken and garnish with more BBQ sauce and diced green onion.
Feel free to get creative and add your favorite veggies or top with a sauce like creamy ranch or buffalo sauce. If you’re lucky you’ll have some leftover chicken because it makes a KILLER chicken salad 🙂
WHAT MAKES ME HAPPY:
We had a gorgeous sunny day on Saturday so we went up to NH and enjoyed a day of skiing with my parents. It was such a fun day, I got to try out my new skis and soak up the sun! I hope there are more days like this left in the season.
