Chicken Broccoli & Cheese Twice Baked Potatoes

Growing up in Louisiana, playing sports was an outlet for most boys and as I started to take it more seriously I started to take my diet seriously as well. I used to buy potatoes by the bags and eat one daily before bed in an attempt to gain more weight (AKA “carb-loading”).

I would only use the basics like salt, pepper, and butter but once I got a taste of a twice-baked potato filled with meats, cheese and whatever else you can think of, I was hooked. Check out my other recipe for a brisket version of my twice-baked potatoes.

There are a lot of great duos that are legendary (like Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen) and even peanut butter and jelly, but blending broccoli and cheese together doesn’t stray too far behind. I figured why not incorporate the same into a baked potato? So today I bring to you my Chicken Broccoli & Cheese Twice Baked Potatoes.

Chicken Broccoli & Cheese Twice Baked Potatoes

What makes this recipe so great to me is the fact that you can eat the entire potato including the crispy skin. The Creole seasoned chicken breast chunks blend very well with the garlic-laced broccoli and cheese. And the end result is comfort cheesy goodness. Plus it’s gluten-free!

  1. I always struggle with side dishes to go with dinner! These are perfect! We love potatoes at our house and cheese is never a bad thing to have on anything! Cannot wait to try these!

  2. Back in the days when I woul eat fast food, Wendy’s broccoli cheese baked potatoes were one of my faves. Now I realize they were so basic. But these homemade twice baked potatoes are the real deal! Love it!

  3. I’ve only ever had classic twice baked potatoes with plenty of butter, sour cream, green onions, cheese & chopped cooked bacon on top; however, your version looks even better! I bet that creole seasoning + garlic combo is amazing. 🙂

  4. I’ve always liked twice baked potatoes – and I keep forgetting to make them myself! The addition of chicken to the more typical broccoli cheese potato is perfect – you know have the whole meal, there.

  5. Wow, these look so tasty. Chicken Broccoli & Cheese is always a winning combo and Twice Baked Potatoes are always twice as delicious.

    And I’m loving the in-progress photos as it shows how easy there are to make.
