Quick potato dinner.

I feel like today's recipe is kind of state the obvious, but I'm sharing it anyway because it's delicious.

This is one of the ways I use leftover baked potatoes and chicken.  Why do I have leftover baked potatoes?  Because if I'm heating up the oven, I'm filling it up!  I'll bake 10-12 potatoes at a time when I have baked potatoes for dinner, then I can use them for lunch and not have to take much time away from school.

Here's what you'll need:

Baked potatoes (I used 6)
Leftover chicken (I used 4 BBQ chicken legs and removed the meat)
A handful of cheese - I had cheddar on hand
Green onions
Salt & Pepper to taste

Add 1/2 stick of butter and potatoes to skillet and cook until starting to brown. 
Salt & Pepper to taste.   We like a little salt and a lot of pepper.

Throw leftover chicken in pan and continue to cook until potatoes brown.
Throw on a handful of cheese and turn off the heat.

Cover with a lid (or in my case, a cookie sheet), until cheese is melted.
Add green onions. 
Look at that cheesy love!
Serve with a dollop of sour cream.
It's a delicious way to enjoy leftovers - even if it isn't pretty!

And add bacon...everything is better with bacon.

As much food as you take pictures of, you should be a food photographer. Looks pretty.

That's a great way to use up baked potatoes! Sausage or ham would be great meat options, too. Thanks for the inspiration.

And what a great idea to bake a bunch of extra potatoes. That's such a simple thing, but I honestly never thought of it. I love twice baked potatoes, and this is like deconstructed ones. Thanks for the idea Charli!
