Savory Potato Skins Worth Waiting For

These potato skins are different from the usual potato skins you get in a restaurant – no tomato sauce or cheese. My DH asked for more of these, and he doesn’t even like potatoes! If you bake the potatoes in the microwave, you might try crisping up the skins by rubbing them with butter and salt, and putting them, empty, in the oven for a few minutes or briefly frying them. Cook time is marinating time, and it is assumed that most of the prep work is done sometime during that time.

These were very good, quite different from the usual stuffed potato skins. I would make these again.

Well I must say these were not what their name implies. But they were quite good. More like a stuffed potato the a potato skin dish. They made a decent week night meal. I didn't see the point in using a chicken breast, it would have been much easier to us ground chicken marinated in the wine. I don't think I would ever serve them cold; they were quite good hot. The instructions were fairly easy to follow, bu the ingredient list would be better listed as used. Thanks for adding to the contest recipes and good luck.
