Chicken and Broccoli Stuffed Twice Baked Potatoes

Written by COA Nutrition Team On April 30, 2021

Potatoes, cheese and broccoli were meant to be together! These have a yummy sauce and make a great main dish for any dinner.


For the Potatoes

  • 6 small potatoes
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp kosher salt

For the Sauce

  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup half & half
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 Tbsp fresh chopped basil (Or Gourmet Garden Paste)
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Extra Fillings

  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded rotisserie chicken


  1. Wash and scrub potatoes. Pierce the potatoes all over with a fork or knife and then rub the potatoes with olive oil and kosher salt. Individually wrap potatoes in foil and place them on a baking sheet. Bake at 400°F for 1 hour, or until tender in the centers when pricked with a fork. You can alternately bake potatoes in the crockpot all day.
  1. Meanwhile, heat extra virgin olive oil in a saucepan. Add the onion and garlic and sauté until the onion is translucent about 3 minutes.
  2. Add half & half, chicken broth, and shredded rotisserie chicken to the pan. Simmer 10 minutes. Add the fresh basil, ¼ cup parmesan, and 1 Tbsp lemon juice. Stir until incorporated and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Steam the broccoli florets in a bowl with a lid and 1 Tbsp of water, covered for 2 minutes in the microwave. Drain water, if any.
  4. Remove potatoes from the oven, remove foil, slice potatoes in half length-wise, scoop out the centers into a bowl, and return the potato skins to the baking sheet. Mash the potato centers with a fork.
  5. Add sauce and steamed broccoli to the mashed potatoes. Fill the skins, then sprinkle the tops with the remaining ¼ cup parmesan cheese. Bake for 10 minutes (still at 400 degrees Fahrenheit) switching to the broiler the last couple of minutes to let the cheese brown. Serve immediately.

Tips of the Month MOBILE

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Create Zones

If you regularly bake, having a cooking area and a baking area could make both processes much easier. Your cooking zone can include all the things you use to make regular meals, like your chopping board, knives, and cooking spray. Meanwhile, your baking zone can hold flour, sugar, and dry measuring cups. Though you may use items from one zone while cooking in the other, this kind of set up will still cut down on unnecessary movement around your kitchen.
