Ingredients

  • 2 medium/large russet potatoes
  • olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • half of a rotisserie chicken, shredded - about 2 or 2.5 cups
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/3-1/2 cup hot sauce (I used Texas Pete but you can use whatever you'd like!) If you like it spicier, use 1/2, less spicy, use 1/4 or 1/3 cup.
  • ranch dressing (homemade or store-bought, see notes)
  • green onions for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425. Wash and dry your potatoes.

  2. Add the potatoes to a large sheet pan. Using a fork, poke holes throughout the potato and add a drizzle of olive oil to each one. Rub the olive oil all over the potato. Sprinkle with sea salt.

  3. Bake for 50-60 minutes or so, or until fork tender. Note that the time will vary based on the potato size so be sure to begin checking them at 50 minutes onward!

  4. When the potatoes are almost done, shred half of the rotisserie chicken and add it to a bowl along with the butter and hot sauce. Taste and adjust seasoning. You can *always* make it spicier, so I would suggest starting off with less hot sauce, tasting and then adding more if you'd like.

  5. Make homemade ranch if you'd like. Or use store-bought. Dice up green onions.

  6. Once the potatoes are done baking, remove them from the oven and carefully cut them in half to open them up and let their steam out.

  7. Stuff with the buffalo chicken and drizzle generously with ranch. Top with crunchy green onions. Enjoy every bite!

Recipe Notes

If you want the chicken to be LESS spicy, I recommend starting with 1/4 cup of hot sauce first, tasting it and going from there. 

Find my homemade ranch dressing recipe linked in the blog post above or use the search bar to search for it. It's AMAZING.

For 4 people, I would recommend using the entire rotisserie chicken and then once again, starting with 1/2 cup of hot sauce, tasting it and going from there!
