I’m not the biggest fan.

Let’s be real…french fries, smashed taters, breakfast potatoes, potato chips, curly fries, mashed potatoes, scalloped potatoes, and TATER TOTS are worthy potato eats. Am I right?

There is a part of me that wishes I had some tragic experience with a baked potato that would provide a rational reason as to why I am so “meh” about it. I mean the baked potato hasn’t done anything personally to me. Well, if you count a potato gun, but that’s a whole different story altogether.

Growing up, I remember my mom fixing a lot baked potatoes. Maybe that’s it? I was baked potato overloaded as a child. I remember my seven year-old self trying to cover it’s “meh-ness” by drowning it in sour cream, shredded cheese, butter, and chives, but nothing worked. So, I would sit at the dinner table like a New York Times food critic, eat only the toppings, and b&%ching to my dolls about how 1990 this dish was.

But! Like I said earlier, it’s not the potatoes fault. So rather than keep pushing my grocery cart past the russet aisle, I figured they could use a little a makeover. Baked Potato meet Chicken Pot Pie. Chicken Pot Pie meet Baked Potato. Let’s mingle.

With comfort food hitting the stoves now that the cooler temperatures have steadied, I thought, why not stuff the standard russet with one of my all-time favorite comfort foods? I could eat chicken pot pie all year-round. A flaky, golden pie stuffed with veggies, chicken and a cheese sauce, what’s not to like?

For this chicken pot pie version, I used the baked potato as the pie vehicle. Let me tell you, it’s comfort food baked at an insane level of deliciousness. Top it with a little more cheese, bacon….there’s nothing “meh” about it.

In conclusion, our Twice-Baked Chicken Pot Pie Potatoes, adorned with crispy bacon, redefine comfort. Indulge in creamy satisfaction, a harmonious blend of flavors that leaves a lasting, savory impression.
