Can’t decide between chicken or potatoes? Why not both?

If you’re planning a party or have a busy schedule, it’s always helpful to prep ahead. These cheesy chicken stuffed potatoes are an excellent make-ahead meal for those who want to save time and effort. You can prepare them up to two days in advance, then store them in the fridge until you’re ready to serve.

To make ahead, follow the recipe steps until you’ve stuffed the potatoes with the cheesy chicken mixture. At this point, cover and refrigerate the potatoes until you’re ready to bake them. When you’re ready to serve, preheat your oven, then bake as directed in the recipe.

Storing leftover cheesy chicken stuffed potatoes is simple too. After baking, let the potatoes cool completely before storing them tightly covered in an airtight container in the fridge. These potatoes will last up to four days in the fridge.

To reheat baked potatoes, we recommend using a turbo cooker or air fryer on low heat. This way, you’ll ensure they stay crispy on the outside and warm and gooey on the inside. Reheating in an oven is also an option; place leftover baked potatoes on a baking sheet and bake at 350°F until heated through.

By making these cheesy chicken stuffed potatoes ahead of time, you’ll have one less thing to worry about on party day or when hunger strikes- everything will be ready and organized beforehand.

Now that you’re familiar with the ingredient list and how to prepare these scrumptious cheesy chicken stuffed potatoes, I’m going to share with you some handy tips to make sure every time you cook them, they’ll be perfect. Cooking can be daunting, but don’t get discouraged! With these tips and some practice, you’ll be a pro in no time.

– Start by choosing the right potatoes. This recipe works best with medium-sized red potatoes. They should have a smooth skin and be firm to the touch. Avoid older potatoes or those with wrinkled, soft or greenish skin.

– Don’t overcook the potatoes. Keep an eye on them while they’re boiling! Depending on their size, it should take around 20 minutes for them to be cooked through. Poke them with a fork, if it goes through easily, then they’re done. Overcooked potatoes will fall apart when you try to stuff them.

– Make the stuffing flavorful. Try adding some diced bacon or chopped spinach to the mix if you want to give extra flavor and texture to your potatoes. If you’re feeling adventurous, try using a mix of different cheeses like goat cheese or parmesan cheese. Powdered garlic or any other herbs like paprika will give an extra kick of flavor as well.

– Cook the chicken before stuffing it into the potatoes. It may sound intuitive, but this step is important! Using cooked and shredded chicken will ensure that it mixes well with other ingredients before baking the dish.

– Stuff the potatoes generously! Aim for a heaping spoonful of filling in each potato half—no need to skimp on the good stuff!

– Give them space! When placing the stuffed potatoes into the turbo cooker or oven, make sure there’s some space between each potato half to ensure even cooking.

– If you prefer crispy skin on your potatoes instead of just soft skin (and who doesn’t?), brush each potato half with olive oil before baking. This easy trick will result in perfectly crispy skin every time.

Follow these tips on your next batch of cheesy chicken stuffed potatoes in your turbo cooker, and your guests will rave about how delicious they are!

  • 6 medium red potatoes
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 2 -3 garlic cloves
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • salt
  • pepper
  • paprika


  • Clean potatoes, cut them in half, place in TC steam rack, add 2 C water. Cover, high heat, valve open for 20 minutes, DO NOT over cook! Do not let the pan go dry.
  • While that is cooking, finely mince the garlic and onion.
  • Remove the potatoes from the TC and set aside to cool, pour off the water. Place the chicken in the base of the TC, add 3-4 T of water, cover, valve open, high heat for 3 minutes, turn the chicken over, add another 3-4 T of water, cover, valve open, high heat for another 3 minutes. The chicken should be done by now, it it's not, just follow the last step one more time. Remove the chicken, chop the chicken into small pieces. Add the onions to the TC, add 3-4 T water, cover, valve closed, medium high heat for 3 minutes, add the garlic, add more water if it looks dry (3-4 T), cover, valve closed, medium high heat for 2 more minutes, if there is a lot of liquid left over, cook it down until it's almost dry, remove from the TC and set aside.
  • Using a spoon or a melon baller,scoop out each potato half, being careful to leave just enough to support the skin. Place the potato halves back in the steam rack, it's easier if you put the steamer rack in the TC now. Put the part you scooped into a bowl, add the onion/garlic mixture, cheese, sour cream, egg, salt and pepper (to taste). Mash/mix until mostly smooth, then add the chicken, stir until equally incorporated.
  • Put some of the mixture in each potato half, try to use all of the mixture, each one will be mounded up pretty tall. Sprinkle the tops with paprika. Add 1 1/2 C water to the base, cover, valve open, high heat for 15 minutes.
