Jacket Potatoes With Chicken Mince


I think by now most of you would have got the picture on our obsession with potatoes.  I am not really sure whats with potatoes and yes, we can go on and on with any type of potato dishes. Many of those recipes I have shared before were more into stir frying with chillies or spices, so why not to something new because we need the change in the type of food we eat.  

The two potatoes were quite huge and with the filling of chicken as well as salad leaves, my tummy was feeling very happy. I gave up with the marathon of eating these potatoes because one of it was good enough.  The other was wrapped with tin foil, place in the fridge and warmed up before becoming my lunch meal at work.

For vegetarians:
omit the chicken mince and enjoy the potatoes with the rest.
replace the chicken mince either with mushrooms or vegetarian soy chicken.           

Ingredients
For the potatoes:
2 large (each about 200g) US potatoes - boil till tender with the skin on
2 tbsp olive oil
salt for seasoning

For the chicken mince:
300g minced chicken meat
1/2 tbsp dark soy sauce
2 tbsp oil
salt and sugar for seasoning

To serve with:
lettuce/salad leaves
chopped spring onions
yoghurt/sour cream

Method
For the potatoes:
Place potatoes into a baking tray, sprinkle salt and drizzle oil all over.
Baked at 180c for about 20 mins or until the skin becomes crispy.

For the chicken mince
When oil is heated, add in chicken, soy sauce, salt and sugar per taste.
Fry while breaking the mince into smaller pieces with a spatula.
Remove from heat once the chicken becomes crispy and dark brown in colour.
To Serve:
Using a deep spoon, scoop out the middle of each potato.
Put in the chicken mince as much as you like.
Serve on a bed of lettuce leaves,some yoghurt/sour cream and sprinkle the spring onions over.

  2. Here in the US it seems like restaurants have no imagination when it comes to baked potatoes. Each and every time you get that question "do you want them loaded" which is the cheese/chive/sour cream/bacon topping. Also, if it is a meal, you can bet it is taco meat on top with that. Glad to pop in and see a different preparation with the chicken mince and soy-delicious!

  4. Hi!

    Omg.. you are making me very hungry (I love potatoes too!)

    This recipe is good! I never thought of using minced meat as a topping! I always just put butter on before baking!

    If you live in Singapore, I might be thick skin to come down to your house to eat the potato =P

    I have a few question:
    1) Do we need to use a fork to poke the potato?
    2) How come we still need 20 minutes to bake? As we have already boiled it previously, hence baking will take about 10minutes

    Thanks! Keep the potato posts coming!

  5. Hi FoodieFC,
    here's the answer to your questions:
    I did not poke the potatoes bc the baking next does the job of giving the smooth taste. So the second question is also answered together and the baking is also for the crunchy crunch which the olive oil does a good job.
