BBQ Chicken Twice Baked Potatoes

This one is simple in the fact that it is literally 6 ingredients. Seriously. Just 6!  I made it even easier by purchasing precooked and pre-shredded rotisserie chicken which I think I will always do from now on because I hate shredding chicken, especially when its straight from the carcass.

The length of time it takes to make this recipe, a little less simple. Because, holy cannoli…. potatoes take forever to cook!  Why is that?  This is definitely a “make ahead” meal, because it takes about so looong in the oven. Hmm…. I wonder how much faster this would be in the Instant Pot!?! I might have to try that next.  Has anyone made baked potatoes in the IP? If yes, drop a comment… I would love to hear how they turned out and how long they take!
