Notes

Learn how to make your own potato skin shells here!  They can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator.  The longer baking time is to account for making the potato skin shells themselves if you have not done so already.  The potato skins should be approximately 4" in length for this recipe.
Leftover chicken is perfect for this recipe.  You can also cook some chicken with salt and pepper if needed ahead of time.
You can use a different type of tomato however I like Romas because they have minimal "guts" inside, so you are throwing away less.
You can use leftovers of our fabulous Bruschetta recipe if you have it, or make the large batch and use just a little of it for these potato skins.
