Loaded Potato Skins
Level: Easy
Total: 2 hr
Active: 50 min
Yield: 6 to 8 servings


4 small russet potatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds)
Skin from 3 chicken thighs
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 ounces white Cheddar, shredded (1 cup)
4 ounces provolone, shredded (1 cup)
1/2 cup sliced black olives
1/2 bunch scallions, chopped, whites and greens divided
Sour cream and sriracha, for garnish


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Prick the potatoes all over with a fork, then place them directly on the middle oven rack and bake until soft when squeezed lightly and the skin is crisp, about 1 hour. Remove and let cool to handle, 15 minutes. (Leave the oven on.)

Meanwhile, heat a large, dry skillet over medium-high heat. Lay the chicken skin flat on a work surface and sprinkle with salt and pepper on both sides. Place the skin flesh-side down in the skillet and fry like bacon, placing a heatproof plate or bowl on top for even cooking and extra crispness, until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side. Remove to paper towels reserving the chicken fat (schmaltz). Break the skin into pieces when cool enough to handle.

Slice the potatoes in half. Scoop out the middles (save for another use such as pancakes, soup or mashed potatoes). Lay cut-side up on a baking sheet. Brush with the schmaltz and sprinkle with more salt and pepper. Bake until lightly brown, about 10 minutes.

Turn the oven to broil. Combine both cheeses, the olives and scallion whites in a small bowl. Divide into the scooped potatoes and broil until the cheese is bubbly, 2 to 3 minutes. Garnish with the chicken skin, scallion greens, sour cream and a dash of sriracha.

“Melty” rears its ugly head again. The bigger problem is using a metal spatula with a non-stick frying pan, though. Whoops.

sportsfan90 on January 19, 2021

I would save the green onions for topping the potato skins once they're done baking

Steve Logan on January 19, 2021

Chef, nice recipe young lady, the fried chix skins are like pork rinds, only made with chix skin , obviously, delicious

Mr Cus on January 19, 2021

Molly Yeh is my girlfriend.

Major Old Lady aka, Mom on January 19, 2021

She's either eating too much of her own non-healthy foods or she is PG. Wearing the chef's apron up too high and a little tummy growing from the inside out?

Anyone else catch that one?

skip davis on January 20, 2021

molly has an infectious cheerfulness.

Tanya Suthi on January 20, 2021

She's like a brunette Jodie Sweetin. They have the same smile.

apexpredator40 on February 3, 2021

Her voice, her smile, her demeanor look so fake. So annoying. This has to be the worst person on Food Network. Worse than Katie Lee and Sunny who to me are the two most annoying, useless people on the planet. At least Katie Lee married Billy Joel and got famous.

Bunner on February 17, 2021

Hi Molly , Big fan here . But was wondering about your cat. I noticed everytime he is shown on tv he is sitting outside in the snow. Does he have a warm place to go inside during the frigid winters ?

I z on April 8, 2021

Esther Hounsell on May 13, 2021
