HungryHeath does the Hasselback

Shelly & I have been talking about making this for some time now. I'm not sure why we waited so long. We were both exceedingly happy with how this dinner turned out.

For this meal, we chose these ingredients:

2 Large Yukon gold potatoes
2 Large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
HungryHeath SPG blend
HungryHeath Pork & Poultry rub
1 Block of Monterrey Jack cheese
Candied jalapenos with shaved garlic pieces
Schlotterbeck & Foss Maple Bacon Chipotle Sauce
1 stick of butter
Sour cream
Bacon bits


Step 1: Preheat oven oven to 400° F & line casserole dish with aluminum foil
easy clean up

Step 2: Slice slits into potatoes, cutting about 3/4 way through. Brush with melted butter & apply generous amount of HungryHeath SPG Blend. Bake for 45 minutes.

 Step 6: Remove dish from oven & glaze chicken with the Maple Bacon Chipotle Sauce. Add slice cheese to the potato slits. Bake for 5-7 minutes, until cheese is melted.  We also heated our bread at this time.

This is a versatile dish, because the options are endless. It's also great because you can cook it all in one a pan. Experiment a little, play around with the flavors that you like. Afterwards, post your photos on Instagram & tag #thehungryheath
