Loaded Baked Potato Crock Pot Dinner

My teenagers, who are always hungry, are loving this hearty stick-to-your-ribs dinner. It incorporates chicken and all the components of a loaded baked potato into one fantastic and tasty dish. I love it because it’s so easy! All it takes is a little prep work and you’ve got a terrific meal for a busy weeknight. You can even do some of the prepping the night before to make it even faster.
