Potatoes. I love potatoes.

And stuffed with all kinds of yummy vegetables to make a great lunch, well, I’m there!

This recipe comes from that old favorite, chicken pot pie. But instead of a warm and bubbly bowl of that rich traditional dish, now you can have it as a fresh-vegetable inspired baked potato meal!

And this is the perfect lunch meal or dinner side that will warm you from the cold chill outside. And cold it has been lately!

But be sure to keep this recipe handy, as it is fabulous to make all year-round; take it from a potato lover!

Genius!
