• 4 baking potatoes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 160 g unsmoked back bacon, roughly chopped
  • 140 g cooked roast chicken, cut into small pieces
  • 100 g bag young leaf spinach
  • 100 g mature British cheddar, grated


  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 180ºC, fan 160ºC, gas 4. Prick the potatoes with a fork to prevent them splitting in the oven and bake for 45 minutes.

  2. 2

    Just before the potatoes are due to be ready, heat the oil in a small frying pan and cook the bacon for 5 minutes. Add the chicken and toss with the bacon for 1 minute to warm through. Stir through the spinach and half the grated cheddar.

  3. 3

    Remove the potatoes from the oven, make a cross in each and ease open. Fill with the cheesy bacon and chicken mixture and top with the remaining cheddar. Heat under a hot grill until the cheese is melted and bubbling. Season with a little freshly ground black pepper and serve.
