4 medium red or baking potatoes (about 6 ounces each)
1/2 cup bottled no-sugar-added barbecue sauce (lowest sodium available)
2 to 3 teaspoons cider vinegar
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, all visible fat discarded, cut into bite-size pieces
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon light tub margarine or liquid margarine spray
2 ounces shredded low-fat sharp Cheddar cheese
1/4 to 1/2 cup coarsely chopped green onions
1/4 cup fat-free sour cream (optional)
Pierce the potatoes in several places with a fork. Microwave on 100% power (high) for 10 minutes, or until tender when pierced to the center with a fork, turning once.
Meanwhile, in a small measuring cup or bowl, stir together the barbecue sauce, vinegar, and cayenne.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the skillet from the heat and lightly spray with cooking spray (being careful not to spray near a gas flame). Cook the chicken for 2 minutes, or until no longer pink on the outside, stirring constantly. Increase the heat to high. Stir in the barbecue sauce mixture. Cook for 1 1/2 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened slightly and the chicken is no longer pink in the center, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat.
Cut the potatoes in half. Fluff the flesh with a fork. Place 2 potato halves on each plate. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon margarine (or two sprays if using margarine spray) on each half. Sprinkle with the cheese. Spoon the chicken mixture over the potatoes. Sprinkle with the green onions. Top with the sour cream.
