red potatoes (about 6 oz. each)
1/2 cup bottled barbecue sauce
2 to 3 tsp. cider vinegar
1/4 tsp. cayenne
vegetable oil spray
12 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breasts (all visible fat discarded, cut into bite-size pieces)
fat-free no-calorie liquid margarine spray
2 oz. reduced-fat, shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1/4 to 1/2 cup finely chopped green onions (green and white parts)
Pierce the potatoes in several places with a fork. Microwave on 100 percent 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 vegetable oil 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. Add 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 with a fork. Place 2 potato halves on each plate. Lightly spray each half with 2 pumps of liquid margarine spray. Sprinkle with the cheese. Spoon the chicken mixture over the potatoes. Sprinkle with the green onions.
