Barbecue Stuffed Potatoes

Pulled this one out of a Cooking Light cookbook, and have been waiting patiently for there to be decent potatoes at the grocery store.   Finally found some nice ones at the butcher shop, but they were huge, so I used half for each portion.   I had some baked chicken with Penzey's BBQ3000 seasoning on it, and mixed it with some Kraft bbq sauce and heated it through in place of the Lloyd's.     It would be fantastic with pulled pork too!
