Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.

2 tablespoon oil
2 lb chicken -- legs, thighs
1 lb pork shoulder -- boneless
