In large nonstick skillet, cook chicken over medium-high heat, breaking up with wooden spoon, until no longer pink, about 8 minutes. Transfer to bowl.

Add oil to pan; cook onion, celery, green pepper, chili powder, oregano, salt, pepper and cayenne over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes.

Add salsa and tomato juice; bring to boil. Return chicken to pan; reduce heat and simmer until no liquid remains, about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, with fork, pierce potatoes all over; microwave at High until tender, about 9 minutes. Cut in half; top with chicken mixture.

Additional information :

Substitution: Use ground turkey, beef or pork instead of the chicken.

Tip: After topping potatoes with chicken mixture, you can sprinkle them with 1 cup (250 mL) shredded Monterey Jack cheese, then broil until cheese is melted, about 1 minute.
