Pierce potatoes all over with a fork and roast in a pre-heated 400 degree oven directly on the oven rack for 90 minutes.
Using clean hands or kitchen gloves, pull apart and shred the chicken mixing the white and ark meat. Set aside until ready to use.
Saute the mushrooms in the butter in a non-stick pan over medium high heat. Add the garlic powder, salt, pepper, and herbs.
When the mushrooms have released their water, add the flour to the pan and make a roux, adding additional reserved fat to the pan if needed - you are going to make a "paste" or roux with the flour and the pan drippings. keep stirring over medium heat for about 30 seconds to take all rawness out of the flour.
Add the sherry and whisk. Add the chicken stock and continue to whisk until the gravy thickens.
Cut each potato in half and then fluff by squeezing the ends and pushing inward toward the center of the potato. Place generous amounts of chicken on each potato half and drizzle generously with the mushroom pan gravy.
