Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Sweet Tater

I love sweet potatoes and I love chicken so why not PAIR these two together?  Sweet potatoes are so good for you and this is such a great recipe to even make ahead and freeze!  Simply prepare without the cheddar cheese topping and then you can thaw and bake at your leisure!!!  Those night when you don’t feel like cooking, just pop one in the oven, top with cheese and EASY healthy meal!

sweet potato recipe

INGREDIENTS

4 oz of baked shredded chicken breast
Frank’s hot sauce
1 baked sweet tater
1/3 cup of cheddar cheese

While you bake your sweet tater, in a bowl, mix your shredded chicken with hot sauce.  You can choose how hot you like your heat so adjust to YOUR taste buds.  Let your tater let cool enough so you can handle it.  Scoop some of the inner tater out, being careful to leave the skin to hold its shape!  You’ll be adding your mix back to this tater as a stuffing! Place the inner tater in the chicken bowl- combine.  Add the tater/chicken mix back into the skin (its okay if its over flowing!!!) and then top with your cheese.

Bake in the oven long enough to heat through and melt your cheese.  You could get creative and add chives or green onion or other veggies you enjoy!
