Equipment

  • Oven
  • 9x13 Inch Baking Dish
  • Non-stick Cooking Spray
  • meat thermometer

Ingredients

  • 6 sweet potatoes
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups BBQ Sauce
  • 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • ½ red onion diced
  • 4 Tablespoons cilantro chopped

Instructions

  • Scrub the outside of each potato and remove any blemishes.
  • Poke the outside of each sweet potato multiple times with a fork then place on a baking sheet and place on the middle oven rack. 
  • Heat oven to 425 degrees and bake for 45 minutes, or until a fork easily presses into the center.
  • Meanwhile, spray a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Place chicken breasts in prepared pan and cover with BBQ sauce.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or place in the oven with the sweet potatoes for the last 20 minutes of cooking. Make sure chicken is cooked all the way through.
  • Remove chicken and sweet potatoes from the oven.
  • Shred cooked BBQ chicken.
  • Cut each sweet potato down the middle and fill with shredded chicken.
  • Divide mozzarella cheese, red onion and chopped cilantro evenly between each potato and put on top of each baked potato.
  • Broil on high for 2-3 minutes, or until cheese is completely melted.
  • Serve hot.

Notes

  • After the chicken was done cooking, I shredded it but you could also dice it if you prefer. 
  • If you are short on time, you could easily use shredded rotisserie chicken and toss it in BBQ sauce and you are good to go.
