Ingredients:

  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
  • Your favorite BBQ sauce
  • 1 cup shredded cheese

Instructions:

  1. Start by baking your sweet potatoes. You may wish to bake them in the oven at 400 degrees F for about an hour, or pop them into the microwave and cook them by hitting the baked potato button twice. It takes about 15 minutes in the microwave.
  2. If your chicken is not already cooked, I suggest cooking it while your sweet potatoes are baking. You can bake it alongside your sweet potatoes in the oven for the same amount of time, on the stove in a saute pan for about 30 minutes on medium, or my favorite preparation. I like cooking large batches of chicken in my crockpot periodically so I can bag up single servings of shredded chicken to keep in the freezer for quick uses.
  3. When your potatoes are ready, cut them open, just as you would for regular baked potatoes.
  4. Fill them with shredded chicken, BBQ sauce, and then lots of yummy shredded cheese.
  5. Just one potato makes for more than a meal for each of us. Yum!

Here’s a great 8 quart crockpot at a fantastic price on Amazon if you’d like to give cooking your chicken ahead of time a try.

I highly recommend purchasing a good crockpot to everyone.
