So, back to what this post is about. Buffalo chicken and sweet potatoes. Two of my favorite foods. Guess what? I found a recipe that combines the two and the best part is that it is super easy and healthy! Sweet potatoes have a lot of vitamins and nutrients that our bodies need. I try to have them as often as possible so when I got this recipe in my email, I knew I had to try it. Plus, I already had everything in my kitchen anyway.
Before I go any further, I want to give recognition to the woman behind this recipe. Kristine is behind the blog BusyButHealthy and I absolutely adore it! A few months back, I signed up to receive her newsletters and I am so glad that I did. So, without babbling on too much, let's get to the recipe.
Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
- 2 medium sweet potatoes
- 6 oz chicken, shredded & chopped
- 1 cup 0% greek yogurt
- Franks hot sauce, to taste
- 1/3 cup green onions, chopped
- Garlic powder & pepper to taste
Cook sweet potatoes. Poke sweet potatoes with fork all over and microwave for 6-7 minutes on one side, flip and cook another 5-6 minutes on the other size. Time depends on size of sweet potato. You'll know when its done when a fork goes through it easily. Set aside to cool for a few minutes.
Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix together chicken, greek yogurt, hot sauce and green onions.
Cut sweet potato in half, scoop out about half the filling and replace with the buffalo chicken mixture.
Serving is 1/2 to 1 sweet potato with filling
This recipe was so good! I can not wait to have leftovers tomorrow for lunch. I really felt satisfied after eating it instead of too full to move. I wasn't sure how the greek yogurt would mix into it but it was perfect. I really recommend everyone trying this recipe out and signing up to receive Kristine's newletters.
