BBQ Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

This recipe is a simple way to jazz up a sweet potato. Use store-bought rotisserie chicken or pre-cooked and shredded chicken breast paired with your favorite barbecue sauce for an easy meal.  

The addition of bubbly, melty mozzarella cheese might remind you of a barbecue chicken pizza from a popular restaurant chain. 

– 1/2 cup shredded cooked chicken breast – 1/4 cup barbecue sauce – 1/4 cup diced red onion – 2 medium sweet potatoes, baked – 1 tablespoon butter – 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese – Fresh cilantro, for serving


In a medium bowl, combine the shredded chicken, barbecue sauce, and diced onions until well mixed.


Place the baked potatoes on a foil-lined baking sheet. Slice the baked potatoes down the center and use a fork to mash them slightly. Add 1/2 tablespoon butter to each potato. 

Top with the barbecue chicken mixture. Top with shredded mozzarella cheese. 

Broil on high until the cheese is melted and bubbling, about 2 to 3 minutes. 

Garnish with cilantro and serve hot.
