When the snowy weather hit Raleigh last week, I wanted something warm and filling. So, loaded sweet potatoes were the perfect choice. These turned out so well that I just had to share the recipe!
Sweet potatoes have been a staple on my Whole30. They’re a great carb source and I absolutely adore them! For breakfast I’ll make sweet potato toast; cube them and bake with cinnamon for a delicious addition to my lunch, and stuff with chicken for the perfect dinner in a pinch. They’re so versatile and great to incorporate into your Whole30 meals.
Although this recipe takes a bit longer to make, it would be perfect for meal prep and you could just assemble and warm them up when you’re ready to eat! Also the cashew ranch is the perfect touch and balances out the tangy and spicy buffalo sauce.
- 3 large sweet potatoes
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 2 large chicken breasts defrosted
- 2 1/2 tsp hot sauce
- 2 tsp lemon juice
- 8 tsp olive oil
- 1 tsp dijon mustard
- 4 tsp white vinegar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp ghee
- 1/4 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp Tessame's ranch
- 2 tbsp Forager's unsweetened cashew yogurt
Preheat oven to 375F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Slice sweet potatoes lengthwise, drizzle with olive oil and place face down on the parchment. Bake for 40 minutes or until soft. Remove and let cool for 10 minutes.
While the potatoes are baking, boil a large pot of water. Add chicken breasts to the pot and boil them for 25-30 minutes. Remove from the pot and shred with two forks.
In a large bowl whisk together all of the ingredients for the buffalo sauce until thoroughly combined. Add in the shredded chicken and toss until it is evenly coated with the buffalo sauce.
In a small bowl whisk together the ranch and cashew yogurt, then set aside. Finely chop the chives for garnishing and set aside.
To assemble, place the sweet potatoes face side up, using a fork gently make a well and fill with the shredded chicken. Drizzle with the cashew ranch and top with chopped chives.
I hope y’all give this recipe a try, and please let me know your thoughts!
