These tasty stuffed taters have been on my must-try list for ages. After stocking up on sweet potatoes for my baby food making escapades, I was reminded how much I love them. Not to mention, they’re nutritional powerhouses, loaded with vitamins C and D, which help knock winter colds, boost energy and keep your hair, skin and nails looking healthy!

Combined with the two foods we always have in the house (chicken and BBQ sauce – just use your favorite), dinner was decided. And it was absolutely delicious!

After just over 30 minutes of roasting, the sweet potatoes were perfectly soft and begging to be stuffed with tender BBQ chicken. Tangy, sweet, salty and melt-in-your-mouth good were the words that came to mind between bites. Served with a quick green salad, these made for a healthy and scrumptious meal.

Try these 3-ingredient stuffed taters tonight, and I know you’ll agree!

  4. Suchhh a good idea!! Basically my ideal meal :)

  5. I made these tonight after they were on Buzzfeed recently. LOVED THEM, also perfect for my Celiac son. I love when I can find a family meal that accommodates his gluten-free life.

  6. The very root of your writing whilst sounding agreeable initially, did not really settle perfectly with me after some time. Somewhere within the paragraphs you actually were able to make me a believer but just for a very short while. I however have a problem with your jumps in assumptions and one would do nicely to help fill in those gaps. In the event you can accomplish that, I would definitely be impressed.
