Nom-Rating: ***** (5/5)

There’s a sweet potato under there! I promise!

This recipe has been making frequent appearances on our weekly menu lately. It’s just one of those meals that uses ingredients that we almost always have on hand, comes together easily, and is super delicious! 

I know that I’m technically missing a few colors of the rainbow, but you could definitely add some chopped purple cabbage and an orange bell pepper to round it out:)

Nom-Rating: ***** (5/5)

Verdict: The only negative about this recipe is all the chopping of veggies that has to be done. However, that works okay for us right now because I’m able to pre-chop everything during one of Ellis’ naps and then the only prep I have to do right before dinner is heat up the chicken (it’s usually pre-cooked in the freezer). I cook the sweet potatoes in the crockpot during the day, so I don’t even have to turn the oven on!

    Delicious! We had buffalo chicken stuffed sweet potatoes last night. They have been a favorite of mine lately. Really any sort of stuffed sweet potato has been my jam so this looks really good!
