Ingredients for Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes:

Chicken: I use boneless skinless chicken breasts for this recipe, which I marinate in Frank’s Buffalo Sauce. If you prefer chicken thighs, go for it! Chicken thighs turn out more tender than chicken breasts!

If you don’t feel like cooking chicken, no sweat! Simply buy a rotisserie chicken from the store, shred it up and put it in a big bowl, and douse it with your buffalo sauce. BOOM! Amazing buffalo chicken in 5 minutes flat.

Sweet Potatoes: The caravan for that buffalo chicken we’ve been talking about.

Buffalo Hot Sauce: What type of sauce do folks use for buffalo chicken? Buffalo sauce! I use Frank’s Red Hot Wings: Buffalo Sauce https://amzn.to/36daMvZ which isn’t extremely spicy. You can also use their hotter version or your brand of choice. You can also make your own Homemade Buffalo Sauce https://therealfoodrds.com/homemade-buffalo-sauce-whole30/! 

Feta Cheese: I love the combination of the spicy buffalo chicken with the sweet creamy sweet potatoes and tangy feta cheese on top! You can also use blue cheese for that iconic buffalo experience. If you prefer cheddar cheese, gruyere, or gouda, simply grate it up, toss it on, then put the potatoes in the oven for a few minutes to melt the cheese!

Green Onion: The finishing touch! Green onion provides amazing flavor that complements everything else in the recipe. Don’t skip it unless you hate onion or are intolerant!

How to Make Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Wash the sweet potatoes well and poke several times with a fork. Wrap in foil, place on a baking sheet and roast until very soft, about 60 to 90 minutes.

25 minutes before the sweet potatoes have finished roasting, transfer the chicken to a casserole dish (including the Frank’s Red Hot sauce).

Bake the chicken for 20 to 25 minutes, or until it is cooked through and reads 165 degrees F when tested with a thermometer.

Transfer the chicken to a cutting board once it’s cool enough to handle and use two forks to shred the meat. 

Slice open the sweet potatoes and stuff them with chicken. If desired, drizzle more sauce over the chicken for added buffalo flavor! Sprinkle with feta (or blue) cheese and green onion. Serve and enjoy!
