Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    1 medium sweet potato (about 6 ounces)
    2 tablespoons chopped red onion (about 1/4 small onion)
    1/4 bell pepper, diced (about 1/4 cup)
    3 ounces cooked skinless chicken breast, chopped
    1 tablespoon barbecue sauce
    1 tablespoon shredded reduced-fat Cheddar
    1 tablespoon fat-free Greek yogurt
    1 teaspoon chopped cilantro

Tips

In summer, swap corn for the peppers.
Meatless Meal: Use 1/2 cup drained and rinsed pinto or black beans in place of the chicken.


Directions

Pierce the sweet potato several times with a fork or knife. Microwave until tender.
Meanwhile, place a small skillet over medium heat and coat with cooking spray. Add the onions and cook for about three minutes, until they start to brown, then add the peppers and chicken.
Cook another two minutes, then stir in the barbecue sauce and one tablespoon water. Turn off the heat.
Place the sweet potato on a cutting board and use a knife to cut open the top. Scoop out most of the flesh and add to the pan with the chicken and veggies.
Place the sweet potato in a bowl, then gently scoop the chicken and veggies into and on top of it.
Top with the Cheddar, yogurt and cilantro, and serve immediately.

Serves 1.

    A lot more delicious than I expected! The only thing I did differently was substitute fat free sour cream for the Greek yogurt (not a yogurt fan). Otherwise, everything was the same. I will definitely be making this again! - 4/17/13

    This was the first time I've ever made anything like this with a sweet potato, I didn't think the cheddar would be a good taste combination. I was surprised how good it tasted, but since I am not a cilantro fan, I left that part out! - 5/5/13

    This was awesome combination! Delicious and nutritious! I love sweet potatoes but would not have thought of the barbecue sauce. I added a tsp of honey. - 5/6/13

    Used low fat bbq sauce and fat free Borden's cheese for greater calorie and fat savings. - 5/5/13

    So yummy! Not a fan of cilantro so I skipped that but this was really good. I made the recipe for four servings and eyeballed the BBQ sauce but I'll be sure to measure next time to track nutrition properly. We will be making this again! Husband LOVED it! - 12/9/13

    Who knew sweet potatoes and BBQ chicken would go together so well? We found this recipe to be bursting with sweet-tangy-creamy flavors, and quite hearty. Loved it! - 6/12/13

    Why why why does almost every recipe have bitter cilantro,
    jalepinos, etc. ? I always leave them out. But why have they been added anyway. We all don't have Mexican tastes.

    This recipe was fun and easy to make, and turned out to be a very filling and delicious meal. The potatoes I used were too big, so the potato ended up overpowering the other ingredients. But with smaller potatoes, I'm sure there would be a better balance. Will definitely be making this again! - 2/23/14

    That was a different spin using a sweet potato as I had my doubts. I also substituted fat free sour cream as that's what I had available. Very well presented and I'll have to try this with a regular potato and substitute bbq sauce with salsa. - 2/14/21

    I loved it! I used sauteed onion, bell pepper, and ham. (I used ham because I had it!) I omitted the other ingredients, mostly because I didn't have them. (I omitted the cilantro because I can't stand the stuff!!!) It's quick, easy, and tasty! Five stars! - 9/1/18
