Ingredients

  • ½ tablespoon + 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 medium sweet potatoes
  • 2 cups free range organic breast chicken — cut into cubes
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 cup white onions — diced
  • ½ tablespoon garlic clove — minced
  • ½ cup yellow bell pepper — chopped
  • ½ cup red bell pepper — chopped
  • ¼ cup sun-dried tomato — chopped
  • 3 cups spinach
  • 3 tablespoons goat cheese from Woolwich Dairy

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
  2. Rub the skins of the potatoes with ½ tbsp. olive oil.
  3. Poke them with a fork a few times and place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil.
  4. Bake until tender, about 40-60 minutes (it will depend on the size of the potatoes).

Make the filling:

  1. While potatoes are cooking, season the chicken with salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  3. Add the chicken to the skillet and cook for 5 minutes or until it’s cooked through. Set aside.
  4. In the same skillet, add onions and cook for five minutes or until onions start to soften. Then, add garlic and cook for one more minute.
  5. Add bell peppers and sun-dried tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes.
  6. Add spinach and sauté until it's all wilted and add the cooked chicken.
  7. Cut the sweet potato in half lengthwise (without cutting them all the way down) and stuff them with the chicken spinach mixture.
  8. Sprinkle the goat cheese on each sweet potato. Top with fresh parsley. Serve immediately.
