Sweet potatoes + BBQ Chicken = YUM!!!

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes


One 8-oz. (medium) sweet potato

2 oz. cooked and chopped skinless chicken breast

2 tbsp. BBQ sauce with 45 calories or less per 2-tbsp. serving

1/8 tsp. garlic powder

Dash each salt and black pepper

2 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro

1 tbsp. shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese

1 tbsp. light sour cream


Pierce potato several times with a fork. On a microwave-safe plate, microwave for 4 minutes, or until soft.

Slice off a 2-inch wide strip of potato skin, lengthwise, from the top of the potato. Carefully scoop out the insides, leaving about 1/4 inch inside the skin.

Discard half of the potato pulp (or reserve for another use). Place remaining pulp in a microwave-safe bowl. Add chicken, BBQ sauce, and seasonings. Mix well. Microwave for 1 minute, or until warm. Stir in 1 tbsp. cilantro.

Scoop mixture into the potato, and sprinkle with cheese. Microwave for 1 minute, or until potato is hot and cheese has melted.

Top with sour cream and remaining 1 tbsp. cilantro.
