Sweet potatoes + chicken and cheese? Yes, please!

Ingredients

    sea salt & black pepper to taste

    garlic powder to taste

    dried basil to taste

    6 oz. cooked chicken

    1 oz. parmesan cheese

    2 med. sweet potato

    1/2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

    1/2 tbsp. butter

    2 c. spinach

Directions

Preheat oven to 400ºF.

Wash sweet potatoes with a kitchen rag or vegetable brush. Poke sweet potatoes with a fork a couple of times, and coat with olive oil using a spray bottle or your hands. Bake sweet potatoes for 45 minutes to an hour, until soft.

Melt butter in a pan, add spinach and seasonings, and sauté until cooked and spiced to taste.

When sweet potatoes are soft, remove them from the oven and let cool for a few minutes. Cut an opening in the top of each potato, lengthwise, and push on both ends to open them up a bit. Remove some of the guts from the sweet potatoes to create space for 1 cup of sautéed spinach per potato. Now, add about 3 ounces of shredded chicken to each sweet potato on top of the spinach. Top each with about ½ ounce of parmesan cheese (optional).

Return potatoes to the oven for 5-10 minutes to incorporate flavors and melt cheese.
