Chipotle BBQ Shredded Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Do you need an easy food prep recipe that you can change a few ingredients in to have a whole new meal each week? I did too. That’s where this recipe came from. Crockpots make cooking incredibly easy. For this recipe, you add all ingredients listed and cook on low for 6-7 hours (the more chicken the longer it cooks–max is 8 hours). All you do for the sweet potatoes and wash and bake in the oven. Doesn’t get much easier than that!

I used Bone Suckin BBQ sauce because it is my favorite. Their hot version is also delicious. I found it at Stop and Shop but you can also get it online. I linked to a recipe for BBQ sauce if you can’t find a good one.

Here are some ingredients to avoid when looking at labels:

• Sugar (anything that ends in “ose†or dextrin)

• High fructose corn syrup, corn syrup

• Canola, soybean, vegetable, sunflower oils

• Soy (tofu, soy sauce)

• Gluten (wheat, whole grain, wheat germ)

• MSG (glutamic acid, glutamate, monosodium glutamate, calcium glutamate)

• Carrageenan (algas, algue rouge marine, carrageen, chondrus extract)

See how I made it in the video below:
