Healthy Chipotle Chicken Sweet Potato Skins
3 medium sweet potatoes
3/4 pound (about 2 small) boneless skinless chicken breast
1/4 cups olive oil
2 tablespoon fresh lime juice
2 cloves garlic, minced or grated
3 whole chipotle pepper, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon cumin
2 teaspoons chili powder
salt and pepper
2 (half a 10oz bag) cups spinach
5 ounces sharp white cheddar cheese, grated
chopped cilantro, for garnish
greek yogurt, for serving
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Wash your sweet potatoes and prick all over with a fork. Place in
the oven and bake for 5060 minutes or until fork tender. Place your chicken in a baking dish and rub
with a tablespoon of olive oil, salt and peper. Place in the oven with the potatoes and bake for 25
minutes. Allow to cool and shred the chicken with a fork or your hands. When the sweet potatoes are
done cut in half and allow to cool for 510 minutes.
In a medium size bowl combine the olive oil, lime juice, garlic, chipotle peppers, oregano, cumin, chili
powder, salt and pepper. Set aside.
Heat a small skillet over medium heat and wilt the spinach (this can also be done in the microwave).
Toss the spinach and shredded chicken together, set aside and keep warm.
Turn the oven up to 400 degrees. Scrape the sweet potato out of the peel, leaving a medium size
layer of flesh inside with the peel so that it can stand up on its own (I reserved the remaining flesh, for
another use) and place in a baking dish. Brush the skins with with a little of the chipotle sauce and
bake for 510 muntes until nice and crisp. While the skins bake mix the spinach, chicken and chipotle
sauce together. Remove skins from the oven and stuff with the chicken mixture, top with shredded
cheese and bake for 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the skins are hot and crisp. Serve
with fresh chopped cilantro and greek yogurt if desired.
