Ingredients

  • 4 medium sweet potatoes, scrubbed
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, chopped or sliced
  • ½ cup BBQ sauce
  • 2 ears corn, cooked or 1 cup cooked sweet corn
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup black beans
  • 1 small tomato, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons + ¼ cup chopped chives or green onions
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil mayo
  • 2 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice (or distilled vinegar)
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper

Instructions

  1. Prick sweet potatoes all over with a fork and place in the bottom of a slow cooker that has been coated with non-stick cooking spray. Cook on low heat for 7-8 hours or on high heat for about 4 hours, or until tender.
  2. Just before potatoes are done cooking, make the buttermilk dressing. Whisk together the mayo, buttermilk, lemon juice, garlic, onion powder, parsley, salt, black pepper and 2 tablespoons chives.
  3. Heat the BBQ sauce in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Turn heat to low and let cook until heated through, about 4 to 5 minutes. 
  4. Carefully slice open each potato lengthwise and stuff with chicken mixture. Top with corn, bell pepper, beans, tomatoes, chives and cheese. Drizzle with buttermilk* dressing.
