Makes 6 servings  21 Day Fix Portion: 1/2 Yellow, 1/2 Red, 1/2 Blue

Ingredients

  • 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
  • 2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 (half a 10oz bag) cups spinach
  • 5 ounces sharp cheddar cheese
  • chopped cilantro, for garnish
  • Greek yogurt, for serving

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Wash your sweet potatoes and prick all over with a fork. Place in the oven and bake for 50-60 minutes or until fork tender.
  3. Place your chicken in a baking dish and rub with a tablespoon of olive oil, salt and pepper. Place in the oven with the potatoes and bake for 25 minutes. Allow to cool.
  4. Shred the chicken with a fork or your hands.

  8. 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 (reserve the remaining flesh for another use later) and place in a baking dish. Brush the skins with a little of the chipotle sauce and bake for 5-10 minutes, until nice and crisp.
  9. 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.
