An incredible combination of chicken, caramelized onions, sweet potato, bbq sauce, cheddar cheese and bacon!

While potatoes are baking, heat a skillet over medium-low heat and add olive oil. Add sliced onions, 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. sugar and cook until caramelized, stirring occasionally, for 15-20 minutes. Add shredded chicken to a bowl and mix with 1/3 cup BBQ sauce. Set aside.
