Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I prefer my sweet potatoes savory and this is a yummy way serve them. I loved the addition of the bell peppers and chicken. These are hearty enough for a meal, but could be cut into smaller pieces for an appetizer. And there's no such thing as too much cheese!

Ingredients

1
large sweet potato
2
mini sweet bell peppers
1/2
grilled chicken breast
1/2 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
curry
1/4 tsp
paprika
3/4 - 1 c
cubed mozzarella and sharp cheddar cheese
1 tsp
olive oil
1 Tbsp
chopped cilantro
1/4 c
teriyaki sauce

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven 425. Bake the whole sweet potato until tender (about 30-40 minutes).
2In the meantime, slice bell peppers lengthwise and slightly char them over open flame on stovetop. Set aside.
3Let potato cool (10 minutes). Slowly cut potato lengthwise. Lower oven temp to 350.
4Using a spoon, carefully scoop out potato meat, leaving the skins as in tact as possible.
5Mix the potato with chopped grilled chicken breast, bell peppers, and all spices.
6Layer potato mixture, cheese, potato mixture, then finally cheese, into the potato skins.
7Oil your baking pan. Place potatoes into pan.
8Bake uncovered for 35-40 minutes, until cheese is melted and slightly browning.
9Garnish with cilantro and serve with teriyaki sauce on the side.
