BBQ Ranch Chicken-Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

I made these this week for one of my clients, and was legitimately sad that I didn’t get to eat them. I suppose I could always just prepare them at home right? If you’re pressed for time this meal can easily be prepared ahead of time by roasting the sweet potatoes, boiling the chicken, and making…
