This Chicken, Spinach, Mushroom, and Feta Stuffed Sweet Potato recipe makes a healthy and filling dinner!How many ways can I stuff a sweet potato? Let me count the ways. I can stuff it to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach. And then I keep on stuffing it.
Sweet potatoes are meant to be stuffed. Take a perfectly cooked sweet potato, add a tasty filling with more vegetables and protein, and boom. You’ve got a complete meal.
I tried something different with this stuffed sweet potato recipe. A reader recently commented that she cooks her sweet potatoes in the crockpot. Woah. That changes everything. I thought, well what if I cook the tators in the crockpot and then have a super quick filling? What then? The result was having a dinner I could get home and have ready to eat in less than 20 minutes. Cooking the sweet potatoes in the crockpot doesn’t make for crispy skin like if you’d baked them in the oven. A perfectly acceptable trade-off, in my opinion, to have the longest cooking part done at dinner time.
If you are a vegetarian, make a simple swap of chickpeas for the chicken. They will add protein and work nicely with the other ingredients. If you’re dairy-free, simply leave the feta off or sprinkle the filling with nutritional yeast. This recipe is naturally gluten-free. Make this recipe work for you because it’s a great meal.
