BBQ Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Today was the first full day of summer. I thought the best way to welcome the new season in was with a delicious, summer themed recipe. I love sweet potatoes and have been looking for an excuse to use one in a new recipe. The warm potatoes pair well with tangy bbq chicken. Plus with the corn, it’s like a summer meal all in one dish. Grab a few sweet potatoes at your local grocery store and try this fun recipe out today!
