An easy and delicious way to use up leftover pulled barbecue chicken. This makes the perfect quick lunch or dinner.
Last week I shared my barbecue pulled chicken sandwiches. Today, I’m sharing a fun and delicious way to use up those leftovers. These Barbecue Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes are the ticket. Loaded with barbecue pulled chicken, barbecue sauce, chopped bacon, green onions, and horseradish cheddar cheese. They are so good and make for a perfect quick lunch or dinner.
I ate these for lunch a few days in a row. Super easy to put together even when you have a toddler tugging on your leg. And speaking of said toddler, he loved these too. Of course I chopped up the loaded Barbecue Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes into bite-size pieces for him. He couldn’t get enough of it. His eyes would light up each time he took a bite. I love when I can tell he really loves what I made him for lunch/dinner.
