Guys. Wanna know something crazy. I just bought school supplies yesterday!

Is it already that time of year? How did the summer go by so fast?

I had so many things I wanted to do. One of them being, going to Florida as a family and hanging out at the beach. But I don’t think that’s going to happen this year. We were going back and forth on whether or not it would be “fun” to bring a 6 month old to the beach. Especially since she can’t really be in the sun until she’s 6 months. So I guess that’s next years plan. Hopefully we can find another couple to go with that has kids and will split the cost of an AIRBNB. Any takers?

Since we are on the subject of school starting… ugh.

I guess it’s that time of year for quick weeknight meals. Huh?

Today’s recipe definitely fits that quick weeknight meal category.

BBQ Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes topped with an easy Broccoli Slaw. You’ll love the short cuts I take so that these stuffed sweet potatoes are on the table in less than 30 minutes!

The first short cut is using Rotisserie Chicken. Guys it’s already cooked! All I do is tear the white meat part off (I don’t use the dark) shred it and then toss it with some BBQ Sauce. BBQ Chicken part… done.

Then I wash off my sweet potatoes. Stab them a couple times. Wrap them in paper towel and put them in the microwave to cook. I just pressed the “baked potato” option and let it go. But I understand some of you might not have that, so just cook it on HIGH for 5-8 minutes (depending on size). Potato part… done.

Then for the slaw part I bought packaged broccoli slaw and add a quick vinaigrette to it. Instead of a cream based I did more vinegar based so it balances out of the sweetness from the BBQ sauce and sweet potatoes. That way it doesn’t feel so heavy on your tummy.

  1. Baking or roasting sweet potatoes really brings out their naturally sweet flavor. And rather than cooking the chicken myself, I picked up a prepared rotisserie chicken from the grocery store, shredded it, then added my favorite barbecue sauce to it.
