“OMIGOSH, these are amazing. I had no idea I’d love them! I’m in trouble!”
This is a note from my friend Kari. We were talking about these and she wasn’t sure about the combo, then she tried them and emailed that to me.
I share this with you because it might not sound like these 2 should go together – I mean, they aren’t peanut butter and jelly, or wine and cheese, or chocolate and (well?!?) chocolate?!
But this is a fantastic dinner! Start by baking the sweet potatoes, then simmer the chicken and BBQ sauce, then add to the sweet potatoes with 20-30 minutes left of bake time and let potatoes finish cooking!
SO DELICIOUS! Enjoy!
