Prep time: 10 min

Cook time: 60 min

Serves: 6

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt (smoked salt is super in this dish if you have it!)
  • ½ cup grated carrots
  • 2 stalks of celery, diced
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (optional)
  • 1¼ cups mayonnaise, preferably homemade (can use part plain greek yogurt if preferred)
  • 6 tablespoons cayenne pepper sauce (like Frank's red hot)
  • ¼ cup water (if needed for extra moisture)
  • 4-6 sweet potatoes
  • Fresh chopped chives for garnish

 

Instructions:

  1. Season chicken breasts with the cajun seasoning and cook either in crockpot on low for 4-5 hours or roast them until tender enough to shred. Leftovers are also good for this. Shred them up and place in a saucepan.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and bake sweet potatoes about 45 minutes until they are tender.
  3. While potatoes are baking, mix the filling. Place the chicken with all other ingredients except potatoes in a saucepan and mix together. Heat until celery becomes softer and ingredients are nice and creamy.
  4. Split open baked potatoes with a knife and top with a heaping scoop of buffalo chicken filling.
