  • 4 medium sweet potatoes

For Buffalo Chicken:

  • 1 lb (approx. 3 medium) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder

For Homemade Buffalo Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup hot sauce (I like Franks hot sauce)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

For Greek Yogurt Ranch:

  • 1/2 cup plain full fat greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp dill weed
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp coconut sugar
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

For serving:

  • sliced green onion


  1. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Place the sweet potatoes on a lightly greased baking tray and bake for 55-65 minutes or until a fork can easily be inserted into the flesh of the potatoes.
  3. When the sweet potatoes have about 10 minutes left, combine 1 chicken breast (6 oz) chicken with 3-4 Tbsp Frank’s Red Hot sauce, seasoned with sea salt and black pepper in 1 tbsp olive oil.  Cook through.

  4. Now, to make our homemade buffalo sauce, in a mixing bowl, combine ingredients and whisk together.
  5. Now, drizzle the buffalo sauce over the diced chicken, and toss to coat.
  6. In a mixing bowl, add ingredients for Greek yogurt ranch and whisk to combine.
  7. Once the sweet potatoes are done baking, let cool slightly. Once cool, cut the sweet potatoes open and shred the flesh from the skin so that the inside is mashed and easy to scoop out.
  8. Evenly spread the buffalo chicken mixture on top of the 4 sweet potatoes.
  9. Top with Green onions and Greek yogurt ranch drizzle.
