  • 2 large sweet potatoes pricked with a fork
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 clove garlic grated
  • 1 tbsp ginger grated
  • ½ cup natural peanut butter
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 1 ½ tbsp reduced sodium tamari
  • 1 tsp coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 cooked skinless boneless chicken breast shredded
  • 1 cup broccoli finely diced
  • ½ cup snap peas thinly sliced


  • Sriracha for garnish
  • 2 green onions light green and white parts only, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup unsalted peanuts crushed


  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Place the sweet potatoes in the microwave on a heat proof dish on high for about 8-10 minutes, or until very tender when pricked with a fork. Once cool enough to touch, cut in half lengthwise and scoop out the insides into a bowl, leaving a thin shell around the edges.
  • In a small saucepan heat the coconut oil over medium heat. Add in the garlic and ginger and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add in the peanut butter, broth, tamari, coconut sugar, lime and sesame oil and reduce the heat to low. Stir until very smooth then remove from the heat.
  • Add the chicken, broccoli, snap peas and ¾ of the sauce to the sweet potato flesh, along with a generous pinch each of salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Stuff the sweet potato shells with the mixture, then place them in the oven for about 15 minutes until the skin gets lightly crispy and the mixture warms through.
  • To serve, drizzle with the remaining peanut sauce, add sriracha to taste, and garnish with green onions and crushed peanuts.
