Paleo Thai Chicken Stuffed Sweet Taters

There is amazing yumminess going on in these sweet potatoes.

This is a ‘stick to your ribs’ kind of meal and usually provides us with leftovers, which I quickly mash together and hide in the fridge so the hubs doesn’t eat it.  I really am a good sharer, but I think the mashed, let it sit a day, concoction might edge out the fresh out of the oven concoction.
