Give these sweet potatoes a flavorful kick by adding some cinnamon-seasoned chicken and cashews. Dried cherries and raisins also elevate the texture in this topped potato to a perfect savory-sweet terriroty. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°. Bake potatoes according to recipe instructions.

Step 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add oil; swirl to coat. Add celery; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add cherries and next 5 ingredients (through salt); cook 1 minute. Stir in chicken and cashews; cook 2 minutes. Sprinkle with onions. Top potatoes with chicken mixture.

I agree with the reviewer who says the chicken mixture doesn't mix very well with the sweet potatoes - it just seemed very strange. The chicken mixture also was quite dry, so I tried mixing in some sour cream with the leftovers, to make a sort of chicken salad, but that didn't work any better with the sweet potatoes. Oh, well. None of it tasted bad per se - just strange.

The chicken/raisin/cherry mixture was dry, but it was very tasty. I don't think it mixed too well with the sweet potatoes, but I think that if there were more sauce, it would have been nice to drizzle over the potatoes.

My kids loved this dish!! It was so easy to make and the topping was amazing. I did think that some type of thin sauce may bring it all together though.
