One of our favorite summer meals is to grill barbecue chicken, served with a side of sweet potato fries and a green vegetable or side salad.  Barbecue Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potato is kind of a spin on the meat and potatoes of that meal, only simplified.  Instead of peeling and cutting the sweet potatoes, just scrub, poke and bake.  For the chicken, I typically utilize one of three go-to options:  1) The easiest option is to use any leftover Baked Barbecue Chicken; 2) Poach and shred chicken breast; or 3) Pick up a rotisserie chicken from the store and shred it.  With whichever method is used, just toss the shredded chicken in a sauce pan with additional barbecue sauce to warm up and moisten the chicken.

Last Sunday, the Sunday Supper Movement partnered up with American Family Insurance as they launch their Back to the Family Dinner Campaign.  The theme was big Sunday Supper meals that make leftovers to be reinvented into Weekday Suppers.  Barbecue Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potato is one of my favorite recipes for using up leftover Baked Barbecue Chicken, and I am pleased for the opportunity to share this with you for this Weekday Supper!…

Baked Barbecue Chicken ~ easy and healthy!

Baked  Barbecue Chicken is a quick and easy recipe for enjoying a classic favorite, made in a healthy way.  For some reason, Barbecue Chicken always makes me think of summer, but we enjoy this dish no matter what the weather is outside – even when there are several feet (!!) of snow on the ground!  Perhaps it’s a little too early to be discussing snow…

The concept of Baked Barbecue Chicken is not new to the blog.  I have made a few tweaks to the previous recipe to simplify the process and yield a shorter cooking time ~ all with great results.   This recipe is very easy.  You can make your own barbecue-style sauce (like this easy pantry sauce or this one if you like some spice).  If you prefer, a store-bought sauce also works great.  The recipe can easily be adjusted to yield more or fewer servings to fit your needs.   I like to make plenty of extras because barbecue chicken is so versatile  and leftovers can be transformed into something different for a quick and easy weeknight supper….
