BBQ Chicken & Sweet Potato Casserole


There isn’t much I can say about this dish other than YUM! It’s one of those meals that was sort of created by accident then I questioned what I did because it was too simple to be that good. After remaking it, several times, I can assure you it really is just delicious, healthy and that simple. I guess I can’t take ALL of the credit since BBQ sauce poured over anything is basically perfection. Not to mention, I can’t ever stress enough my love for sweet potatoes. Combining the sweetness of the veggie with the tangy, spicy flavors of a good BBQ sauce and it becomes a party in your mouth. This grain-free and gluten-free dish will satisfy your tastebuds for sure. So don’t be deceived by its awesomeness you can enjoy this meal while sticking to your healthy living.
