Baked sweet potatoes loaded with chicken and Extra Mature Cheddar

When all else fails, this will not. Our recipe stuffs delicious baked sweet potatoes with a creamy filling of tender chicken and melted cheddar. Savoury, succulent and oh-so dreamy, a batch of these potatoes leaves nothing to the imagination.

4 servings
Cheesy Sweet


  • 4 sweet potatoes (medium size)
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp bbq sauce
  • 100 g creme fraiche
  • 100 g Castello® Extra Mature Cheddar
  • spring onions, chopped
  • salt
  • pepper


1. Scrub the skin of the sweet potatoes clean, lightly poke the skin with a fork and wrap them in tin foil. Bake on the grill at high indirect heat for about 30-35 minutes, depending on the size of the sweet potatoes.

2. Brush the chicken breads with BBQ sauce and season with salt and pepper. Grill for 6-7 minutes on each side and leave them to rest for 5 minutes. Shred the chicken breasts using two forks.

3. Slice open the sweet potatoes, and mash the insides just a bit. Top with shredded chicken, crème fraiche and grated Castello Extra Mature Cheddar.

4. Put the loaded sweet potato back on the grill with the lid closed for 2-3 minutes to melt the cheese.

5. Finish with spring onion and a bit more BBQ- or hot sauce.
