Ingredients
  • 4 large sweet potatoes
  • 4 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped smoked chicken
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Wash the sweet potatoes, scrubbing them well to remove any dirt or soil. With a fork, prick the sweet potatoes. Place on the oven rack; bake about 45 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center goes in easily. Remove the potatoes from the oven.

Carefully cut off 1/3 of each potato lengthwise. Scoop out and remove the pulp from the potato, leaving a 1/4-inch-thick shell. Scoop out all pulp from the potato tops, and discard the tops.

In a large bowl, mix well the potato pulp, butter, salt, smoked chicken and cayenne. Fill the potato shells with the hot mixture, mounding it slightly. Serve immediately.
