Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Sweet Potatoes

If you are an enchilada chicken fanatic, you will love these lightly laden sweet potatoes. The combination of spicy enchilada sauce with sweet potatoes is addicting! I like topping mine with cheddar cheese, sour cream, spring onions, and coriander. And if you haven't made sweet potatoes in the slow cooker before, you'll never cook them any other way – it's my favorite way of cooking them. They are so tender and delicious!

Slow cooker with sweet potatoes and chicken.

I love chicken enchiladas, which is probably evident in all of my enchiladas recipes, like this classic and these enchiladas verdes. So I wondered why I shouldn't turn it up and have the enchilada filling and put it on a sweet potato instead. The results were delicious!

This recipe is a one-pot dish all cooked in the slow cooker when using enchilada sauce. Even so, I strongly recommend using my homemade recipe for enchilada sauce. It makes all the difference and is pretty quick to do.

For best results, you will need a 6-liter slow cooker to cook this dish. You need enough space to cook four potatoes and chicken breasts. Of course, if you don't have a big enough saucepan, you can always bake the sweet potatoes.

Food preparation

These healthy chicken enchilada sweet potatoes are a very filling and easy dinner. They are great for preparing meals. You can cook the chicken and potatoes in advance and then stuff the potatoes and add the toppings before eating.
