The remnants of yesterday’s finished chicken can be used deliciously by preparing a new quick dish in the sweet potato tuber. The tuber is baked in a peel in the microwave, then the pulp is scooped out of it, mixed with pieces of chicken and grated cheddar, and again laid out in the tuber. Cheddar melts well in the hot pulp of sweet potato, making its texture more creamy and viscous. Pour the finished tuber with green salsa and add slices of avocado for satiety. A tasty and healthy dinner, after which you will have a minimum of dirty dishes.

Half a small avocado
