Chicken Sloppy Joe on Sweet Potatoes

Chicken Sloppy Joe on Sweet Potatoes (Adapted from Canadian Living)

2 sweet potatoes
2 teaspoons canola oil, divided
16 ounces ground chicken
3/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
1 celery stalk, chopped
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 cups salsa
1/2 cup tomato juice

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Pierce sweet potatoes with a fork in several places. Place onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake until the potatoes are tender, about 40 to 60 minutes, depending on the size.

Meanwhile, in large skillet, heat 1 teaspoon oil over medium-high. Add chicken - cook, stirring to break the pieces up, until the chicken is no longer pink, about 8 minutes. Scoop out onto a plate.

Pour remaining oil into the pan and reduce heat to medium - add onion, red pepper, celery, chili powder, oregano, salt, pepper and cayenne - cook until the vegetables have softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in salsa and tomato juice - bring to boil. Stir in chicken - reduce heat and simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes.

To serve, halve the baked sweet potatoes and evenly divide the chicken mixture over each half.

Makes 4 servings.
