I love this combination of sweet potatoes with the blackened chicken which is why I created this Blackened Chicken-Mashed Sweet Potatoes.

SWEET & SALTY BLACKENED CHICKEN MASHED SWEET POTATOES

SWEET & SALTY BLACKENED CHICKEN MASHED SWEET POTATOES

Blacken Chicken over Mashed Sweet Potatoes

It gives your mouth a spicy, sweet kick.  The Creamy Maple Mashed Sweet Potatoes are delicious, but when you top them with spicy blackened chicken, some sweet caramelized onions, and a splash of  Worcestershire Sauce on top, it makes this dish a special treat.  This is my version of one of my favorite meals at Copeland’s Restaurant.

Copeland’s Restaurant

Copeland’s have a Wood-Grilled Chicken with Yams which is wonderful and inspired me to create something similar.  Instead of grilling my chicken,  I chop it into bite-size pieces and sauté it with blackening seasoning.  You can also bake or grill the chicken.  I added this chicken on top of a large mound of Maple Mashed Sweet Potatoes.  Next, I added some caramelized onions and a dash of Worcestershire Sauce.  I hope your family enjoys this combination as much as my family does.
