Recipe for baked sweet potatoes with pulled chicken

Here you get the recipe for a really delicious dinner with sweet potatoes, pulled chicken, feta creme and parsley pesto. The sweet potatoes complement the salty feta crème wonderfully. This is a different meal that you may not have tried before but we can definitely recommend making it - it’s so good!

The sweet potatoes are baked in the oven for more or less an hour while you make the homemade parsley pesto and your creamy and delicious feta crème. When the potatoes have cooled off a little bit they are sliced open and stuffed with your juicy chicken and then topped with the savory feta crème. It is a really simple dish and it’s great if you want to try something new.

What type of feta cheese should I use?
For the feta crème we recommend you buy a creamy whole block feta and not those pre-diced salad cubes. The creamy full block feta will blend more easily and you get a much creamier consistency.
