This is the Thanksgiving side that keeps on giving. With sweet potatoes, perfectly seasoned chicken and tart cranberries finished with Sharp Cheddar, it's almost a meal in itself.

Ingredients
  • 4 medium sweet potatoes (about 2 pounds)
  • 2 tsp. butter or oil
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 3/4-inch chunks
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper, or more to taste
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup Sargento® Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese - Traditional Cut, divided
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted
Directions
  1. Place potatoes on baking sheet. Bake in preheated 400°F oven 55 to 60 minutes or until tender. (Or, place on microwave safe plate; microwave at high power 8 to 9 minutes or until tender, turning after 5 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes.)
  2. Meanwhile, melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken, cumin, salt, cinnamon and cayenne pepper; sauté 4 minutes. Add broth and cranberries; simmer 4 to 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and cranberries are plump.
  3. Split potatoes down center; fluff with fork and transfer to serving plates. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons cheese into each potato. Spoon chicken mixture over potatoes; top with remaining cheese and pecans.
