Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, Chicken, and Chickpeas

So, once upon a time, I hated sweet potatoes. Like detested it with a passion. Then I found the wonder that is sweet potato fries. Ever since then, I’ve had a craving for baked and fried sweet potatoes. Luckily, I came to my senses and now almost make up things to put

sweet potatoes in. The other night, I was trying to figure out what to have for dinner. As you know, I’m all about using what I have in the house to make some pretty awesome dishes (if I do say so myself). A quick look in the refrigerator and I knew exactly what I was going to make….. Oven Roasted Sweet Potatoes! Check out the recipe below and see how I made this wonderful dish.
