Ingredients

  • 1/2 Tsp five spice powder (divided)
  • 2 Tsp ginger (grated)
  • 1 Pound ground white meat chicken
  • 1 Large bunch broccoli (cut into florets)
  • 1 red pepper (chopped)

Sauce

  • 6 Tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 Tsp chili garlic sauce

Note

Once your chopping is done, this meal comes together in literally 10 minutes. You could substitute any vegetables for the broccoli and red pepper - mushrooms, green beans, or zucchini would all work great. Ground turkey or beef could also be used in place of the chicken.

Directions

1. Pierce the sweet potatoes all over with a fork. Micowave for 4 minutes, turn them over, and microwave another 4-5 minutes, until soft. Remove and let them sit until they are cool enough to handle. Slice them lengthwise and scoop out the flesh, leaving the skins intact.
2. Mash the flesh in a large bowl with 1/4 tsp five spice powder. Stuff the mashed sweet potato back in the shells, dividing it evenly among all four shells. Set aside.
3. Heat a large non stick wok or skillet over medium high heat and spray with cooking spray. Add ginger and cook for about 30 seconds. Add ground turkey and 1/4 tsp five spice powder and cook until fully cooked through and beginning to brown. Remove to a plate and set aside.
4. Add broccoli and red pepper to skillet and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add ground turkey and sauce to the skillet and cook until everything is coated with the sauce and heated through.
5. Spoon turkey mixture on top of sweet potatoes and dig in!
