Buffalo Chicken Potato Pockets

So I feel like it's time for me to change my site name to the "Sweet Potato Enthusiast".. ANOTHER sweet potato recipe. I just love them so much and they are easy to work with! 

This recipe is a healthy twist on the American classic, hot wings. This dish will satisfy that hot sauce craving while still helping you maintain a healthy diet. The second best thing about this recipe is how EASY it is! It's just 5 ingredients, 6 if you want garnish. This is a crockpot recipe so it's a set it and forget it kinda thing :)  Doesn't get much better than that! So let's dive in shall we??

(Below are links to crockpot and potato bags should you need them)

Ingredients-

2 Large Chicken Breasts

Directions-
