about 4 medium breasts
Spray bottom of crock pot with pan release. Lay chicken breasts flat in crock pot.

Cook on low for 5 hours.
Once chicken has cooked, remove from crock pot and let stand for 5 minutes to cool. Shred the chicken using two forks, and then mix in the remaining 1 cup of BBQ sauce.

Sweet Potatoes & Assembly
Tip: Start this step 1 hour before chicken is done cooking.
Preheat oven to 375 F. Spray a baking sheet with pan release spray.
Wash and scrub sweet potatoes. Pat dry and poke 4-5 holes in each potato using a fork. Brush lightly with olive oil or spray with pan release spray.
Lay sweet potatoes flat on baking sheet. Cook for 45 minutes, rotating each potato every 20 minutes. Potatoes will be tender when done.
Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes to cool.
Slice the potatoes in half lengthwise, cutting only deep enough to cut through the potato and not the bottom layer of skin. This helps hold the potato together.
Fill each sweet potato with a generous amount of BBQ chicken mixture and top with 2 tbsp of mozzarella cheese.
Turn oven up to broil. Place prepared potatoes back in the oven and cook for 2 minutes.
Remove from oven and serve hot!
