21 Day Fix Approved Broccoli and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts

This was a great meal that was easy to prep ahead and then throw in the oven later. And even better, it was totally kid approved! 

And for the sweet potatoes, I wrapped them in foil and threw them in the crock pot for 4-5 hours on high, or you could do longer on low.  I served them with a tsp of agave nectar and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
