Loaded Greek Sweet Potatoes

HEALTHY & BENEFICIAL! MANY ways to make this. Over Sweet Potato Fries, over Baked Sweet Potatoes and Vegis (Options below)… But, here’s what we did:

Oil (Hot Chili Oil, Coconut, Olive Oil (What we used)… Any, works)
Sweet Potatoes, diced (Fry option below)
1 can Artichokes, drained
Black Olives, halved
Red Onions
Sprinkle Garlic Powder,  Pepper, Sea Salt (Optional, we skip salt)

Easy Greek Marinade (Or try Tay’s Greek Marinade):
Chicken
1T McCormick’s Gourmet GREEK Seasoning
1.5tsp McCormicks Montreal Steak Seasoning
2T Worcestershire
1tsp Dijon

Toppings:
Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
Tay’s Avocado Tzatziki (Below) (Or Guacamole)
Fresh Tomatoes
Crumbled Feta Cheese

DIRECTIONS: Marinade Chicken 4-8 hours. Toss Potatoes and Artichokes with a lil Oil (We used Olive). Place into Foil. Grill both Chicken and Potatoes (Separately). Add Potato mix to bowl. Top with Chicken. Top with Toppings and Cheese Mix. OR TOP ALL ONTO Pita Breads!

Tay’s Avocado Tzatziki:
1 Ripe Avocado, mashed
1/2c Sour Cream, or to taste
1-2T Mayo
1T Grated Parmasen Cheese
1tsp Lemon Juice (100% fridge kind)
1c Cucumber, peeled, seeded, grated
1/4tsp Garlic Powder
1/2tsp McCormick’s Gourmet Greek Seasoning
1/4tsp Dill Weed
1/8tsp Mustard Powder
1/8tsp Sea Salt


NOTES/OPTIONS:
 -Or, Marinade Chicken, cut up. Add Chicken, Potatoes, Artichokes, Onions, and Olives to baking dish. Bake. Top with Toppings.
 -Cut Sweet Potatoes to fries, toss with Oil, season. Bake. Cook rest (Together or separately up to you). Top all onto Fries.
 -Also, you can skip tzatziki and use Marinaded Cucumbers and Onions (Skip onions with vegis). Eat on Pitas, or over Sweet Potato Vegi Mix, or Sweet Potato Fries! Here’s a Sour Cream Cucumber and Onion Recipe I found:
2 cucumbers, thinly sliced
1/2 small white onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons white sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons dried dill, or to taste
1/2c Sour Cream, or to taste

Salt & Pepper Cucumber slices. I set into strainer in fridge for about 15minutes. Bring to boil, Vinegar, Water, and Sugar. Add Cukes to bowl. Pour over. Allow to marinate 1 hour.
Sour Cream Version: Drain, reserving 1-2T Marinade. Stir in 1/3c Sour Cream with reserved Marinade.
