Expert Tips

  • Sweet potato spirals are also called sweet potato noodles or swoodles.
  • If you’re using prespiralized sweet potatoes, measure by the ounce. We used about 16 oz sweet potato spirals in this recipe.
  • You can substitute a pound of cubed skinless boneless chicken for the chicken breasts.
  • If you don’t have pea pods, you can substitute 1/2 cup frozen or fresh peas.
  • If the sweet potatoes start browning too fast, turn heat down, and continue cooking until tender.
