Servings 4 servings


  • 1 ½ pounds of chicken breast
  • ½ cup buffalo sauce
  • ¼ cup ghee
  • 4 medium-size sweet potatoes
  • ½ cup Ranch Dressing
  • ¼ cup green onions sliced


  • Add the chicken, ghee, and buffalo sauce to the instant pot.
  • Wash the sweet potatoes under cold running water.  Poke them a few times with a fork to help them cook evenly. 
  • Place the wire rack or trivet above the chicken.  Set your sweet potatoes on top of the wire rack.  Cook on high pressure for 20 minutes. 
  • Manually release the pressure from the instant pot.  Remove potatoes and transfer them to a plate.
  • Pull apart chicken breast with two forks until it looks like pulled chicken.  
  • Set your instant pot to saute and cook for 5 minutes to reduce the buffalo sauce and coat the chicken.  Add a little more buffalo sauce if you like it spicier. 
  • Cut open the sweet potatoes and fill them with buffalo chicken.
  • Drizzle with ranch dressing and sliced green onions.
  • Serve with celery sticks and a side of ranch dressing. 


  • Make my Whole30 Ranch Dressing to put on top of the sweet potatoes.  It's so easy and delicious!
  • You can use chicken breast or chicken thighs for this recipe. 
  • I like to add a bit more buffalo sauce at the end for a creamy texture and spicy flavor.
