How long will Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potato Skins last for?

Potatoes are great in the fridge for 5-7 days and chicken for 3-4. Don’t leave any cooked food out at room temperature for more than 4 hours – pop them into their meal prep containers and in the fridge they go! To warm your meal – we recommend removing the veggies from the small compartment and warming the potatoes in the microwave. Start with 45 seconds and increase the time until they are at the desired temperature.

Can Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potato Skins be frozen?

  1. Are you supposed to reheat the sweet potato when you are ready to eat these meals (if so, directions?) Or eat this all cold? Sorry if this is obvious to other people but I’m super new to meal prep and it’s uncertainties like this that make me hesitate to try!

    • Hey Karen – We recommend removing the veggies from the small compartment and warming the potatoes in the microwave. Start with 45 seconds and increase the time until they are heated to the desired temperature.
