-45g (1/4 cup) almonds, chopped

-Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan forced. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper. Cut sweet potatoes in half lengthwise. Place cut side up on the prepared tray. Spray lightly with oil and season. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until softened and lightly golden.
-While sweet potatoes are cooking, combine chicken, broccolini, and onion in a large bowl and set aside.
-Reduce the oven temperature to 200°C/180°C. Scoop the soft flesh from the sweet potatoes, leaving a 5mm-thick shell. Add the sweet potato flesh to the chicken mixture, along with half the cheddar. Stir together. Spoon the sweet potato and chicken filling into the sweet potato shells, piling high. Sprinkle over the almonds and remaining cheddar.
