Baked Sweet potatoes and Wings

There are days when I get intense cravings for “Outside food”, anything outside my regular diet combination. My first instinct is usually Pizza, then Chinese then burgers. These days I have developed a little phobia for outside food; I have been doing lots of research on restaurant and menu development, the more I know the less happy I am about eating out. Anyways, I wanted something different a few nights ago and I came up with this combination. Please let me know if you try it.
