Sweet Potato & Chicken Paleo Sandwich

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 45 minutes

Serves: 2-3

Chopped sweet potato on a cutting board.

Ingredients

  • 2 cooked boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 large sweet potato, sliced into disks
  • 1 tbsp. avocado oil
  • Salt & pepper

Sauce

  • ¼ cup paleo mayonnaise
  • ½ tsp. onion powder
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder

Sandwich Toppings

  • Fresh parsley
  • Tomato, sliced

Cut chicken on a cutting board.




Preparation

  1. Preheat your oven to 425˚F.
  2. Cut the peeled sweet potato into slices (that are the approximate shape and size of a hamburger bun), and place them on a baking sheet.
  3. Drizzle the sweet potatoes with avocado oil, salt, and pepper.
  4. Place the sweet potatoes in the oven and cook for 30-40 minutes total, flipping them halfway.
  5. Cook your chicken breasts - you can do this in the preheated oven by cooking it at the same time as the sweet potatoes, leave in for 25 to 30 minutes and check to make sure the internal temperature is at 165˚F.
  6. While everything cooks, it’s time to mix your sauce. In a bowl mix all the ingredients for the sauce and reserve.
  7. Once the chicken and sweet potato is out of the oven, assemble! Top sweet potato bun with sauce, chicken, tomatoes, and parsley.
  8. Customize away (I’d recommend adding onion, pickles, lettuce, etc.) and enjoy!
