Quickie Sweet Potato Barbecue Chicken Paleo Meal

Fast, throw-together paleo meals don’t get much simpler than this – shredded chicken on a hot baked sweet potato slathered with tangy paleo barbecue sauce.

This hearty all-in-one paleo meal couldn’t be much easier – especially if you do it the lazy way: use a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken. That’s what I did because sometimes I don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen…especially when I’m hungry. And if you happen to have some pre-baked sweet potatoes on hand, well you’ve got yourself a heat and eat meal that can be ready in minutes!

So I guess this is less of a recipe and more of a quick paleo meal idea when you get right down to it.

All you have to do is bake the spuds and maybe whip up a quick batch of barbecue sauce if you don’t have any good paleo-approved stuff around.

I’d suggest you try this awesome sauce: Tangy Paleo BBQ Sauce. It’s all paleo and takes just a few minutes to make. There’s some sweetness to it from the raw honey in there and it will give your taste buds a little playful zip at the end! You can also pour it on pork, burgers, or just about anything.

By the way, the stuffed potato in the photo is a white sweet potato rather than an orange-colored yam. If you’re not familiar with them, they’re a bit less sweet and a little more starchy than a yam – something a little different you might want to try if they’re available in your area. But of course any color sweet potato will work just fine for this easy entrée.

So that’s about it…I know this stuffed potato and BBQ chicken paleo recipe is nothing fancy, but it’s all kinds of healthy with protein, veggies and fat all in one.

And best of all, it’s quick!

BBQ Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes Recipe


  • 4 medium sweet potatoes, unpeeled
  • 2-3 cups shredded chicken – I used a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken

  1. Pierce with fork and bake potatoes whole on a foil-lined cookie sheet at 400º F for about 45 minutes, or until tender (your cooking time may vary)
  2. Remove from oven and slice each potato lengthwise, but don't cut all the way through
  3. Open each potato and sprinkle with salt and pepper, then squeeze each potato a little to loosen
  4. In a small bowl, mix your pre-cooked and shredded chicken together with a generous amount of my Tangy Paleo BBQ Sauce – or use your own favorite BBQ sauce
