  • 1 lb organic chicken breasts
  • 1 jar of paleo bbq sauce
  • 4 cups mixed greens
  • 1 sweet potato, cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup cucumber, chopped
  • 1/2 cup beans
  • 2 tbsp kraut
  • 2 tbsp chives, diced
  • cilantro, chopped
  • paleo bbq ranch dressing


  1. In a slow cooker add 1 lb of organic chicken breasts and 1 jar of paleo bbq sauce. Cook on low for 7 – 8 hours or high for 4 hours.
  2. Once the chicken is fully cooked shred it with 2 forks on a cutting board.
  3. Roast the sweet potato in the oven for approximately 30 minutes at 400F with sea salt and pepper, tossing halfway through..
  4. Assemble the salad bowls by starting with the mixed greens, then the chicken, sweet potato, cucumber, beans and kraut. Top with fresh cilantro and chives. I used paleo bbq ranch dressing.


Keep any extra chicken stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container to use in another said or a bbq chicken sandwich!

I really enjoy this salad with a side of these grain-free nacho chips!
