Meal Prep BBQ Bowl

  • 2 cups cubed sweet potato
  • 6-8 oz shredded chicken (1-1½ cups or more, to taste)
  • drizzle of oil
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped zucchini
  • 1 cup chopped yellow squash
  • cup canned corn drained
  • 3-4 Tbsp BBQ sauce of choice
  • 1 tsp coconut aminos
  • salt & pepper, to taste

Topping Ideas:

  • squeeze of lemon juice
  • sesame seeds
  • fresh chives chopped
  • pineapple chopped
  • fresh parsley chopped


On Meal Prep Day:

  • Peel and cube sweet potato. (Keep in mind: smaller cubes will cook faster!)
  • Poach and shred chicken breast (or thighs), then allow to cool.
  • Store sweet potato & chicken in separate airtight containers in the fridge for 5-7 days.
  • If desired, chop onion, zucchini, and squash and store in airtight containers in the fridge. (Keep in mind, chopped zucchini & squash will only store well for 1-2 days. For longer storage, keep them whole and chop at the time of cooking.)

On the Day of Eating:

  • Heat oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Saute onion and sweet potato cubes for 3-4 minutes, until sweet potato begins to brown and soften. (Feel free to cover the pan to help steam the sweet potato.)
  • Add chopped zucchini and yellow squash and continue to cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Once veggies have softened, add shredded chicken and corn to heat through.
  • Season to taste with barbecue sauce, coconut aminos, salt, and pepper.
  • Remove from heat and assemble BBQ bowls with any desired toppings. Serve and enjoy!

For a Fully Prepped Meal on Prep Day:

  • Poach and shred chicken.
  • Saute sweet potato and veggies, then combine with cooked chicken and seasonings overheat.
  • Portion into individual meals if desired and store in airtight containers in the fridge for 5-7 days.
