Chicken and Sweet Potato Mash

Another Whole30 recipe. I made this one the other night, enough to have leftovers for another meal. I make enough leftovers of most things for at least one meal, so that I am not doing as much cooking on work days. I do most cooking on my days off. It just makes my days go easier.

This was a simple recipe to create.


1 carrot, rinsed and cut into small pieces

1 large sweet potato, rinsed and skin left on

chicken broth

shredded leftover chicken, as much as you want

sesame oil

  1. Put a little sesame oil into a skillet and warm on medium heat.
  2. Place the pieces of carrot in the pan and cook while the potato is ‘baking’.
  3. Place the sweet potato onto a plate and put into the microwave. Cook for about 6 minutes.
  4. Remove the potato and plate from the microwave. Cut the potato into pieces, skin and all. BE CAREFUL: The potato is very hot.
  5. Add the potato and chicken to the skillet.
  6. Pour a little broth over the mixture in the pan. You may have to do this every so often.
  7. Cook until the potatoes and carrots are mashable.
  8. Mash everything together.


  • When reheating, add a little coconut milk and mix up. Not much is needed.
  • Grow your own produce to save money.
  • Using leftover chicken also saves you money. However, canned chicken can be used, liquid and all. You wont need as much broth if you use this product.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve with carrot, celery, and cucumber sticks, and a lemon rosemary dipping oil.
