Shredded BBQ Chicken

  • 4 organic chicken breasts
  • 1 bottle Primal Kitchen BBQ Sauce
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • Pink Salt, to taste
  • Ground Pepper, to taste


  • 1 head butter lettuce
  • 1/3 cup chopped purple cabbage
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots

Smashed Rosemary Potatoes

  • 1 bag small potatoes, (8-12)
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp rosemary
  • pink salt, to taste
  • ground pepper, to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F and preheat grill 15 minutes ahead of time.
  • Trim the chicken then drizzle with oil, salt + pepper, and 1/4 cup of BBQ sauce. Toss, making sure the chicken is thoroughly coated.
  • Microwave the potatoes in a large baking dish for 8 minutes, or until they are fork tender.
  • Lay the potatoes flat over parchment paper, and smash down with a flat surface (I used the bottom of a glass covered by parchment paper to prevent sticking).
  • Drizzle potatoes with oil and seasoning.
  • Bake potatoes for 25-30 minutes, flipping at the 20-minute mark.
  • While the potatoes are baking, grill the chicken. Remember to keep the lid closed to maximize heat & cooking time, and only flip once.
  • Once chicken is done, shred with 2 forks or a hand mixer. Add 1/2 cup additional BBQ sauce and toss shredded chicken.
  • Begin prepping the lettuce wraps: butter lettuce, red/purple cabbage, carrots, cilantro, BBQ chicken, and any other toppings you'd like. Pair with smashed potatoes. Enjoy!

  1. Could you make this without grilling the chicken? Would you suggest baking it? Curious as I do not have access to a grill.
