Equipment

  • 1 large sheet pan
  • parchment paper

Ingredients
  

Sweet Potato Fries

  • 2 sweet potatoes peeled and sliced into thin "fries"
  • 1 tablespoon ghee grass-fed butter or EVOO, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Chicken-Bacon-Ranch Lettuce Wraps

  • 1 pound chicken breast butterflied
  • sea salt
  • black pepper
  • 6 slices bacon high quality such as Naked Bacon or Pederson's
  • 6 tablespoons ranch dressing such as Tessemae's or Primal Kitchen
  • 6 large romaine lettuce leaves washed, dried, and ends trimmed

Instructions
 

  • Begin by reading the recipe notes [below].
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Place sweet potato fries onto the parchment lined sheet pan. Drizzle heated ghee over the "fries" and season with salt and pepper. Mix "fries" and assemble them evenly throughout the pan being careful not to overlap. Bake for 15 minutes.
  • Remove "fries" from the oven. With a spatula, place them to one side of the sheet pan.
  • On the open side of the sheet pan, lay 6 slices of bacon followed by chicken. Return to the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Turn the oven to "Broil" and continue cooking for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Remove sheet pan from the oven and let rest/cool for at least 5 minutes. Slice chicken breast diagonally.
  • To assemble the lettuce wrap, place a large romaine lettuce leaf onto a plate. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of ranch dressings onto the lea followed by a slice of bacon and chicken breast.

Notes

*May use tortilla of choice in lieu of lettuce wrap.
Other Notes:
  • This recipe utilizes one [1] sheet pan to cook sweet potatoes, bacon, and chicken in effort to make dinner and the clean-up easier. However, if you have a second sheet pan, I highly recommend baking your sweet potatoes separately. To do this, follow step 2 and bake "fries" for 30-35 minutes.
  • Due to the natural juices and fats of the bacon and chicken breast, the sweet potatoes may become softer and more "roasted" instead of resembling "fries". An additional step to prevent this is to lay foil down for the bacon. Place foil onto the pan, place bacon into the foil, and slightly fold the edges up. This will isolate the bacon fat to one area.
  • If the possibility of soggy fries doesn't scare you, keep on keeping on! Follow the recipe steps and enjoy the added flavor!
