Both parts of the meal are baked in the oven on a sheet pan, but not the same one because the burgers cook longer than the fries and go into the oven first. This Paleo meal prep recipe is ready in less than 1 hour. 

 

As mentioned, start with the burgers. Prep the ground chicken and zucchini, then combine with the Paleo Powder Coating in a mixing bowl. Place the burgers on a parchment paper-lined sheet pan and bake in the oven at 375 degrees for 25 minutes. While the burgers cook, cut the sweet potatoes up into fries and coat with olive oil and salt. Bake the fries in the oven for about 15 minutes, flipping and then browning them. All that’s left after is cool and store!

  • For a leaner burger, use ground chicken breast. Remember to amp up the flavor since chicken breast is leaner. 

 

  • Play around with different types of lettuce to wrap your zucchini burgers in.
