Rachel's Primal Sweet Potato Fries or Chips
Very Good 4.6/5
(13 ratings)

Here's my recipe for primal chips or fries (depending on how you slice them.) This is based off of a recipe from 150 Things to Make with Roast Chicken by Tony Rosenfeld.

If you're not "Primal to the core" you could add 1 teaspoon brown sugar to this mix.

It can be difficult to find gluten free BBQ sauce. It's even harder to find GF BBQ sauce that's fairly low in sodium. Try this and you'll find out taste doesn't have to equal salt.
