The Power of Sweet Potato Chips

Kettle Cooked in Avocado Oil

Before we get into the nitty-gritty of the recipe, let's take a moment to appreciate Jackson's Sweet Potato Chips. These chips are not your average snack; they are kettle-cooked in nutrient-rich avocado oil. Avocado oil is known for its heart-healthy fats and its ability to withstand high cooking temperatures without breaking down, making it the ideal oil for crispy delights.

Anti-Inflammatory Ingredients

Sweet potatoes, the main ingredient of these chips, are a nutritional powerhouse. Packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, sweet potatoes have anti-inflammatory properties that can benefit your overall health. Incorporating them into your diet can help combat inflammation and boost your immune system.

The Recipe


  • 1 bag of Jackson's Sweet Potato Chips
  • Flour of your choice (for a gluten-free option, consider almond or coconut flour)
  • Egg
  • Pasture-raised chicken breasts


  1. Start by crushing your Jackson's Sweet Potato Chips. You can use a food processor or place them in a resealable bag and gently crush them with a rolling pin. The goal is to create fine crumbs.

  2. Cut your chicken breasts into strips, ensuring they are of similar size for even cooking.

  3. Prepare your breading station. In one bowl, add your flour of choice. In another bowl, whisk the egg until well-beaten. In a third bowl, place the crushed sweet potato chips.

  4. Dip each chicken strip into the flour mixture, ensuring they are evenly coated. Then, dip them into the beaten egg, allowing any excess to drip off.

  5. Finally, coat each chicken strip with the sweet potato chip crumbs, pressing them gently to adhere.

  6. For a healthier cooking option, consider using an air fryer or oven baking. In the air fryer, cook the chicken tenders at 375°F (190°C) for about 10-12 minutes, flipping them halfway through. In the oven, preheat to 425°F (220°C) and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C). Be sure to flip them as needed for even browning.

  7. Once your sweet potato chip-crusted chicken tenders are golden brown and crispy, it's time to enjoy!
