Whole30 Caesar Salad Stuffed Potato
A stuffed potato is the best on Whole30. It feels indulgent but you know it’s packed with fabulous ingredients. They take a little prep, but they are so worth it. It is a great family dinner because everyone can make it their own.
We have a delicious Whole30 Stuffed Potato on the blog that I absolutely love, but I wanted to develop one with chicken. That’s how we developed this Whole30 Caesar Salad Stuffed Potato. It’s not too many ingredients, but it’s the perfect combination of flavors.
How to Make Your Whole30 Stuffed Potato
To begin your Whole30 Stuffed Potato, roast up the potatoes. Season them with a bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Place them in the oven at 375º for about an hour to an hour and twenty minutes. While that cooks, prep your toppings for the potatoes.
For the chicken, create your lovely marinade by whisking all of the ingredients in a bowl. Pour the marinade over the chicken, and let it sit for at least 30 minutes. This gives it just enough time to soak up the lovely flavors of the marinade.
Once it’s marinated, heat oil in a skillet. Once it is hot, add your chicken and cook for about four minutes per side until it is browned. Then lower the heat and cover it until it is cooked through. And then you have your chicken ready for your stuffed potato.
Every good stuffed potato needs a fabulous dressing in my opinion. For this one, we went with a caesar dressing. In a jar, crack your egg and slowly incorporate the oil with an immersion blender. Then, add in your other ingredients and continue to blend. Refrigerate while you finish prepping your stuffed potato.
Assemble Your Stuffed Potato
When your potatoes are done, you are ready to start assembling. Slice open your potatoes. Carefully scoop out the filling and place it in a bowl. Add the clarified butter, salt, and caesar dressing. This might seem extra, but trust me, it is a must do. It creates a creamy and luscious bite. Fill the potatoes back up, then top it with your salad ingredients and you are ready to eat!

For the Potatoes
4 – 5 large Russet Potatoes
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons Kosher salt, divided, plus more for seasoning
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon clarified butter
1 cup chopped romaine
½ cup sliced cherry tomatoes
¼ cup thinly sliced radishes
For the Whole30 Caesar Dressing
1 large egg
¾ cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, peeled and pressed
2 anchovy fillets
½ teaspoon compliant Dijon mustard
¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
For the Crispy Chicken
9 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
2 tablespoons dried oregano
5 cloves of garlic, crushed
Zest and juice of one lemon
2 teaspoons Kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 – 5 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Make the Russet Potatoes
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Add olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt and pepper to rub all over the potatoes. Using a fork, poke the potatoes several time throughout the potatoes.
Place the potatoes in a parchment-lined baking dish and bake in the oven for about 60 – 80 minutes or until tender.
Remove from the oven and set aside to slightly cool.
Make the Whole30 Caesar Dressing
Crack egg into a Mason Jar. Using a hand blender, slowly add oil as you blend, pausing to let incorporate. Continue to slowly add more oil. Then add the garlic and the anchovies and blend. Add the Dijon, lemon juice, salt and pepper and blend well. Cover and place in the refrigerator.
Make the Crispy Chicken
In a small bowl, add 5 tablespoons of olive oil, oregano, garlic, lemon zest and juice, salt and pepper. Whisk to combine.
In a large bowl, add the chicken breasts. Pour the marinated over the chicken and toss to coat the chicken completely. Cover and place in the fridge to marinate for at least 30 minutes or overnight. Either way delicious!
In a large skillet, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and heat over medium high heat. Once the pan is hot, working in batches, add half of the chicken breasts and cook about 4 minutes per side, until browned. Place a lid over the pan and reduce the heat to medium low. Continue to cook until cooked through, about 4 minutes. (A total of 12 minutes.) Remove chicken breasts and wipe out the pan using a cloth or paper towel. Repeat this step for the rest of the chicken breasts. Remove and cut into small chunks.
Assemble the stuffed potatoes
Using a knife, carefully cut a lengthwise slit in each potato. Use a spoon to gently scoop out the potato filling and place it in a large bowl. Add the clarified butter, ¾ teaspoon of salt and about 2 tablespoons of the Caesar dressing. Using a fork, toss and gently mash to fully combine. Fill the potato ‘shells’ with ½ cup each of the potato mixture.
In the same bowl, add the romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, radishes and chicken. Drizzle about 2 – 3 tablespoons of the dressing and toss to combine. Gently top each potato with the Caesar salad topping. Season to taste with more salt and serve with more dressing on the side. Enjoy!

Wow! This recipe was AMAZING! The perfect balance of hearty and light. My husband is not a fan of baked potatoes, but he gave this recipe 2 thumbs up!
I did modify this recipe – I used a Whole 30 approved Caesar Dressing and I used a vegan butter (since I am not doing the Whole 30 and I don’t eat dairy).
Will definitely add this to our recipe rotation!
A little labor involved but so very delicious. The dressing was AMAZING. I didn’t add the anchovie because I’m not a fan and it was still so good!
As always, an amazing recipe by you! Your posts + your cookbook bring me and my husband happiness whether we are on Whole30 or not! x Thank you!
Delicious, am making it for the third time 🙂
Delicious!! My youngest child helped me make this meal by prepping and baking the potatoes. ?
I made this for dinner last night and my husband and I loved it. The only change I made was to add more anchovy to the dressing because we love all the flavor they pack.
The chicken was excellent. Another of your recipes I will add to my repertoire.
First time trying one of your recipes and it did not disappoint!! Thank you!!
