I didn’t know what I really felt like eating tonight. With about a half of a roasted chicken in the refrigerator, I knew I didn’t want it just plain. I started cooking some onions, garlic, red peppers and kale and BAM! the light turned on–I could make a chicken hash! Here’s what I did:
January Chicken Hash
1 medium onion diced
1/2 red pepper diced
1 bunch of “Tuscan” kale, chopped
3 cloves garlic chopped
2 medium Yukon Gold potatoes
3-4 cups cubed cooked chicken
about 1/4 cup olive oil
Salt and Pepper
Saute the onions, kale, pepper and garlic in about 2 tablespoons of oil. When it started to get a little color, I turned it off and set it aside. Put the potatoes in the microwave for about 5 minutes–until just cooked. Cool a bit and chop into small cubes, about the same size as the chicken.
Heat remaining oil in a big skillet. Add the potato cubes, salt and pepper and brown them a little. Add the chicken and the vegetables. Stir it all up until heated through.
YUM! This recipe lends itself to endless improvisation so if you make it you can do your own thing. My thing came out great!

  1. I’ve never had chicken hash before – this looks delicious. Far better than the sandwiches I made with the leftover chicken.
