Sweet Potato Chicken Hash
- 1 slice thick cut bacon, diced
- 1/4 small yellow onion, diced
- 1/4 cup small diced sweet potato
- 1/4 red bell pepper, top & seeds removed, diced
- Roughly 1/3 cup or 4-6 oz cooked pulled chicken
- Handful spinach or kale, rough chopped
- sprinkle of asiago cheese
- salt & pepper
In a medium skillet over medium heat, cook your bacon until it is beginning to crisp up. Add in your onions and let cook with the bacon until translucent and fragrant. Then add in the sweet potatoes and peppers. You may need to add in a little olive oil to get a nice brown crisp on the peppers and potatoes. Once your potatoes are fork tender, add in your chicken and spinach. Season with salt and pepper. Let everything cook on medium-low while you get your egg ready.
Heat up a smaller pan and spray with some cooking spray or add a teaspoon olive oil. Get the pan nice and hot, then crack in your egg. Cook on one side until almost completely cooked through. Flip once, very briefly to get a bit of a cook on the other side before taking out of the pan. The goal is cooked white, and ooey gooey yolk!.
Plate your hash, sprinkle with asiago, and top with that egg and a sprinkle of black pepper!
