#5 :: Savory Chicken Hash

First I saw it on Barefoot Contessa. She was having a black & white dinner party and serving chicken hash just like Capote did at his black & white ball. Then on Big Daddy's House I saw chicken hash again. After seeing it twice and both ways looking very tasty, I chose one of them and added it to the week's menu.

This Chicken Hash was a lot spicer than I ever imagined Chicken Hash could be. But, to my surprise, it wasn't the"mouth-on-fire" hot that I don't like. I really liked this a lot. Very spicy and savory.


  • 4 Yukon potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano leaves
  • 1 (3-pound) store-bought *rotisserie chicken, meat removed and diced
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced

* We used a 3 lb. bag of frozen chicken leg quarters instead of a rotisserie chicken. We cooked them at 375 in the oven for 1 hour and 10 minutes before shredding it for the hash.


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Bring a large pot or water to a boil over medium heat. Add the potatoes and cook until tender, about 12 to 14 minutes. Drain and set aside.

In a large oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat, add the butter. Add the onions, bell peppers and garlic and saute for a few minutes. Add the cayenne, salt, pepper, smoked paprika and oregano. Stir in the chicken and cook for 4 to 5 minutes until chicken is warmed through. Season with more salt and pepper, if needed. Stir in the chicken stock to add some moisture, along with the parsley and lemon juice. Allow to simmer for a few minutes. Add the cooked potatoes and put into the oven until the potatoes are crunchy, about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and transfer to a serving bowl.

Makes 4-6 servings.
