By popular demand, the first recipe I’m giving you is tonight’s experiment for a sweet potato apple hash with chicken. I modified this recipe (gotta give credit, you know), which I saw re-blogged on several different sites.
Reasons for the modifications:
- I keep kosher. Chicken sausage isn’t exactly my thing so I used plain ground chicken instead.
- I don’t have spinach.
- I didn’t feel like using 2 pots.
Here’s what I did:
- Scrub one large sweet potato and rinse one apple.
- Peel the sweet potato and the apple.
- Dice the sweet potato (slice the long way from pole to pole; turn the slices and cut the short way; cut into cubes).
- Dice the apple.
- Dice half an onion (I used a vidalia onion).
- Melt 2 tablespoons of coconut oil over low heat.
- When the oil has turned into a liquid, add the sweet potato, apple, and onion.
- Sprinkle salt, black pepper, and cinnamon to taste (original recipes calls for 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon). Stir.
- Add 1 lb ground chicken.
- Stir on and off breaking up the chicken into smaller pieces.
- This will be finished cooking before you know it.
I ended up burning the sweet potatoes and chicken a little bit because I didn’t think the sweet potatoes were finished. I’m used to baking them, which takes at least an hour.
The apples make the dish and cinnamon and chicken go surprisingly well together. I’ll be having this for breakfast tomorrow with 2 scrambled eggs on top.
Please leave your thoughts/comments in the comments section. I’d love to hear what you think of the recipe and if you tried it.
