Chicken Mushroom Potato Hash

Submitted by: LCOSBYJONES

Introduction

Good for either breakfast, brunch, or dinner. We serve it with a (lightly) fried egg on top, but you can omit it if you choose. Good for either breakfast, brunch, or dinner. We serve it with a (lightly) fried egg on top, but you can omit it if you choose.
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    2 lbs. potatoes, diced
    1/2 lb. mushrooms, quartered
    1 onion, chopped
    5 cloves garlic
    1 1/3 lbs. chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
    4 Tbsp. olive oil
    1 tsp. salt
    1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
    1/2 tsp. thyme
    1/4 c. sour cream
    fresh parsley

Directions

1. In a large nonstick frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over moderate heat. Add the onion, garlic, and mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are browned, about 6 minutes. Add the chicken, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, the pepper, and the thyme. Sauté until the chicken is almost cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the mixture from the pan.
3. Wipe out the frying pan and then heat the remaining 3 tablespoons oil over moderately high heat. Add the diced potatoes and let cook, without stirring, for 6 minutes. Add the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, stir the potatoes, and cook until well browned and fully cooked through. Stir in the chicken and mushrooms, the sour cream, and the parsley. Cook until just heated through, 1 to 2 minutes longer.
Tip: This is the perfect place to use leftover cooked turkey or chicken. Just toss it in at the end with the mushrooms.

    My wife and I both loved this recipe. It was a bit slow to make, but the service size was generous, and as a bonus, it is very cheap to make! - 4/14/09

    Easy to make, but there was no flavor. I don't think I'll be making this a second time. - 1/31/09

    This was awesome! I only used 3 tablespoons of oil though. I did add the egg which made it even better and I topped with salsa. This is a definite keeper! Thank You! - 1/18/09

    This was wonderful!! My husband and 2 year old son both loved it. We will be making this again. The only thing that I changed was using season salt, rather than salt. - 2/4/09

    Loved this one! I used non-stick spray in frying pan and only used 1 teaspoon oil. Also added some zucinni and hand full of fresh spinach. This stays on my menu. Thank you so much for the recipe! Maxie - 4/20/09

    It's on my menu planner for this coming Tues! It sounds like the perfect way to use up my leftover grilled chicken breasts...will post comment when I try it!

    We had it for dinner, skipped the egg, but added a salad with a zesty italian dressing (light) & we absolutely loved it! It's a keeper : - 4/19/09

    This was excellent! Anything low fat that has potatoes is bound to be a winner! I will be making this again! It didn't have the visual appeal I had hoped (so said my 5 yr old) but, the taste more than made up for it! - 4/16/09

  • The service size is fairly large, but the seasoning doesn't match up.It's quite bland. If I made it again, I'd cut the potato amount in half, and at least double the salt, pepper, and thyme. The way it is, the garlic and parsley are the only dominant flavors. The garlic is overpowering. Not tasty. - 4/22/13

  • I don't think the nutritional information is correct. 1 1/3 pounds of chicken for four servings delivers a lot more protein than 11 grams - over 30 grams. Makes me wonder about the rest of the information! Sounds good, though, and I have leftover chicken..... - 1/5/11

    Thank you for pointing this out! I originally entered this recipe just for my own reference since we make it at home. Apparently I misread the "unit (yield from 1 lb. read-to-eat)" as 1 lb. and that's where I made an error. It has now been corrected.

    I think I'm going to give this one a try with a couple of changes. Garlic salt instead of plain (and less), red and yellow potatoes (high in potassium), light sour cream (as many have chosen), and a little less oil. Sounds nummy though. - 4/18/09
