Potato, Mushroom, and Chicken Hash

  • SERVINGS: 4
  • FAST

Always a brunch favorite, hash is a hearty dinner option as well. You might top each serving with a fried egg. The yolk makes a silky sauce for every bite it touches.

  1. 2 pounds boiling potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  2. 4 tablespoons cooking oil
  3. 1 onion, chopped
  4. 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  5. 1/2 pound mushrooms, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  6. 1 1/3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 4), cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  7. 1 teaspoon salt
  8. 1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
  9. 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  10. 1/4 cup heavy cream
  11. 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  1. Put the potatoes in a medium saucepan of salted water. Bring to a boil and simmer until almost tender, about 5 minutes. Drain.
  2. 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 drained potatoes and let cook, without stirring, for 6 minutes. Add the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, stir the potatoes, and cook until well browned, about 4 minutes longer. Stir in the chicken and mushrooms, the cream, and the parsley. Cook until just heated through, 1 to 2 minutes longer.
Notes Test-Kitchen Tip This is the perfect place to use leftover cooked turkey or chicken. Just toss it in at the end with the mushrooms.

Suggested Pairing

This satisfying dish will go with different drinks depending on the time of day. For brunch, try a mimosa (orange juice and sparkling wine). For dinner, serve a light, young Bordeaux from the Médoc in France.
