Sweet Potato Chicken Hash with Eggs

I love the combination of sweet potatoes with chicken and eggs in this savory dish. The sweet potatoes are sauteed with onions and thyme that make the whole dish feel like fall. It’s delicious, and a great way to use up any leftovers from a rotisserie chicken. Top it with a few dashes of Sriracha or Franks hot sauce and it’s over-the-top good!

It’s also the perfect one pot dish, start to finish it’s made all in one skillet. So that means there’s also less dishes to wash – a win in my book!


  • Leftover turkey would also be great in place of chicken.
  • For time-saving convenience, you can use pre-cut sweet potatoes.
  • Switch up the herbs by using Herbs de Provence, sage or rosemary in place of thyme.

  1. This is such a flavorful and simple recipe to make. It turned out perfect. My husband even had seconds. I hid the last serving so I could bring for my lunch today!!

    I made this for guests this weekend.  It was delicious, and especially nice since there is no cheese in it (and I had a lactose-intolerant guest).  However, I found the hash became very dry by the time the eggs were cooked.  It was perfect up to that point.  Next time, I would do the eggs separately and then just put them on top of the hash for service.  

  3. This looks so good! Just an FYI, when I print your recipes, the ingredient amounts change dramatically!

  4. I halved the recipe to make for myself. I also topped the whole thing off at the end with a little shredded mozzarella because this girl loves cheese! Can’t wait to add this delicious dish into my rotation. Loved it!

  5. We have now made this several times, with and without meat. We replace the white onions with red for some added punch, but this is a real favorite. We make lots of the hash on the weekend, and then warm it up over the week with an egg, so this is also a good meal planning option…

  6. Delicious! I love that there are limited ingredients, and it’s quick and easy. I used white sweet potatoes instead of yams and it was perfect!

    This was sooo good.  I made the pan of everything and then just used 1/4 every morning with the added egg for breakfast. 

  8. This was so good! I was looking for a recipe with chicken and eggs and happened to have a sweet potato. Came out perfect for Sunday brunch, Filling too Thanks for another great recipe keeper

  9. Made this today delish!! Walmart sells cubed sweet potato made it so easy. Made two servings instead of 4 still manageable w points. Frank’s hot sauce tops it off!

    I have a go to java rub that I substituted for the herbs and spices and it is phenomenal without any calorie change! I highly suggest giving that a try, it really makes this the best cozy breakfast dish!

  11. This is one of my favorite recipes on the site! The flavors come together so well and anytime anyone comes over for brunch this is on the top of my to-cook list. Thanks so much 🙂

  12. I made this tonight for dinner ad it was amazing! The seasoning was so complimentary with the sweet potatoes and chicken! This is going o become a regular dish in my house. Thank you!

  13. wow! fantastic!! I used left over ground pork (from skinnytaste egg roll bowls) instead of chicken. Even my hubby who can take or leave sweet potatoes said this dish was a keeper! I made entire recipe for just the two of us for brunch and I couldn’t finish my half. However, I can see why others commented that 1 serving isn’t enough for a meal, but would be great addition to other brunch items if feeding more than 2.
    Love your recipes, Gina!
