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.
