Wash produce before use


Cook the chicken

In a medium sauce pot, add the chicken and enough lightly salted water to cover by 2 inches, making sure the pieces are separated, and bring to a boil. Cook over high heat until opaque and cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Using a slotted spoon or tongs, transfer the chicken to a plate to cool, then using a fork, shred the chicken. Keep the water boiling for the eggs. While the chicken is cooking, prepare the vegetables.


Prep and cook the vegetables

  • Scrub or peel the sweet potato. Cut the potato into ¼-inch pieces.
  • Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; cut the pepper into ¼-inch pieces. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the sweet potato, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and starting to soften, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the bell pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are just tender, 5 to 7 minutes. While the potato and pepper are cooking, prepare the eggs. 


Cook the eggs

Fill a small bowl with ice water. Carefully lower the eggs into the boiling water used for the chicken and cook for exactly 5 minutes for runny yolks (for firmer yolks, cook 1 to 4 minutes longer). Transfer the eggs to the ice water to cool. Carefully peel the eggs. While the eggs are cooking and cooling, finish the hash.


Prep the remaining ingredients; finish the hash

  • Thinly slice the garlic. 
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions, keeping the white and green parts separate. Set aside the green parts for garnish. 
  • Cut the eggs in half lengthwise; set aside for serving.

To the pan with the sweet potato and bell pepper, add the shredded chicken, garlic, thyme, and white parts of the scallions. If the mixture seems dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is heated through, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the balsamic vinegar, and season to taste with salt and pepper. 


Transfer the hash to individual bowls and top with the eggs. Garnish with the green parts of the scallions and serve.
