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.
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 Medoc in France.
- 2 pounds boiling potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch pieces
- 4 tablespoons cooking oil, divided
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1/2 pound mushrooms, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- 1 1/3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 4), cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- 1 teaspoon salt, divided
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Put the potatoes in a medium saucepan of salted water. Bring to a boil and simmer until almost tender, about 5 minutes. Drain.
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. Saute until the chicken is almost cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the mixture from the pan.
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.
This is the perfect place to use leftover cooked turkey or chicken. Just toss it in at the end with the mushrooms.
