Summer Vegetable and Chicken Hash

  • Rating ****

Serves 6

Vegetables seldom make an appearance at breakfast time. But sweet tomatoes and fresh corn transform a standard brunch dish into a nutritional powerhouse. There's no need to peel the potatoes. Keeping the skins on is easier and more beneficial: They're loaded with vitamin B6, potassium and iron.


  • 1 boneless skinless chicken breast half (8 ounces), cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 12 ounces small red potatoes, boiled, halved or quartered
  • 2 cups fresh corn kernels (from 2 ears)
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced (1/4 cup)
  • 1/2 jalapeño chili, stem, ribs and seeds removed, minced (1 tablespoon)
  • 1 cup yellow or red cherry tomatoes (4 ounces), halved
  • 1/2 cup homemade or store-bought low-sodium chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh marjoram (roughly chopped if large)


Heat a 12-inch nonstick skillet over high heat. Add the chicken. Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 2 minutes; transfer to a bowl.

Add 2 teaspoons oil and the potatoes to skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 4 minutes; transfer to a small bowl.

Add the remaining teaspoon oil, the corn, 2 tablespoons scallion and the jalapeño to the skillet, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the corn turns dark brown in spots, about 2 minutes (some kernels may pop). Add the tomatoes, and cook until skins just begin to soften, about 1 minute. Add the stock, salt, pepper and reserved chicken; bring to a boil. Fold in the reserved potatoes, and sprinkle with marjoram and the remaining 2 tablespoons scallion.
