Chicken, Bacon, & Sweet Potato Hash

This is a relatively simple recipe with ingredients that you may already have on hand.  It doesn’t dirty a large amount of dishes, either; just slice n dice, and throw it all into a skillet.  When I first read the recipe I was a little skeptical on how much “taste” it would actually have, worrying that it might be bland.  I was pleasantly surprised when I ate it, though, and wouldn’t hesitate to make it again.  It tasted great the next day for lunch leftovers as well.  If you are not a fan of greens, I would still put them in, when they are cooked I don’t think you can taste them.


The original recipe can be found at:


-5-6 slices of bacon

-1 onion, diced

-1 large sweet potato, grated

-chicken breast ( I didn’t measure the amount, you know how much you need based upon your family size ;))

-3-4 handfuls baby spinach

-Garlic, salt, pepper, crushed peppers to taste


-Cook bacon until it reaches desired crispness.  Place it on a plate to drain the grease, set aside.  In the same skillet that you cooked the bacon, cook the chicken and onions until chicken reaches desired temperature and onions are translucent.  Add in shredded sweet potato, and finally add in the greens.  Cook until the sweet potatoes are soft and the greens are wilted.  Add seasoning.  Crumble cooked bacon and serve over the top.

This recipe serves as a reminder that “good” food doesn’t have to be anything fancy or overly complicated, so come up with a different excuse not to try it ;).
