Ingredients

Chicken

  • 8 slices bacon, cut into ½ inch pieces
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lb boneless chicken breast cutlets

Hash

  • 1 lb sweet potato, diced into ½ inch cubes
  • 1 small sweet onion, diced (2 cups)
  • ½ lb Brussels sprouts, thinly sliced
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp black pepper

Maple Glaze

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Hash

  • Preheat oven to 425°F. In a large bowl, add the diced sweet potatoes, onion, sliced Brussels sprouts and garlic. Toss with 3 tbsp olive oil, kosher salt, paprika and black pepper until everything is combined.
  • Spread evenly on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Roast in oven for 25 minutes, tossing halfway through.

Chicken

  • Heat large skillet over medium heat and cook bacon until crisp. Remove and place on paper towel-lined plate. Reserve 2 tbsp bacon fat in skillet.
  • Heat same large skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper and dredge in flour. Cook chicken for 3-4 minutes on both sides, or until golden-brown. Transfer to a plate and cover.

Maple Glaze

  • Heat olive oil in small skillet over medium-high heat. Saute garlic for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add balsamic vinegar, maple syrup and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to boil and then reduce to medium heat and let simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes. 
  • Once hash and chicken are done, add hash to bowl and place chicken on top. Drizzle maple glaze over chicken and sprinkle with bacon.

Notes

  • Use a food processor with a slicing attachment to shave the Brussels sprouts quickly and safely.
  • Be consistent when cutting the sweet potatoes and onion so they will cook evenly.
  • You know the chicken is cooked when it reaches 165°F with an instant-read thermometer or if you cut into the chicken and the juices run clear and there is no pink. Honestly, I always just cut the chicken to see when it is done. If it isn’t just cook slightly longer.
  • Leftover  chicken will store well in the fridge for 2-3 days in an air-tight container or be frozen for 3 months.
