Updated: Jan 13, 2022

Using leftovers are a great way to reduce food waste and make a tasty meal at the same time!

Makes approximately 2-3 servings

Preparation time is approximately 5 minutes

Cooking time is approximately 10 minutes


2 tablespoons of olive oil

2 medium potatoes, scrubbed and chopped into 1-2cm cubes

Cooked leftover vegetables (these can include cabbage, peppers, carrots or tinned sweetcorn, and peas)

1 cup / 100g shredded cooked chicken

1 teaspoon of dried mixed herbs

2- 3 large eggs (optional)

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika (optional)

Salt and pepper

How to Make LEFTOVER Chicken HASH

1. Cook the potatoes in hot water for half the time it usually takes, and then drain.

2. In a large heavy pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat.

3. Add the potatoes and a pinch of salt.

4. Fry the potatoes for approximately 5 minutes until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.

5. Add the shredded cooked chicken, mixed herbs, paprika (if using) and leftover vegetables.

6. Continue to cook until potatoes are crispy but tender on the inside, approximately 5 minutes.

7. Remove the hash mixture to a plate and crack two eggs into the pan. There should be enough oil in the pan to cook the eggs, but if your pan is dry, add another drizzle of oil.

8. Fry the eggs as desired and serve immediately.
