My mother used to make a turkey hash after Thanksgiving with the leftovers.  It is nice and I love it, but it’s a very simple recipe that suited my dad who wasn’t much of a veggie eater. This recipe is my variation of it using chicken and adding lots of vegetables.  It is hearty and full of flavor and I often have it as a Whole30 breakfast when I am tired of eggs in the morning.

Whole30 breakfast recipes normally have one thing in common: they are big on protein and very filling. See my left over Whole30 turkey hash for another filling idea.

Making this Breakfast Chicken Hash is a Cinch!

The recipe could not be easier to make.  All that is needed for prep is to boil some potatoes and mash them and then cook everything in olive oil in a non stick skillet. If you have some left over mashed potatoes, even better.  Then, it will come together in a flash.

The flavors are fresh and tasty.  You can use veggies in your fridge, but today, I chose red and yellow sweet peppers and fresh white mushrooms. Shallots gave me the onion flavor and my potatoes were mashed with the garlic right in them. Fresh chives added a nice garnish and bit of extra onion flavor.Serving of chicken hash

If you want something even a bit more hearty, try adding a poached egg on top and a half of a grapefruit. This gives you a bit more protein and is perfect for brunch.

SUBSTITUTION TIP: What to make this recipe fit the Paleo diet?  Sub out the white potatoes for sweet potatoes and you are good to go!

Breakfast Chicken Hash with Peppers and Mushrooms - Whole 30 Compliant

Chicken hash and avocado

Time to think outside the box for breakfast with this chicken and avocado breakfast hash recipe.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 2 large potatoes, diced
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1/4 cup of chicken broth (check labels for Whole 30 compliancy)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 white mushrooms, halved and sliced
  • 4 baby peppers, red and yellow diced
  • 3 shallots, chopped
  • 8 ounces of cooked chicken diced
  • sea salt and cracked black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 avocado sliced
  • Optional: soft cooked egg
  • Fresh chives to Garnish


  1. Cook the potatoes and garlic in boiling salted water until tender. Mash with the chicken broth and set aside.
  2. In a non stick skillet, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the peppers, shallots and mushrooms and cook until they are tender. Stir in the cooked chicken and stir to combine.
  3. Add the mashed potatoes and cook, stirring often. I like to let it sit a bit and then use a spatula to turn it so that the potatoes brown slightly.
  4. Serve immediately with sliced avocado garnished with fresh chives.
  5. For a heartier breakfast or brunch, add a soft boiled egg on top and some fresh fruit.
