Foodie Friday | Smoked Chicken Hash

Waking on the weekends inspires me to do one of two things… head downstairs in my fuzzy slippers and whip up a culinary morning masterpiece or get dressed in my cozy hoody and head out early enough to stand in line for a breakfast feast. I have been told that a MUST TRY is Executive Chef Reese Hay’s Sunday Brunch at the Andaz San Diego. Until I make it down there for a review, here is a recipe they shared with us. ENJOY!

Smoked Chicken Hash

by Andaz San Diego’s Executive Chef Reese Hay

Serves: 4

12 oz. smoked chicken
4 oz. roasted green chilies
4 oz. grilled green onions
4 oz. minced yellow onion
12 oz. red potatoes
4 teaspoon of minced garlic
4 teaspoon of roasted garlic
8 poached eggs

On a flat top stove in 1 tablespoon of clarified butter, combine all ingredients except potatoes and eggs. Cook on medium heat until mixture is hot and begins to form a crispy crust. Bake the potatoes, and once cooled, cut into medium pieces, then add potatoes to the pan. Add whole butter and continue cooking on medium heat until steaming and crispy. Place in a large cereal bowl.

Serve two eggs poached on top (Below: Chef Reese’s method for poaching). Drizzle 2 ounces of hollandaise sauce (Below: Chef Reese’s recipe for hollandaise sauce) over the top and garnish with chopped green onions.

Chef Reese Hay’s poached eggs:

Put ¼ cup white vinegar and 4 cups water in a medium pot and bring to just below a boil, let it sit at that temperature. Crack the egg and pour it into the water. Use a slotted spoon to ease the egg off the bottom of the pot after a minute or two to prevent sticking. Let it sit in the hot water for 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on top of the hash while hot.

Chef Reese Hay’s hollandaise sauce:

2 lemons
1 tsp. chipotle
1 tsp. chopped cilantro
2 egg yolks
4 oz. clarified butter.

Over medium heat in a double boiler, cook the egg yolk and lemon juice and mix with a whisk. Stir for approximately 2 minutes over the heat. Pour into a blender and pulse on high. Drizzle in the clarified butter on slow speed as it is incorporated. It will be smooth and velvety in consistency. Fold in the chopped cilantro by hand.
