One Pot Spicy Chicken Sweet Potato and Asparagus Hash

Wednesday, March 22, 2017
Hey babes! How happy are you that it's officially spring!? I, for one, am most excited for sunny poolside days, driving with the top down, and easy one pot meals [ y'all know I love to eat! ]. A lot of one pot recipes are more suited for fall/winter, but this spicy chicken sweet potato and asparagus hash is perfect for these slightly warmer temps. It is light yet robust with flavor, and wonderfully filling.

It's been a while since I really dug into creating a recipe. With all of the renovations taking place at the condo, Austin and I have been crazy busy - my kitchen time has been zero. It felt so good to get back in the kitchen and dream up a recipe. This hash is "like mind-blowingly delicious".. or so I'm told ;)

Spicy Chicken Sweet Potato and Asparagus Hash

Prep Time: 10-12 min  |  Cook Time: 35 min  |  Serves: 4-6

This hash is light and robust with flavor. Spicy chicken melds deliciously with the natural sweetness of the potatoes, and the snap of the asparagus adds a wonderfully fresh feel to each bite.


for the hash //
1 bunch of asparagus 
2 large sweet potatoes
1 lbs. of ground turkey
6 spicy chicken sausages - removed from casing 
parmesan cheese - freshly grated

spices & oils //
1 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp. sweet basil
dash of turmeric
1 tsp onion powder onion powder
black pepper + salt to taste 
1 tbsp. butter
olive oil


Preheat oven to 450˚. Dice sweet potatoes into bite size chunks and place on a foil lined baking sheet. Toss with olive oil, black pepper, and sweet basil. Roast for 35 minutes - flip potato chunks half way through.

Snap asparagus into 1 1/2 inch pieces. Set aside.

Grate 1 wedge of parmesan cheese. Reserve 1 cup for flavoring dish, and the rest for garnishing. 

Step 1. Add chicken [ removed from casing ], ground turkey, asparagus pieces, butter, and olive oil into a large pot over medium-high heat. Season with salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, onion powder, and a dash of turmeric. Cook until meat has browned and asparagus is a warm green - about 10 minutes. Add in 1/2 warm water and simmer on low for 2-4 minutes.

Add in 1 cup parmesan cheese. Stir until well incorporated/melted. Keep warm until sweet potato chunks finish roasting. 

Step 2. Remove sweet potato chunks from oven and fold into meat/asparagus mixture. Season with black pepper and salt to taste, and a drizzle of olive oil. Toss till well combined. 

Step 3. Serve hash in a bowl or on a plate. Top with grated parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes.

Enjoy immensely!

This dish did not last long in our house! It is irresistibly spicy, sweet, and savory! This one pot hash delivers on flavor and is so simple to put together. You can cut back on the red pepper flakes if spicy isn't your thing or add more if you're feeling brave ;)
