Hen House Hash

It’s been one of those weeks where your pantry is pretty bare and you still have a few days before you can go grocery shopping. So… you get creative and see what meals you can come up with. Well, luckily this one is pretty good! I could serve it to you without you even suspecting that I was low on ingredients when I concocted it.  Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner! 
(10 points to whoever can figure out why exactly I named this Hen House Hash – Post your thoughts below, if you have any ideas).


1 lb frozen hash browns 
2 TBS oil
4 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 TBS butter
2 chicken breasts
1 tomato
1/4 cup onion
3 TBS taco seasoning
cheddar cheese


Fry the hash browns in the oil, until golden brown. Salt to taste. Divide the hash browns between 2 plates. 
Whisk eggs, milk, salt, pepper and garlic powder together. Melt 1 TBS of butter in a frying pan, over medium high heat. Pour half the egg mixture in the frying pan and cook until the bottom is lightly browned. Fold in half to create an omelet. Allow the eggs to finish cooking and place on top of the hash browns. Repeat with the second half of the egg mixture. 
Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top of each omelet. 
Cut onions, tomatoes and chicken pieces into thin strips. In a skillet, fry the onions and chicken pieces together until the chicken is no longer pink. Add the tomato pieces and taco seasoning. Cook until the tomatoes have softened slightly, and then place this mixture on top of the hash browns and omelet.
