Texas chicken hash

  • 4 boneless chicken breasts
  • Garlic powder
  • Chilli powder
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 potatoes, diced
  • 110g butter, divided
  • 6 green peppers, chopped
  • 4 onions, chopped
  • Oil, for deep-frying, plus more for frying eggs
  • 16 corn tortillas
  • 140g plain flour
  • 750ml milk
  • 2 red peppers, chopped
  • 1 habenero pepper, chopped
  • 400g grated cheese, any cheese of choice
  • 8 eggs
  • Tony Chachere's seasoning, to taste
  • Avocado slices, for garnish
  • Tomato slices, for garnish
1) Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4. Season the chicken with garlic powder, chilli powder and black pepper. Put into a roasting pan and cover with foil. Roast the chicken until cooked through, about 45 minutes. Remove to a cutting board and chop.

2) Add the potatoes and 55g of the butter to a medium frying pan and saute until tender. Remove from the pan and set aside. Add the green peppers and onions to the pan and saute until soft but not mushy.

3) Heat a deep-fryer with oil and fry the tortillas until crispy. Transfer the tortillas to kitchen paper to drain.

4) In a large saucepan add the flour and the remaining 55g of butter and cook the flour for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Slowly add the milk and cook until slightly thick.

5) Add the chopped red peppers and the habenero. Stir in the grated cheese and cook until melted.

6) Coat a large frying pan with oil and add the eggs. Cook the eggs sunny side up.

7) In a large pan over a low heat, add the potatoes, pepper mixture and the chopped chicken. Season with Tony Chachere's seasoning, to taste. Stir the potato mixture until heated through.

8) Put 4 tortillas on a plate in stacks of 2. Spoon some of the chicken mixture on top of both stacks. Top each stack with 1 sunny side up egg and drizzle with the cheese sauce, to taste.

9) Repeat the process with the remaining tortillas, eggs and cheese. Garnish each plate with avocado and tomato slices. Serve immediately.
