Grilled Chicken with Vegetable Hash

Hey Everyone- Its been a fun filled week!!! We opened our new location this week... and with great success!  Thank you to all the new members who have joined us and giving it your all.

So, with that and all of the normal weekly madness.... I forgot I didn't even plan dinners... Crazy! I like to be prepared... Grrrrr!  However, I put together a last minute meal that turned out DELICIOUS!  I highly recommend this tasty dinner.......

                                                Grilled Chicken and Vegetable Hash

Feeds 3
Prep and Cook Time: about 20-30 minutes

Hash Ingredients:
1 small yam
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1 jalapeno
1 1/2 cup chopped broccoli
1 small zucchini
1/4 cup chopped green apple
2 tablespoons Extra Virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
Cayenne pepper to taste
cajun seasoning to taste

Chicken and Marinade:
1 tablespoon Hoisin Sauce
1 tsp low sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon Siracha
2 skinless chicken breast


Step One: In a large skillet, heat 2 olive oil and minced garlic. Add the yams and saute until softened (you should be able to bite into one easily).

Step Two: When the yams are softened (but not quite down), toss in the rest of your veggies. Season the whole dish with cayenne pepper and cajun seasoning to taste. Saute for 3- 5 minutes, until your broccoli is bright green.

Step Three:  For the last couple minutes, toss in your chopped green apples and stir generously.

Notes for the grilled Chicken:

I marinaded my chicken overnight, by accident (or laziness)! I was supposed to cook it for dinner the night before but changed my mind :) So it had sometime to soak up the flavors of the marinade. It was sooooo good! I highly recommend letting it marinade as long as you can.

Place on your grill for about 10 minutes each side (depending on the thickness of the breast)... and Voila!  Tasty and very healthy family dinner....
