Whole30 BBQ Chicken Hash

This fast eggless Whole30 & Paleo BBQ Chicken Hash is a nice break from the traditional egg-based breakfast fare. But, it still is a heavy hitter with getting in your nutrients to start the morning, with chicken for protein and several cups of veggies for awesome micronutrients. Keep in mind hashes are not a science – meaning, if you are a little short on something (say carrots), you can leave it out without it ruining the dish. I use Whole30 compliant Cascadian Farm frozen sweet potato chunks (only ingredient = sweet potatoes!) to make this dish come together in 25 minutes. But, if you can’t find compliant frozen potatoes without added sugar (curse you dextrose!), then you can always boil some until just tender and toss those in for this dish instead.
