  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper

Quick gravy

  • 3 tablespoons butter

Instructions

    For the chicken hash:

    1. Prepare your potatoes and set aside.
    2. Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium heat.
    3. Add the onion and peppers and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
    4. Add the carrots, zucchini, chicken, salt, pepper and paprika. Stir to combine.
    5. Reduce heat to low and let the mixture heat through while you get everything else ready.

    For the gravy:

    1. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat.
    2. Add flour and whisk to combine. Cook for 2 minutes, whisking occasionally.
    3. Add chicken broth slowly and whisk to combine. Add thyme.
    4. Let mixture cook over medium-low heat for 4-5 minutes, until thickened to your desired consistency.
    5. Add the salt and pepper and remove from heat.
    6. Add the Greek yogurt and stir to combine.

    Bring it all together:

    1. Pour the gravy mixture over the chicken hash mixture in the pan. Stir to combine.
    2. Open and fluff the baked potatoes.
    3. Heap the chicken hash and gravy mixture all over the potatoes. They should be overflowing.
