Sweet Potato & Chicken Cakes/Hash!

I really fancied something different for brunch last weekend and so, as we are also in the states and they do 'breakfast hash' (which can be pretty unhealthy), I created my own healthy version of potato cakes which is delicious for brunch! It's great too if you want to swerve bread but are craving carbs. I didn't add enough sweet potato so it turned into a hash - but I quite enjoyed that!

Prep & Cook time = approx 20 mins (Makes 4 cakes - so for 2 people)

Ingredients:

  • 2 x Chicken Breasts
  • 2 x Whole Egg 
  • 2 x Medium Sweet Potato (or less if you like more 'hashy')
  • 1 x Red Onion
  • 2 x Garlic Cloves

Process:

  • Cut the garlic, onion & chicken into really really small little pieces (this holds better in the cake...as I found out)
  • Start to fry in a little coconut oil
  • Whilst that's cooking, peel the sweet potato, cube and microwave until mushy
  • In a large bowl, mix the mashed up sweet potato with the whole eggs (keep stirring!)
  • Then add the garlic, onion & chicken once cooked
  • Shape mixture into cakes with a spoon (careful not to burn yourself if you use your hands!)
  • Fry cakes in coconut oil for a few mins each side
  • Serve with raw spinach and some 0% Fage yogurt! 

I'm pretty sure this is isn't revolutionary (!)...and there's loads of things you could do to it such as add spices and maybe bacon etc. BUT this one is cheap, easy and very healthy - only 5 whole food ingredients! Let me know if you make it any other way!
