In honor of 4/20 tomorrow1…you must be exhausted after the third round of morning sex.  I doubt you could bang a forth time if you wanted to.  You are running on an empty tank.  Time to fill you up with super unleaded so your premium sex machine can run all afternoon and into the night.  VROOM VROOOOOOOOM!  Bring on some chicken hash.  This has protein, carbohydrates and enough nutrients to keep you banging like a bunny into next week.  The Nobel Prize winning astrophysicists COOK TO BANG keep on staff, i.e. chained up in my basement and fed leftovers, have been working around the clock to bring you this streamlined breakfast.  Naturally, I am taking credit for their revolutionary findings.  But don’t you think those guys have enough accolades and prize money already?  I’m glad you see it my way.  More hash?

Step 3
Heat up the remaining olive oil on medium-high heat and sauté the onions until they become translucent (approx 2 minutes).  Do the same with the yellow peppers (approx 2 minutes) and follow it up with the cilantro (approx 1 minute).  Now it’s time to bring the potatoes and chicken out retirement by adding them to the mixture.  Season with more salt and pepper and press down on the mixture with a spatula to create a pancake.  Allow it to brown on medium heat as you move on to Step 4.

Step 4
Bring a shallow pan of water to a boil.  Crack an egg one at a time and poach until the egg whites harden, but the yolk is still gooey.  Serve up the chicken hash and crown each plate with a poached egg.
