  • Serves: 6-8


  • 2½ to 4 pound chicken
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 to 4 cups diced, cooked potatoes (fresh or leftover)
  • 1 can carrots, drained
  • 3 cups of gravy (or enough to make hash moist)


  1. Boil chicken until meat falls off of bones easily. De-bone chicken and chop meat.
  2. Brown chicken and onion in non-stick pan with cooking spray.
  3. Add potatoes, carrots, and gravy.
  4. Heat thoroughly, stirring often to avoid sticking or burning. Season to taste.


  • Pre-cooked ingredients can be used from any roast or other leftovers. Canned beef or chicken can be used. This is a quick and easy way to use up leftovers.
