Recipe by Always Cooking Up Something
"A savory combination of chicken, sweet potato, and spinach is seasoned with sage, sweetened with pear, given a splash of whiskey for a kick, and topped with toasted hazelnuts. It makes a lovely fall supper!"

olive oil, or as needed
skinless, boneless chicken breast half, cut into cubes
sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
minced fresh sage
pear - peeled, cored, and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
chopped toasted hazelnuts
salt and ground black pepper to taste
Really nice hash style recipe. Only thing I added was some spicy seasoning at the end. Do toast the hazlenuts.. there is a huge difference in thair flavor. Taste some untoasted and then toast some up... so much better toasted
Made this tonight on a whim to use some sweet potatoes I had. I used some drumsticks instead just because I had them and it was great.
It was delicious! I would however make a few adjustments next time. I loved the pears and would add another. I would also double the spinach, since it cooks down so much.
Other than that - fab!
I changed a few things... use apples instead of pears as that was all I had, used Jack Daniels instead of Irish Whiskey, walnuts instead of hazelnuts and used chicken boullion instead of just water. I also tripled the whiskey amount, as my husband and I both love the taste of whiskey and the dish was not overpoweringly whiskey tasting. It was perfect! Absolutely will make again, especially in the fall.
I couldn't find toasted hazelnuts :(. So we had nothing
This was great with some sophistication for date night.
Good flavors, but I felt like it was missing some depth. I'll add more whiskey next time and maybe chicken stock instead of water. Wait on adding the pears until just before serving or they start to break down.
I hate when people rate recipes after they've altered it, but I'm sure the original is just as good, if not better, than the version I made. Based on what I had on hand, I used granny smith apples instead of pears, omitted the whiskey, and used toasted almonds instead of hazelnuts. It was delicious! Next time I will make it as written to see which version is better, but I'll leave the chicken out because I don't think it adds anything.
I doubled the recipe and used leftover cooked chicken. I even made sure to buy hazelnuts for this and toasted them which was very easy to do. This recipe was delicious and a good way of getting a lot of healthy items into my hubbys diet in one dish. Spinach cooked down so much that even more could be added without overpowering the taste of this lovely hash.
