Greek Chicken Hash

I hate when bloggers who’ve neglected their websites do their “comeback” post and write the words “sorry”. I’ve completely ignored this website for about 5 weeks and I’m not sorry at all.

Lots of stuff happened in that 5 weeks. The number one biggest, life changing occurrence is that we’re jobless. We’ve left our CrossFit gym (long story) and are actively looking for a space, because we’re STARTING OUR OWN CROSSFIT GYM. Extreme emphasis requires caps lock. I would add glitter, blinking lights and unicorns if I could.

So I’ve been obsessively looking for a warehouse space, day-in and day-out. CrossFit really does demand an odd set of “must-haves” in order to function; safe, somewhere to sprint/run, high ceilings, neighbors that don’t mind, ability to drop heavy things, etc. I haven’t worked out much nor have I had the motivation to cook. I received an email from a friend-via-blog asking what we were up to and it was the kick in the pants I needed to resuscitate my kitchen skillz (and I was getting tired of Chipotle). Thanks Liz!


And Brandon has turned his attention to the last space in our house that needs to be re-done, our master bathroom. He’s full steam ahead on the gut and re-build.


  • fat of choice
  • 1 pound waxy potatoes or 1 head cauliflower
  • 1½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed of fat & cut into bite-size pieces
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 pepperoncini peppers, minced (add more or less depending on spicy tolerance)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • zest & juice of 1 lemon
  • ¼ cup chicken stock
  • salt & pepper


Preheat your oven to 400ºF. While you’re waiting for the oven, peel and dice your potatoes or cut your cauliflower into florets. Place them on a baking sheet. Toss in the fat of your choice (olive oil, perhaps) and douse in salt and pepper. Roast until crispy and soft, about 30-45 minutes. The smaller you cut the veg, the less time this will take.

While the veg is roasting…

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add in a tablespoon of your fat and saute the chicken until cooked through. Add in the garlic, pepperonici and oregano. Continue to saute until the garlic seems cooked through, about 2 minutes. Add in the lemon juice + zest and the chicken stock. Stir everything around and make sure you get up all the bits that might be stuck to the pan. Let reduce until most of the liquid has evaporated. Season with salt and pepper. Serve over roasted veg.

  1. Glad you are back. This web site has given me a lot of inspiration. Good luck on the search for space!

  2. Awwww, I teared up when I saw this recipe posted! I’m so glad you’re back. We definitely are chomping at the bit for each recipe. Missed your posts/recipes and of course, wish you and Brandon ALL THE BEST in opening your own box. Only wish I were closer so I could workout there! If you’re ever in Chicago, please let us know and we’d love to do a culinary tour with you and Brandon. Chef Hubby would be ecstatic! I’ll be making this tasty dish this week. YUM!

  3. Glad you’re back. Now I know what I’m cooking for dinner tonight. 🙂

  4. Hey M & B, this looks great, looking forward to making it and glad to see you back on here. Also want to say y’all are missed at the gym, and I’m looking forward to seeing what’s next for you in that arena too! And, of course, you both killed it on 13.1, huge surprise.

  5. Wow, this look soo yummy! I made your “orange chicken” recipe the other night and it was AMAZING! Seriously one of the best dishes I have ever made, paleo or not! I can’t wait to try this one 🙂

  7. I am new to your blog and love it so far..I just wanta say good luck finding the perfect place.. You and your husband are gonna make great owners. This recipe looks amazing.

  8. Hi! I’m a pretty recent reader, but I loe your blog and your approach to the Paleo lifestyle. I made this tonight except with basil and jalepeno and also added asparagus. Had to use what I had on hand! Good luck with the new box, I’m sure it will all come together. Thanks for the food inspiration.

  9. open closer to lancaster 😉

  10. Welcome back! I missed your e-mails in my inbox!! Now I look forward to more recipes! 🙂

  11. Been wondering. Good for you moving on to bigger and better things. I love your recipes and they motivate me to keep on track. There are other websites, but the honest humor you convey makes yours have that special edge. All the best with your new endeavour.

  12. welcome back… good luck with the new job/ thingy…

    i love your recipes.

  13. I’m so glad you’re back, even if for just a little bit! I missed your amazing recipes. I swear on a stack of bibles that your pumpkin chili is the best and I make it every week. My family loves it too and have completely converted tobeing no-bean chili lovers (which is a feat in itself) So… thanks. Know that in this little corner of the world your food and words are making a difference. Good luck with finding gym space! Be awesome! You are!

  14. That looks so delicious! I’m loving all your recipes!

  15. Dude, starting your own gym? That is awesome. You win! I too have my own business (although it is the furthest thing possible from a gym) and it is super rewarding and super difficult all at the same time. But if you’re into crossfit you definitely have what it takes for difficult yet rewarding, right? 🙂 And just to talk about food for a minute, that spicy chicken & cauli sounds so good right about now…

  16. I’ve been compulsively checking your site because a) i’m hungry and b) i miss y’all. this looks so good, can’t wait to try it!!

    Made this this past weekend and it was delicious! thank you!!

  18. Glad to see you guys are back! Love this site–it has been so very helpful to me and, now, to my best friend! She has PCOS and a lot of your recipes are foods she can eat! Thanks for your return! 🙂


  19. I don’t normally post reviews, but I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed this recipe! I’m not a huge chicken fan, so I really struggle to find chicken recipes that I enjoy. I loved the flavor of this one…and how simple it was to prepare with ingredients that I always have in my kitchen! I don’t even follow a paleo diet, but I find myself coming to your website often for new recipe ideas. Thank you!

  20. If it counts for anything, I can speak for many in saying that we sure do miss having you and Brandon at CCF. Thanks for being great coaches and for always motivating and encouraging. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s to come for y’all and your new gym! Also, thanks for so many great recipes. I’ve tried several and can’t wait to try more!

  21. I’m so glad that I stumbled upon this awesome blog of yours! All of your recipes look delicious, including this one. I think I’m going to try this out tonight.

  22. Glad to see ya back! Best of luck with opening a new box!!!

  25. Good luck with your own CF box! My husband just opened up his CF gym about 1.5 months ago after being jobless and working on it for 3 years! It’s so worth the effort and pain. Wish you all the best!

    I made this last night, only I subbed the grated roasted sweet potatoes for the potato/cauliflower option. It was amazing!!! Thank you so much. I am not a huge chicken fan either, but I swear I could eat this for breakfast lunch and dinner.

    1. thanks so much tina!

    Another great meal. Made this today at lunchtime. I used potatoes and got chicken thighs with skin and bone-in. Unfortunately I forgot about waste, so I included the skin in the recipe to get me to 1 lb of edible chicken thigh meat. It was delicious! Only downside… I ate it in 2 servings cause I was super crazy hungry today! I’m assuming had I had all the chicken, it would have lasted another meal at least. Will definitely be making this again.

  28. […] pepperoncini peppers, oregano, zest, lemon juice, chicken stock, salt and pepper. Instructions here. […]

  29. Made this for dinner tonight. Quick, easy and delicious. Needed something to eat quickly after an exhausting WOD with waay too many wall balls! Thanks for the inspiration.

  31. I am a new to the primal/paleo lifestyle. I know I will never be totally Paleo, as I am using a little Ghee and will use some cheese and maybe some greek yogurt every once in while. Anyway, I was wondering what I was going to do with the head of cauliflower in my fridge, so I was excited to stumble upon this recipe today. It turned out delicious!!! So simple and so flavorful. The pepperoncini really set it off. I’ve downloaded a few other wonderful sounding recipes, and I just ordered Primal Cravings. I can’t wait to try more dishes.

  32. Wow – this recipe was a huge hit here. Didn’t have pepperonchini so very scrar-ed-ly used jalopeno’s. (just could not imagine oregano and jalopeno’s in the same dish) It was wonderful!

  33. First time reader. Recipe was killer! My wife ate it up faster than I could tell her the ingredients! Encore! Encore!
