Lankford Grocery Texas Chicken Hash Recipe
Lankford's Grocery & Market and restaurant in Houston Texas is managed by local legend, Eydie Lankford Prior. They originally founded this business in 1939 with a small town grocery store and later in the 1970s started to expand their menue items to burgers. This is their recipe for Texas Chicken Hash that is only served on Saturdays at their restaurant. It is so delicious, and blends perfectly. The tortilla on the bottom adds a nice crunch to the chicken mixture. and if you are looking for something different that eggs and bacon for breakfast than this is perfect.
