The only thing hard about this fantastic frittata is deciding when to serve it. Made with chicken, cheese and sweet and chewy sun-dried tomatoes, it’s wonderful for breakfast, lunch or dinner.—Sharon Delaney-Chronis, South Milwaukee, Wisconsin

"This is the best frittata I've ever made. Usually I find them to be too dry/overcooked. I really hate overcooked eggs. The cream and the cream cheese I think really help to slow the cooking time to make it rich and stay creamy and not dry out. I was even skeptical about chicken in a frittata (since I was making it for brunch) but the basil and sundried tomatoes really just go so great with the chicken and it was a treat for sure. I will make this again - and for guests next time!"
