Herbed Chicken Omelet Recipe

Tender chunks of leftover chicken provide a nice change of pace from the usual ham in the omelet Sonja Blow makes in Groveland, California. "Served with toast and tomato slices, it's a special breakfast for two," she notes.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 10 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 green onion, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup cubed cooked chicken
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, beat the eggs, onion, parsley, salt, tarragon and pepper.
  • 2. In a small skillet over medium heat, melt the butter; add egg mixture. As eggs set, lift edges, letting uncooked portion flow underneath. Sprinkle with chicken and celery seed. When the eggs are set, remove from the heat; fold omelet in half. Yield: 2 servings.
