Herbed Chicken Omelet
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 TimePrep/Total Time: 10 min.
- 4 eggs
- 1 green onion, sliced
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper

- 1/2 cup cubed cooked chicken
- 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
- In a small bowl, beat the eggs, onion, parsley, salt, tarragon and pepper.
