Chicken Fajita Omelette
Recipe makes 1 omelette
Eggs, large- 2
Onions, chopped small- 1- 1/4” slice
Green Peppers, chopped small- 1/2 each
Grilled Chicken Breast, chopped small- 1/8 cup
Pepper jack Cheese- 2 slices
Taco/Cajun Seasoning- 1/4 teaspoon
Olive Oil- 2-3 Tablespoon
Salsa- as desired
Sour Cream- as desired
- In a non stick pan, grill a chicken breast with 1 tablespoon oil, a little salt, pepper and oregano until the breast in no longer pink. Place on a cutting board and chop into small pieces.
- In the same pan (add a little more oil if needed) cook the onions and peppers until soft with a sprinkle of salt & pepper.
- In a small non stick pan (6-8 inches), heat 1 tablespoon oil, over a medium high heat Meanwhile in a bowl mix together the 2 eggs, chopped chicken, chopped/cooked vegetables and taco seasoning. Be sure to use a whisk and really stir some air into the eggs. You should see little bubbles forming. Making sure the oil first, pour your egg mixture into the pan and allow to spread to the sides. Without touching it allow to cook for about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Slowly run a rubber spatula against the edges of the pan to loosen the egg from the sides, being careful not to rip the egg. Once the egg is completely cooked on the bottom carefully stick the rubber spatula under and flip over the omelette. Once the Omelette is flipped, place your cheese on the one side and allow to cook another minute or 2 depending the doneness you desire.
- Fold the omelette in half and remove from the pan onto the plate. Serve with salsa and sour cream.
