Zucchini Chicken Omelette

Labels: { , , }

Look for a different omelette recipe for the breakfast? Zucchini Omelettes are healthy, delicious, and simple to make. Use smoked salmon, or cheese instead if you have no leftover Milanese chicken in the fridge that needs to be used up.

  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 tbsp Water
  • 150 g Zucchini, grated
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • 80 g Leftover Milanese chicken, diced
  1. Beat eggs and water in a bowl. Mix in grated zucchini and season with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a small, non-stick skillet. When hot, add half the egg mixture and cook for 1 minute until the egg begins to set. Scatter evenly with half diced chicken.
  2. Cook for a further 1-2 minutes, until the egg is golden underneath, and just set on top. Slide out onto a serving plate, folding it over as you go. Repeat. Serve the omelette with your favourite salad.

Making an omelette takes such skill and you made a beautiful one. If I ate meat, I'd be all over this recipe.

Breakfast is always my most enjoyable meal in a day. I enjoy wake up early to prepare it and eat something to fill my stomach to jump start a new day. This omelette is absolutely a good one! That's a good idea to use whatever leftover to add into the omelette. I love this!

denise @ quickies on the dinner table 23/6/10 05:35

Very tasty and handy recipe for using up leftovers though I think it would make an equally appealing light lunch with soup and salad on the side!

[Reply]

Although I could not have this for breakfast, I'd love it for lunch.

You have made the zucchini omelette different with the addition of chicken meat, even it is a leftover.

There isn't a weekend that goes by that I would get away from not making an egg based dish for Hubby. Your hearty omlette would put a great big smile on his face for sure ;o)
You want to come give me a break in my kitchen Angie?
Great photo and recipe. Thanks.

My American mom makes zucchini omelette, too, with some other leftovers from the day before! This is a ritual during summer, when they have gobs of zucchini from the garden! Yours look so delectable!

One thing is sure - I, too, am a master omelet maker. One of my favourite things to make for my husband on the weekends, and I am also a master at making them delicious with leftovers from the fridge. This one looks stellar! He would not eat it with the broccoli in it. :(

This reminds me of the way my mom used to make omelets in the summers when there inevitably would be a bumper crop of zucchinis. Great recipe for the summer!

[Reply]
Bridgett 29/6/10 03:38

Angie, this is a brilliant idea to use up leftover Milanese chicken as I always have one left over and never know what to do with just one. I will be trying this out on my omelet-loving husband!

[Reply]
theUngourmet 30/6/10 07:22

Omelets are perfect for any meal! I love the combination of ingredients in this one. :)
