I love eggs for breakfast since they are full of protein and keep me full until lunch time. Lately, however, I have been getting bored of my usual veggie-filled omelette, and decided to try something new. Inspired by the flavours of the classic Chinese dish, peaking duck, I came up with this omelette filled with chicken flavoured with hoi sin sauce and tossed with cucumber, spring onions and spinach for a healthy dose of veggies. Give it a try if, like me, you are bored of your usual breakfast.
1 tsp sesame oil
100g roast chicken, shredded
3 tbsp hoi sin sauce, mixed with 2 tbsp water
1/4 continental cucumber, sliced thinly
1 spring onion, sliced thinly
handful of spinach leaves, shredded
- In a bowl, lightly whisk the eggs together. Heat the sesame oil in a small frying pan and add egg, swirling the pan to coat the bottom evenly. Allow to cook for a few minutes until cooked through. Remove from pan and set aside.
- Add the roast chicken and hoi sin sauce to the pan. Stir the chicken until heated through and the liquid has evaporated.
- In a bowl, combine the cucumber, spring onion and spinach leaves. Add the chicken and toss gently to combine.
- Place the omelette on a plate, top with chicken mixture and fold over before serving warm.
