Dukan Rotisserie Chicken and Broccoli Egg White Frittata

Rotisserie Chicken and Broccoli Egg White Frittata

We loved this recipe!

This was very tasty.  It was a "use what we have" type of recipe.  Opened the fridge and rummaged through the drawers.  We still had half a Costco Rotisserie chicken left from our Baked Pasta recipe, we were actually able to use it in 4 meals.

This was our lunch on Saturday -- it was nice and light.   I tried to wash dishes while the frittata cooked which led to me burning the frittata slightly, but it didn't have that yucky charred taste, it was actually good!  We used the male half's frying pan which isn't non-stick.  I'm really gonna have to bring my pans over!

PALEO NOTE: We're new to making frittatas, so we've never tried it without cheese.  This diet is pretty close to a Paleo diet -- use eggs from free range chickens, try it without cheese or find a raw cheese, use bacon drippings or the olive oil instead of non-stick spray and you've got a Paleo recipe..oh and you'll have to make your own adobo seasoning too.   After we use our adobo seasoning up, we'll be mixing our own.  So, we're calling this a Paleo - ish recipe.  Depends on who you're listening to re: the Paleo diet, some allow small amounts of this and that.

Serves 2 (with no starch)
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: approx 15-20 minutes

3/4 c. egg whites
1/3 c. water
1 1/2 c. broccoli, chopped into small pieces
3/4 c. rotisserie chicken, chopped into small pieces
1/4 sweet onion, diced
2 button mushrooms, minced (you can slice them thinly)
2 fresh sweet basil leaves, chopped
1/4 c. mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 t. adobo seasoning

In a medium size frying pan, saute onions and mushrooms over medium heat in a little bit of olive oil or non-stick spray.  Mix your egg whites, water, adobo seasoning and cheese together.  Set mixture aside.

Add broccoli, cover your pan and let your broccoli steam.  We let it steam for less than 2 minutes because we prefer our broccoli with a crunch.  Add chicken and basil, cook for 30 seconds or so.  Pour egg mixtures evenly over the chicken mixture.  Cover and let your eggs cook until done, we cooked ours for about 8-10 minutes.

Enjoy...we sure did!
