Ingredients

  • 6 large eggs
  • teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup onion (diced)
  • ½ cup green bell pepper or banana pepper (diced)
  • 5 ounces chicken breast (cooked and shredded)
  • 3 ounces shredded mozzarella
  • ½ cup tikka masala sauce

Instructions

  • Place an oven rack about 6 inches from heat and preheat the broiler.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs with the pepper until well-combined, then set aside.
  • In an 8-inch ovenproof skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Once hot, add the onions and peppers, then cook for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until the vegetables have softened.
  • Stir in the chicken, then pour in the eggs. Tilt the pan to distribute the eggs evenly.
  • As the eggs begin to set on the bottom, use a spatula to lift the mixture and tilt the pan so the uncooked portion can flow underneath.
  • When the eggs are about halfway cooked, sprinkle the mozzarella on top and spoon on the sauce. Remove from heat.
  • Place the skillet in the oven and broil until the top is set, the eggs are cooked, and the cheese has melted, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the broiler and let the frittata sit for at least 5 minutes before slicing.

Notes

This recipe is for 4 servings. If you slice the frittata into quarters, each slice will be one serving.
This same method for making a frittata can be used with any combination of flavors.
Store leftover slices covered in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. You can enjoy them chilled, let them come temperature, or gently rewarm them in the oven or microwave.
