The Chicken Frittata is a savoury lover’s delight, combining soft light eggs mixed with caramelised onions, succulent chicken, a crunch of fresh broccoli and a hint of sweetness from the roasted tomatoes.
Together with being extremely satisfying on the taste buds and a great vehicle to empty out the vegie crisper, this chicken frittata is packed with essential vitamins and nutrients.
Both chicken and eggs are an incredible source of high quality protein which is great for muscle repair, low in calories and provides you with the feeling of fullness. Chicken also contains the trace mineral selenium which plays a role in supporting the immune system and helps regulate thyroid function.
Perfect alone as a post workout snack or served in wedges with a fresh salad and enjoyed on a picnic with friends. It can be served hot or cold so perfect in any kind of weather.
