Paleo Chicken Apple Egg White Omelet

Paleo Chicken Apple Egg White Omelet


This is one HUGE omelet that will supply your body with a whole bunch of healthy nutrients and keep you satisfied for a very long time. 
And talk about super tasty, too! I made this version with egg whites only, but know that it’s equally good with whole eggs also! Yes, yes, I did try it… I’m not just saying that. To this day, I still prefer my omelets with egg whites only, but I’m getting better and better at incorporating some yolks too. And frankly, the yolks work wonderfully well with this flavor combination. Oh, and if you don’t have collards on hand, spinach works just as well!



Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 cup (8) egg whites*
  • 1 small (150g) cooked chicken breast, shredded
  • 1 Golden Delicious apple, cored, peeled and diced
  • 3-4 large collard leaves, stems removed, finely chopped
  • 20g hazelnuts, lightly toasted and crushed
  • Pinch salt and pepper

Preparation:

  1. Add coconut oil to small non-stick pan and heat over medium heat.
  2. Add the pieces of chicken, sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook until nice and golden brown ;
  3. Add apples and cook until softened, about 30 seconds. Transfer to a small plate and reserve;
  4. Add collards and cook until wilted, about 30-45 seconds. Add reserved chicken and apples back into the pan.
  5. Pour in the egg whites and sprinkle chopped hazelnuts overtop.
  6. Reduce heat, cover loosely (a pizza pan works wonders for this) and cook for about 5 minutes, until the omelet is completely set and opaque throughout.
  7. Delicately slide omelet onto serving plate and serve immediately.
