Chicken and Vegetable Frittata

  • 8 Egg
  • 1 and 1/2 cups cheddar cheese grated
  • 2 teaspoons Pepper or mor if you are into pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium-sized zucchini chopped into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 Cup asparagus (spears), chopped and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 medium-sized green pepper chopped into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 medium-sized red pepper chopped into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 100 Grams Chicken use lean ground chicken
  • pinch of Salt


  • Whisk together the eggs, cheese and pepper in a large bowl. Make sure that the egg mixture is homogeneous (the mixture should be a uniform yellow—yolks and whites completely broken together). Set aside.
  • Preheat broiler to 350?F.
  • In a large saucepan over medium heat, sauté the vegetables in olive oil for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Set aside.
  • Lightly brown the ground chicken in the same saucepan, adding the salt as you sauté the meat. Lower the heat to medium-low and add the sautéed vegetables to the pan. Pour the egg-cheese mixture carefully over the vegetables.
  • Cook the mixture without stirring for 4 to 5 minutes, until you see the edges of the frittata begin to set.
  • Move the pan from the stovetop to the broiler. It will take another 4 to 5 minutes (depending on your oven) for the frittata to finish cooking. The frittata will have puffed slightly, its surface browning slightly under the broiler’s heat. Remove pan from the oven.
  • Let rest for a few minutes before removing the frittata to a serving plate with the use of a plastic spatula.
  • Slice into wedges and serve with a green salad on the side.
