Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    one 6-8 ounce boneless skinless chicken breast
    3-4 large/extra large eggs
    3/4 cup nonfat milk
    1/2 cup chopped asparagus
    2 tbsp parmesan cheese, shredded
    1 tsp dried ground oregano
    dash of salt and pepper
    1-2 tsp olive oil

Directions

season chicken breast on both sides with salt and pepper. In a large skillet over medium heat, sear chicken on both sides and cook until firm to the touch and the juices run clear. about 7-8 minutes. set chicken aside and turn to the asparagus. you can either put the asparagus into the fritatta raw or do what I do and blanch them for 1-1.5 minutes. Chop the chicken breast into bite sized pieces and distribute over the bottom of a small frying pan. sprinkle the asparagus over the chicken and then the parmesan cheese over that. In a small bowl, beat the three eggs with the milk, oregano and the dash of salt and pepper.
Pour over the chicken, asparagus, and cheese and then place entire skillet in a 375F oven. check frequently until custard is cooked and the edges begin to pull away from the side of the pan. Slide onto a serving platter and cut into 4 quarters, giving each person two quarters of the fritatta. Is nice served with a small salad dressed with a dijon vinaigrette.

Number of Servings: 2
