Skillet Frittata with Avocado, Chicken & Peas


This morning I made a delightfully easy frittata using 
left-over ingredients. A frittata is a crust-less egg bake, similar to a quiche. You can add just about whatever your heart desires and the frittata will always look simply effortless. Here is the recipe for my frittata:

Avocado, Chicken and Pea Frittata
(serves 4-6)
1 tbsp butter 
1 cup shredded cooked chicken 
1 cup frozen peas
1 tbsp cumin 
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
Pinch salt and pepper

4 eggs, 4 egg whites
1/4 cup milk 

1 avocado, diced
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar or pepper-jack cheese

Heat broiler to high. In large cast-iron skillet, add butter over medium heat and saute chicken, peas and seasonings. Meanwhile, whisk eggs and milk together with an electric mixer until well combined. Pour egg mixture over sauteed chicken and peas over medium heat. Add avocado and cheese to the top. Cook 3 minutes, then transfer to broiler until cheese is melted and top is golden brown as show.
